Our team started story-gameplay Web2 project since 2017 and became one of the TOP brands in this category (Link of our Web2 story-gameplay app). We have accumulated 30 million online users and 1,500 creators on our Web2 App.
The story-gameplay (also known as Script-Murder) is becoming popular in recent years. Based on the story, the player acts as one of the story roles, and interacts with others to achieve the ultimate goal from the first-person perspective. It is characterized by the strong immersion, content-based, social networking attributes, etc.
The story-gameplay industry has its own economy system and contains several different roles: professional creator, publisher, individual player, etc. With the rapid growing of this industry, it encounters several issues which need to be solved urgently, for example:
- The creation effeciency is low. It takes a professional creator two months to produce a new story, which will affect the content quantity;
- The creators only get a small part of the story selling;
- The players have no way to be profitable;
- The piracy is rampant, which will affect the creation enthusiam;
- The story price cannot be correlated with actual popularity. The price is controlled by publisher, not by the freedom market mechanism.
These issues limit the development of the whole industry. We believe that the content creators and players need to receive more incentives in the whole economic system as they contribute their innovative ideas and active participation to the whole system. We found that the Web3 and AIGC technology are very suitable to solve the problem and can give an explosive growth for high quality contents. This is the main motivation of our team to build this project.
Our vision is to create a story-gameplay co-creation platform based on Web3 and AIGC.
To solve the current issues in story-gameplay industry, we designed the FindTruman platform. It involves two platforms: UGC editor platform and story-gameplay platform. In UGC editor platform, the professional creator and the community members can co-create their own text stories. Everyone who contributed to the co-creation procedure of the story will be given a story NFT as a credential for future profit. Then, the text stories will be further developed into the 3D story-gameplay by the creator and the community members and published on our story-gameplay platform. The Web2/Web3 players need to pay for the tickets to enjoy the gameplays in our story-gameplay platform. Then, the profit from the game tickets will be shared by the Story NFT holder (including people who have contributed to the co-creation of the content) .
To incentivize the community members to participate in the project, we designed two kinds of NFTs:
Story NFT: Based on extremely fast transaction speed with extremely low cost of Waves, all professional creators on our UGC editor platform can issue the Story NFT to attract their early fans to participate in the co-creation procedure of the story. Everyone who contributed to the co-creation procedure of the story will be given a Story NFT as a credential for future profit. Evidently, the income is directly correlated to the story’s popularity in our story-gameplay platform where Web2/Web3 players will pay for the tickets to play their story games.
FindTruman Genesis NFT: FindTruman Genesis NFT is the right-and-interests for the whole platform. FindTruman Genesis NFT holders can share the governance right for future FindTruman DAO, get staking rewards, get priority access for all activities and get potential airdrop rewards.
(Fig1. Architecture of the FindTruman platform)
More detailed descriptions about the above-mentioned two parts of the FindTruman platfrom are as following:
The UGC Editor platform is a content co-creation platform. Since Waves delivers extremely fast transaction speed with extremely low cost, the creators will freely publish the stories to the blockchain.
• Incentive mechanism (Issuance of Story NFT and co-creation with Story NFT)
The professional creator could issue Story NFT on Waves. There are two ways for obtaining the Story NFT: (1) By directly purchasing the Story NFT; (2) By participating the co-creation tasks, the creators could set co-creation tasks (like creation of the cover image and role images, translation of the story into different languages, design of clue cards, 3D construction, etc.) to incentivize others with Story NFT to join the co-creation procedure together. By this way, the community with good adhesion can be created.
Story NFT holders will be deeply bound with this story, enjoy the whole plots and obtain future rewards from the Story NFT. For creators, their income will directly be linked to the story popularity which will incentivize the production of higher quality content. The creators could invite the Story NFT holders to decide the plot development by voting.
• AIGC Content Creation (AIGC tools)
To lower the barrier of content creation, attract more community members to participate in co-creation process, we designed AIGC tools. With AI technology, our platform will assist the creators to expand the inspiration of story creation, intelligently improve the story logic, polish the story and generate story cover images. It will not only improve content creation efficiency, but also lower the threshold for content creation, which will definitely empower more users to quickly create high-quality contents with AIGC technologies.
• Copyright protection (On-chain story content)
To protect the copyright of creators, all the story contents, plot updates, co-creation tasks and process will be recorded on Waves.
At the end of this procedure, the story will have a high quality content or IP with their first fans. The UGC editor platform is aimed to improve the creation efficiency. For example, professional creators usually spend 2 months for text content if he/she does the creation work alone. With this platform, the creators could co-create the story contents through community cooperation, and will only take 2 weeks to finish the story contents.
• Build 3D scenes
For the completed stories on UGC Editor platform, the users or community fans could build the releated 3D scenes by dragging and dropping on the page, just like Decentraland, Sandbox, etc. Then, the 3D story-gameplay will be released on the story-gameplay platform for public to experience.
• Unprecedented gaming experience
For Web2 and Web3 players, they will pay the tickets to be immersed in 3D story-gameplays. In the story-gameplays, the players need to act as one of the story roles and interact with other players to unlock the hidden clues. Finally, they will make reasoning to reveal the truth. The story-gameplay combines the strong sense of immersion, various story contents, thrilling reasoning experience and social networking. It will bring the players unprecedented gaming experience.
• Obtain rewards
Players need to pay for the tickets of story-gameplay, and they could get future rewards if they have an excellent performance. The ticket sales of story-gameplay will be shared to its Story NFT holders and other contributors.

The story-gameplay, integrating “CONTENT”, “Games”, “IP”, “Social networking”, is deeply favored by Gen Z. Currently, the story-gameplay is the social king of Gen Z. For the current issues like the profit distribution problem, the copyright problem… Based on blockchain and AIGC technology, we further clarify the rights-and-interests and incentive mechanism to make the creators and players more profitable, which can give an explosive growth for the production of high quality contents and forms a positive cycle.
For testing the Web3 users’ interest in this new gaming form, we have completed several story-gameplays with the combination of the 3D scenes and NFT badge incentives in the past few months.
We have construct the demo of FindTruman story-gameplay platform. We develop several stories with 3D scenes to let people understand and interact better with the story and give users some basic idea about how it will be demonstrated in 3D. We co-host with several TOP NFT communities. Here are the 3D scenes we have built:
