Have a question?
We have a new update today!
The Enigma Box Team
a short request, is everything goes fine and like the schedule ? Will it be May (this year :p) the deliverydate?
Greetings Daniel :)
Thank you! I was already looking forward to the expansions... 😉 a bit ahead of time, I know.
@Wesley van der Vaart
Yes, you are correct. The extensions are not ready yet, we are hoping to launch them (along with some extra new ideas) in October. All our focus has been going to the box so it can be finished and delivered on time to all our backers and we will update the progress report in a couple of days.
Am I correct that I couldn’t find the expansions in the Backerkit?
I am really sorry to hear you are not happy with the French translation. Being honest we had so little time to prepare and deliver Christmas gift and we chose the translator who turned out to be not very good. Our mistake, apologies. We are going to contract another, professional translator to deal with the box text to avoid further problems. We will do our best to deliver a perfect French version!
Once again we apologize for this issue.
The Enigma Box team
I've finished the christmas gift and it was very pleasant to solve, but I'm also worried about the translation. I've received the french version and it wasn't very professional. there were missing words, typo and syntax errors... Did some french native people read your work?
I'm hopping it was only because of the rush for the christmas gift, but can you assure me that the translation will be better for the enigma box?
@Dyna, I finished the Christmas gift puzzle, but cannot send message to other backers thru this, You can ask a question on BGG (what is your username there?) https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/239982/enigma-box , then can chat about it there.
Right now we are working on all creativities , App, Virtual reality scenarios, augmented reality objects, etc. We will begin to print them in April.
In our next update (2 weeks time) we will publish digital formats of some final creative components , a VR scenario (part of it as we don’t want to reveal the VR places), and an AR object , all that to give you some idea about the whole progress.
The Enigma Box Team
Is it possible for us to see some pictures or videos of the ongoing work?
Can you send us an email to (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your questions?
Can someone that finished the Christmas puzzle please message me? I'm stuck. :-)
Awesome thanks :)
Roughly every 3 weeks we will post a status update to keep you informed on the overall progress.
We are going to do the first status update on Wednesday 14th. At the moment we are working on the most complex part of the project: the virtual reality scenarios, augmented reality objects and App (Android and iOS). Our pace is pretty good, no delays.
At the same time we are in touch with our manufacturers, double checking all measurements, materials and the whole productions process.
When will we get another (perhaps more detailed and with pictures and such) update.
Hi, We had to follow KS's rules therefore we had only 1 month to launch and fund our campaign. All sales were closed after that deadline.
We wanted to introduce our project to a wider audience so we moved to Indiegogo. Raising more money will allow us to unlock new stretch goals (we unlocked Amulet thanks to Indiegogo backers) and fund some of our future projects. Also, it is a good chance for those, who missed our campaign on KS ( quite a few backers contacted us about it) to buy our boxes.
Proud to say that Indiegogo contacted us directly asking to join InDemand, because they though our project was original.
I've discovered you're other campaign at Indiegogo, why didn't you make this one higher instead of running two?
First we need to have all surveys returned to us, some backers haven't done it yet so we are waiting for them. We will be able to charge shipping costs as soon as all surveys are done and closed, hopefully it will not take too long (2 weeks).
When are you going to actually charge cards for shipping
This is so great to hear such things, we are also very excited about the project! I am sure you will have loads of incredible fun with the box, we are working on it very hard.
The Tshirts and rings are numbered (1-4). These numbers will help you to indicate the right box. The numbers also appear in the following questions so I hope once you started filling in the survey, you would find it more clear and straightforward.
If you have more doubts, send us an email to email@example.com
we have 19 Kickstarters we are waiting for, but the Enigma Box we are most exited about :-)
we´ve orderd a pay3-get4-Pledge and I´ve seen in the pledge-manager, that I can choose for every T-shirt and Ring the size but how do you know which size belongs to which box?
Hi! Our NFC ring holds clues needed to unlock some extra content. But also, the ring itself is a cool accessory to have if you want to store some other personal data e.g. health info, payment options etc.
If you lose the ring you will still be able to play the game, access all riddles and puzzles with our App. However if you buy a ring from e.g. Amazon, it will not work with the game, simply because it will not contain specific data needed to unlock riddles.
@The Enigma Box
I'm curious about the NFC Ring. If it gets lost, will we be able to purchase replacements from you or could we just purchase similar rings from Amazon and register them with your app?
Click here to view the ring sizing chart.
The Enigma Box
Can you provide a larger image for the ring sizing chart? It is not readable.
NFC ring will give you access to some extra content of the game, however you will not need it to finish the game.
Only Delux box owners will benefit from using the ring (and that extra content) throughout the challenge. It is still a cool accessory to have and use for your own private purposes ( you can store different data, e.g. medical information, on it).
Only some of historical documents are included in Standard box. If you would like to have all of them then you could buy them with pledge manager as an addon.
The Enigma Box
Yes, the historical documents are included in the basic box. About the NFC ring, our content expert will answer you tomorrow.
The Enigma Box
I’m filling out my backerkit survey now and had some add-on questions. Curious about how the NFC ring works with the basic box? Will it greatly enhance my experience? Also, are the historical documents included in the basic box? Thanks!
Around a month from now
How long will backerkit be open
You are going to have an App with your box, it will help you throughout the game in many ways (managing the progress, completing the levels, giving access to VR scenarios, etc.).
The deluxe App is much more advanced, it would need a lot of time to be developed using cutting edge tech resources. We are actually talking here about many thousand of pounds...And this is the reason we decided to keep it as a stretch goal. Sadly it hasn't been achieved, which is a shame.
The Enigma Box team
Sorry, I am not sure what you really mean by "sizes don´t make any sense". Send us an email with more details and we will try to help.
Our email: firstname.lastname@example.org
These t-shirt sizes don't seem to make any sense
The unlock of the amulet popped a question in my head:
I picked up some comments about what the deluxe app could be, and that sounded like something I would like. Now we did not unlock it. But isn’t it an idea to make it an add-on? So we pay for the app sort of speak?
@The Enigma Box Team:
Yes I wanted to let you settle down a liitle bit ;-)
I still am looking for a time slot with my Escape Room Buddies to play the Christmas gift 😶🤬🤬
As soon as I got that done, I will let you know about my feedback.
Still looking foward to support you guys ;-)
All questions for now are answered with the latest updates.
Receiving the amulet is really cool!
Markus , nice to hear you again 😉
Please refer to updates, and let me know if you have more questions.
The Enigma Box Team
The T Shirt size options in the Pledge Manager are all too large. I bought this as a present for my wife and she will be swamped by even the small size on offer. Can you provide any smaller sizes?
First of all Happy New and Successful Year 2018.
Awesome work guys. Received the Christmas Gift very early in December. And already filled out the Pledge Manager. But I have another question regarding the Add-On Expansions. I couldn't find them in the Pledge Manager to be ordered? Will there be another update?
We have the pledge manager ready to be sent out. However we are still waiting for the final validation from BackerKit to be sure that all parameters and configurations are correct to avoid issues during the whole process. This causes some delay but we hope to have it validated very soon.
If the response comes quickly we will send the surveys in the next few days.
Thanks for your patience and understanding.
Sure! I have sent you a PM.
(I got the Deluxe Edition)
Hey! So i didnt know, that you would also get a xmas gift. So my question is, do i get this with the full game, even if i didnt sign the survey? I dont need it now, but it would be nice to get it in some way some time.
No problem :) I have all the time ;) thanks for the update
Apologies, the pledge manager will be sent out in the next few days. Please bear with us. We have been following advice from Backerkit and making sure that everything is done the certain way in order to be validated.
Thanks for your patience, you should be receiving an email regarding the pledge manager very soon.
The Enigma box team
Or I got the PM with the Christmas gift, so guess I won’t get another :)
I’m guessing you did not sent the PM this weekend? There will be an update once you do I hope? :)
Thanks for your feedback. We did our best to deliver Xmas gifts on time having only a few days to prepare everything (around 400 gifts to 20 countries), therefore we might have missed out on little things like address format etc. We will try to avoid these mistakes while delivering the boxes.
Thanks once again.
