      Great to hear that they are about to ship!

      Hopefully they'll ship out in numerical order! Just kidding!

      But seriously, be extra careful with #2, that's my baby! It's been a long 9 months.

      HI Peter,

      The boxes haven't been shipped yet. But it won't be long as we are planning to send them (in waves) at the begining of next week.

      You should receive your DHL tracking number from then on you will be able to see how far (close!) your parcel is.

      Thanks,

      Should we have Shipping notices by now?

      @Caragorn

      Hi,

      Yes, you are absolutely right here. We have been so focused on shipping arrangements (we would like to begin sending the boxes sometime next week) that we didn't pay much attention to organizing the party.

      But no worries, it is still on! According to our latest plan we will host the party during the last week of July/first week of August.

      Apologies for this delay, very busy with adding the finishing touches to the boxes :)

      Thanks,

      The Enigma Box Team

      I do understand, i would think it was unfair only if it was a physical object that could be used with the box. If a video is made and all can see it then that is more than acceptable. I am looking forward to getting my box. Either way i wouldnt let the "surprise"ruin my experience with the box. I appreciate all of your hard work to everyone invovled. I was just expressing my opinion thats all.

      @SJ4GOGETA12

      Hi,

      I wish we could make everyone happy but unfortunately, it is not possible. Sorry, if you feel this is not fair to those living in the US, Australia, China etc but we are based in Europe and here we have facilities to accomodate a party (a small one). The surprise mentioned in the latest update doesn't necessary have to be a physical object, it might be an experience, show or something else, it is still to be decided. We are going to record the party and all our backers will be able to download and watch the video.

      So, once again, our apologies for your disappointment and we hope you are going to have tons of fun with the box :)

      Will the surprise that everyone recieves at the party be available to everyone else as well? I live in the U.S. and as much as id love to be there i cant afford to be. It seems frustrating to know only those who are there are getting something special for that. Especially for all the deluxe backers as well.

      Hi James!

      Thanks a lot for your support, it really means a lot to us. We are lucky to have such great backers who have never doubted in our project. We have been working our pants off to bring Enigma box to life and now we are nearly there! Very happy with the overall design, quality, also impressed with backers' patience and understanding, what a great experience!

      Already excited about our future projects, Enigma box is only the beginning :)

      Thank you once again and we hope you will have tons of fun with your box,

      We got shipping dates!!! I'm 47 years old jumping around the house like a little kid on Christmas! These last few weeks are going to feel longer than the last 6 months.

      To all those Nae-sayers that said this day would never come and it would be impossible for a new self published company to accomplish everything this fast. "Na-Na Na-Na Boo Boo!"

      Great job getting a deal with DHL.

      @GhostStegosaurus

      After solving the riddles you were given access to Enigma Box introductory video.

      This is the url: http://www.theenigmabox.com/code

      And this is the password you would get if you solved the Christmas riddles: 89D214

      @Evil Ted

      Hi!
      For the Christmas Gift, we had specific codes to access AR & VR Worlds. And now, after 5 months, we need to use these codes and space for virtual objects and scenarios of Enigma Box game.

      So apologies, but unfortunately they will not work anymore with the Xmas gift.

      But honestly, I would not worry too much about it, as you are going to have many more great VR & AR challenges in your Enigma Box in your home in 2-3 weeks!

      Thanks,

      Hi, I totally forgot about the Christmas Gift.
      It‘s too late now. :(
      What was the reward for completing it?

    20. Evil Ted on

      Why did you have to deactivate the app?

      I am guilty of waiting to do the Christmas gift until I got the actual box.
      Is there a way to allow the app for the Enigma Box to work on it?
      So when The Enigma Box goes live we can use it on the Christmas puzzle too.

    21. The Enigma Box Creator on

      @Simon Hunt

      Sorry Simon, but it was only a seasonal campaign, we closed it in May and the app was deactivated. But don't worry, you will find many more AR challenges in your Enigma Box, it will be with you in 2-3 weeks. We are working with DHL on delivery options.

      Hi!

      Yes, you are a bit late :) Our apologies, but the Xmas gift was disactivated 2 months ago (app). We will send you a small compensation, you will find a Historial Documents Challenge (quite similar to Xmas gift) inside your box!

      Ok I know I'm crazy late but I'm just getting around to trying the Christmas letter and am stumped. I don't see anything to use the zapper app on an am wondering if I'm missing a page. I have 3 pages. One with the 3D printed snowflake attached, one that says Merry Christmas on the top, and one that says Main Riddle at the top. Am I missing a page, or just an obvious clue to something?

      Hi,

      The content of PDF pledge is part of the Enigma Box global game, we will start sending them at the same time as the boxes. It would spoil the game if we sent them earlier, so we hope you understand and thank you for your patience!

      Hi,

      We are experiencing a minor delay caused by one of our providers but we are aiming to deliver the boxes in the last week of June. Hopefully you will be back by then? If not, please give us instructions what to do, we could deliver your box to a different address or deliver it to you at a later date.

      Hi!

      Actually, the main point in that riddle isn't the text at all, the important and relevant part is about the colours, shapes etc 😉

      @ensis1981

      Thanks for the comments, we really appreciate your constructive feedback, there is always room for improvement. We are not perfect 😉

      Those examples of scenes were our first version of 360 (put together 2 moths ago), they weren't of the best quality, but we had to publish them to give backers some visual ideas about the project. Since then we have polished the 360 scenarios and they do look better. Our Apps (Android & iOS) have been sent to App Stores and we are waiting for approbation.

      Just to add, we have already manufactured the boxes' structure we are very happy with the results. Very soon we will be publishing a new update with pictures and info.

      Once again, thanks for your comments and help, very much appreciated!

      Hi,
      we agree because we understood well the direction of the project and I happy about it! Nothing to say about the quality of the 360° scenes.. our criticism (intended as a constructive one) are all about the "raw" integration of the puzzle elements that seem in contrast with the beauty of the 360° scenery! Is very simple to smooth the puzzle/clue/object's images to fit them as "part of the scenery" with a little photoshop editing.

      SPOILER:

      For example: the five clock on the little bridge, they seem to float around without any sense.. you could resolve this by fixing the clock against a wall to make them more credible and apply some little shadow in the outline; or again, the 3 letters (PLS) under the statue on the bridge are instead better implemented in the scenery than the cat,goose,squirrel at the bottom of the fountain (that's we're talking about when we said "made with Paint by a children" ), or the many keys on the wall in the hallway, with some few filter and color correction they can seem A LOT more realistic and integrated in the background!!!

      Hoping we explained a little better this time. Thanks for the clarification anyway, and keep it up with your good work!!

    47. The Enigma Box Creator on

      @ensis1981

      Hi!

      We are using a specific 360 software to create different scenarios in the game, not the Paint software (it would be impossible to do it!) and we published only examples of the scenarios (you will have a better integration in the App). Bear in mind that “The Enigma Box” is a Board game with many riddles, technologies (augmented reality, virtual reality, 3D printing, NFC Chips, etc.) and numerous different objects. Virtual Reality is only a part , not the game itself, We are not designing and programming a HTC or Oculus game, we are designing a game experience that uses 360 scenarios to enrich the way you play.

      Thanks,

      The Enigma Box Team

      Hi,
      me and some other backer have a concern: the overall quality of the VR scenes showed as example.. well, do they represent the quality of the final product? Or you had show us them before the proper graphic editing of the puzzle's elements in the scene?

      It just our opinion that they seem "done by amateurish at most, or children in some cases", like they're made with a cut and paste from Winows95's Paint software?
