The third stretch goal has just been shattered as well! 

First of all, thank you. The enthusiasm and pace of support for Codex Enigmatum is incredibly humbling. We have a fun concept in mind for this third puzzle and are looking forward to make it a reality!

So what’s next? 

The campaign is moving swiftly towards its conclusion, so we're hard at work dotting the i's and crossing the t's. As such, we're freezing the contents of the book after this last bonus puzzle; so we need an alternative extra for the next stretch goal.

Based on the feedback of our play testers, we decided on a website with an online validator, so players can check whether their solution is correct without necessarily consulting the hints or solutions at the back of book. This way no spoilers are accidentally read in case their solution happens to be incorrect. In addition, we plan to add a dedicated online forum where players can discuss puzzles and exchange additional (levels of) hints.

Of course these online components would remain purely optional extra's - you can fully enjoy all puzzles using just the book.

      @KevinVE Thank you for the suggestions. We will certainly consider them when working out the best approach to realize the final stretch goal!

      Wouldn't it be possible to make an app to check if the answer is correct? Also would be nice to have an equation where the answer is a missing number, So you can check with calculator yourself if the answer is correct.

      @God-keizer we've indeed assessed what it takes to setup and maintain such a website for a sufficiently long period and it is certainly feasible from a cost perspective. The main challenge will be in getting it ready by the time the book is shipped (or very shortly afterwards).

      Yes that would be awesome. Do make some calculations on the costs of maintaining such a web page. It needs to stay up at least 5 years. Can you generate that money in that time span?
