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. 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:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/adventurex/adventurex-2017-the-narrative-games-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)

If anyone here would like to apply to speak you can do so here:

If you have a game/project you'd like to exhibit you can apply here:

AdventureX is a free event taking place in London on the 11-12th Nov 2017, bringing together developers & gamers with a passion for interactive storytelling.

We love graphical adventures; interactive fiction; exploration games; visual novels – just about any game with a great story to tell. Since 2011 we've been inviting gamers and developers from across the globe to share their experiences and exhibit their games.

No problem I know a few people from here tend to show up each year ^___^

@BrownEyesTigre we get a lot of people in different worldwide locations saying that,I don't know why there aren't more similar events. Only other thing even vaguely similar is Wordplay which is usually in Toronto.
