AdventureX 2018 – Submissions open! Talks, games, volunteers

Hi everyone.

AdventureX the narrative gaming convention is running again on November 10-11, this time in partnership with the British Library as part of Games in Libraries week.

Submission Deadline is July 31st!

The submissions for AdventureX 2018, note that everyone who is accepted will get free entrance to the event.

Submission forms can be found here:

We’re looking for a number of games, development tools ( e.g game engines/relevant software), and interactive fiction to exhibit. Games must feature a narrative focus but other than that we’re open to whatever you’d like to submit. We’d love to have a good IF presence at the event. We do need at least a demo to make sure you’d be prepared to exhibit at the time of the conference. Each accepted game will get two free passes into the conference.

We’re also looking for speakers, the current confirmed guest speakers are:

Mark Brown (Game Maker’s Toolkit)
Helen Carmichael (Shadowhand)
Dave Gilbert (Wadjet Eye Games)

For an idea of the kinds of talks that go on please see the youtube.

Talks are around 30 mins ( 20 mins talk plus 10 mins Q&A).

We’d also love to see volunteers, it’s a great way to attend the conference for free. We’ll provide food and drink. We rely on volunteers to successfully run the event.

If you’d like to attend you can also back the Kickstarter for a ticket, plus a bunch of rewards including Steam Keys, Journals, Ebooks and pin badges. … convention

Further tickets will be released via the British Library Website after the Kickstarter has finished.
