Gogo on Indigogo - We Want to Reach New Coasts to Find New Treasures, Join Us so You Don´T Miss Any!
3 months ago – Tue, Sep 03, 2019 at 10:54:19 PM

Of course we will come back and launch our new innovative projects on Kickstarter first because Kickstarter was the Kickstarter that made us successful. Nonetheless, we also want to take the chance and find new supporters on Indigogo. For this reason, we decided to make a product, that is either new nor already existing, the Milk-E-Wall. This one centimeter thick glass is illuminated by RGB Leds and has the Milky Way laser etched inside. We plan different variants, from small to large. The largest will be 40x40 cm.

This is only one variant of the Milk-E-Wall

We also made a new prototype of a base...the SpaceBase and here is the first footage.

The SpaceBase

Last but not least we made a stunning video compilation of the past three years of CinkS labs, that will be our campaign video for our Indigogo campaign.

I guess, like in the past on Kickstarter, it is also very important on Indiegogo to get your support within the first day. Therefore we want to kindly ask you to support our campaign right from the beginning if you want to support us again. You can go to our preview page and subscribe here:

Thank you for all the support!

A Christmas Present for My Backers
12 months ago – Tue, Dec 25, 2018 at 12:32:18 AM

This post is for backers only. Please visit Kickstarter.com and log in to read.

The last packages were shipped...
12 months ago – Thu, Dec 13, 2018 at 01:01:20 AM

Finally, all packages are sent and should arrive this year.

Ok, to be precise, not all packages. But all regular packages and the few replaces for defective goods have been sent. We want to thank you for your patience! We know, a delay of 5 months is huge but we hope, in the end, it was worth the waiting.

43 backers did not fill out their surveys on Backerkit until today. We send reminders every week, so take a look in your spam folder, if you missed our emails.

37 backers did this and filled out their survey within the past 2 weeks. These packages will be sent now.

Hooray! We also got 491 preorders within the past months and we start shipping these right after the 37 late birds. 

Thank you for your support, we hope you will also participate in our recently running campaign
The Star Constellations in a Sphere and a Game

Best regards and Merry Christmas,
CinkS labs, Christoph and Clemens

Ludi Incipiant, Let The Games Begin...
about 1 year ago – Thu, Nov 08, 2018 at 12:16:00 AM

The Campaign Is Finished, Verified by Kickstarter and, Next to Some Minor Changes, Ready for Its Launch On...

Friday 9th Nov at 18:00 CET(Ger) / 12:00 EST(US)
and will run until my birthday on 
Friday 9th Jan at 18:00 CET(Ger) / 12:00 EST(US)


But, to be very honest, I am struggling to set a price for the Startets and would love to hear your comments. Please be as sincere as possible. For sure, most of you would love to get it as cheap as possible, I would for sure, but I want you to see, that there also was and is a lot of work in the game. It contains a minimum of 88 unique cards and a booklet, so we struggle between 10€ earlybird/15€ regular or 15€ early bird/ 20€ regular. 

Do you think this is a fair deal?

Second question:

To make it a little more simple, we want to bundle every Sphere with an LED Baseplate, because only a few dozens of people bought a sphere without the base and some reordered them.
The price for the Baseplate would stay at 10€ and the Sphere´s at 59€ in regular, so it is 69€ then. Do you think this is legit or will lead to dissatisfaction and the question, if this is an out of season April fools joke (I guess, not everyone will get the reference, but that´s ok ^^)? 

Last but not least, I would be very happy, if you support the campaign right at the beginning, so it will get a nice big impact and we will be shown as a team favorite. To make this even more attractive, we added some Early birds.

EARLy Birds...phew such a bad pun...

Thank you in advance for your honesty,
Have fun with the new campaign.

Our laser is working again...
about 1 year ago – Sat, Nov 03, 2018 at 01:43:04 AM

We have some good news for you. Our laser is working, which means that the production is in full swing again. We expect the first 400 spheres at the beginning of next week and then we can start shipping them at the end of next week. 

We hope that we can send out all missing packages within the next two weeks and then we can start shipping the preorders and complaints. 

As soon as we receive the tracking codes for the packages, we will put them on BackerKit. Please note that if you have ordered more than one sphere, you will most likely receive two packages. 

We are very sorry that you have to wait for such a long time. We learn from our mistakes and we will do better next time!

Also some good news, Clemens is currently in the last preparations for the new campaign, so we hope we can validate it through Kickstarter within the next days and launch it within the next week. We will announce it one day before the launch, so you can go for the early birds.

warmest regards,
Clemens & Team
