To all backers who are about to receive The Enigma Box

5 likes

Hi, To all backers who are about to receive The Enigma Box:  

1. Please, take your time to READ and READ again and learn the manuals: “Enigma Box: Learn to play” and “Game Levels”. Understanding the unique style of this game, how the elements (VR, Riddles, Map etc) work and how to use them in an optimal way- are going to make the whole experience more enjoyable and rewarding (and faster!)  

2. We will send you an email with the instructions on how to access the App. You can download the App on your mobile here: http://www.theenigmabox.com/get_app  

3. Within the App you are going to find a guide in which you will find solutions to all scenarios (in about a month). It will take you, step by step, through the riddles, explaining the clues and giving you ready answers in case you get stuck. It might be extremely tempting to look at the guide in order to speed up the game, but it would spoil the whole experience for you. So be brave, open your mind, call all your mental forces and try to play the game without the clues as much as you can. We believe in your skills, you can do it ;). So then..it is time now to: THINK. DISCOVER. TRY NEW THINGS. ENJOY!  

IMPORTANT

 (1): It is ok with us if you want to publish some pictures of the game, but please, bear in mind, that asking too many detailed questions might spoil the game for the rest of the backers. Therefore, if you have any questions, please write us at: info@theenigmabox.com 

(2): We are NOT going to answer any questions on how to solve the riddles and we will not be giving you any clues. Sounds tough, but otherwise we would be drowning in tons of questions every day. Also, we would like you guys to challenge yourselves in the most possible way before you seek help. So keep trying and don't give up easily. In about a month we will publish a file with all answers and videos with solutions, but it will be entirely up to you whether you use it or not.

Thanks, 

The Enigma Box Team

      Hi,

      We understand your anxiety about the game but please, wait with your judgements until you have the box in your hands :)

      There will be many cards with clues inside the box, they will help you when you find yourself stuck at any point. You should be able to progress smoothly through the game using only these cards. However, knowing the complexity of the game and having on board many backers who are not experienced in riddles, VR etc we decided to create a help file with INSTRUCTIONS and ANSWERS. And we are pretty sure that many of you will find them very helpful at some point (we have many backers struggling with the Xmas gift ;)).

      In our help guide you will find instructions and explanation on how to solve particular riddles..not only answers. Each riddle and scenerio will have a separate instruction on how to find the answer, including the steps and videos.

      To summarize, you will have a few options in case you feel lost: cards with clues, talking to fellow backers (facebook Enigma box fan page), asking friends for help, looking up our help guide for instructions and finally, when you are completely clueless, checking the answers.

      No one is forcing you to use the help guide. It will be entirely your decision. If you are a highly motivated person, you will be able to finish the game without any help from our side.
      It is not the competition, there will be no winners nor losers. Take your time, relax and enjoy.

      Thanks,

      The Enigma Box Team

      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. 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

      Thanks,

      Yes, 30 days is just too early... i dont want to have the answers, even if i get stuck, i want to ask more people to help me, coming back after few days for a different point of view... and i'm afraid i will look at the guide if it exists. Sorry for very frenchy english :) cant wait to play !

      Hi guys, was a solution ever posted for the xmas letter gift?

      I agree with Stevelabny.... the Deluxe box was very expensive and I don’t want to be sent the answers after only 30 days... if my box gets delayed or lost I could get the answers before the puzzles!!! There should be more time and more hints before the answers are released. WHAT IS THE RUSH!!!

      um..please dont do it this way. most smaller and cheaper puzzle/escape/ type games dont just go to the answer, they actually provide a hint system. If I do wind up stuck, I dont want my only choice to be stay stick or get the answer. I would like a hint to nudge me along. I understand why you dont want to answer every email and such, but youve had plenty of time to build a hint system as you created the puzzles. Don’t leave a hint system in the hands of your customers.

      Awesome! It never occurred to me to read the manuals in this game. I always thought like in ‘The Mummy’ once I crack the lid in front of other people, there would be a hissing noise or something to start the journey.
