Calling The Enigma Box just a “game” is really selling it very short. It’s puzzles. It’s challenges. It’s connecting the dots in a broader narrative. It’s tabletop. It’s Augmented Reality. It uses the latest in technology like 3D printing and VR. It uses the most mundane such as a paper and pencil. And it’s not something you just pull out and play with some friends on a quiet evening over (though you could do that, if you wished). It’s… a lot of things all rolled into one. It’s also up on Kickstarter now.
