AdventureX 2017 November 11-12 London, Kickstarter now live

Hi everyone,
It’s that time of the year again! For those of you who don’t know AdventureX is a convention dedicated to narrative & storytelling in games. We include a wide range of genres and probably most importantly for everyone here that includes interactive fiction. The event runs from November 11-12 at Goldsmith’s Uni London, entry is free and on a first come first served basis. Though this year on request there’s a guest list perk that allows Kickstarter backers to have wristbands reserved for them until lunch, at which point they get added back into the pool for free entry. This allows us to help fund the event but also means folks who have chipped in a lot and are travelling a long way know they can get in. We maxed out the venue on Saturday last year so this was the fairest system we could come up with!

To give you more of an idea about the event we produced a short video about last year’s event:

The Kickstarter is here: … convention?

So far the confirmed speakers are:

Jon Ingold (80 Days, Sorcery!)
Rolf Saxon (voice of Broken Sword’s George Stobbart)
Dave Gilbert (The Blackwell Series)
Doug Cockle (voice of Geralt of Rivia, the Witcher Series)

The schedule is now live


Would you consider running one nearer the Midlands, say Birmingham?



… and better organisation for 2019.

I got there 10 minutes after it opened on the Saturday and it was FULL. I had to go home. complete waste of time.

If you had backed the kickstarter they would let you in still, but your backing had to be >= £40, otherwise tough luck!
