Hello GameBoomers, I wanted to let you know about another possible event for adventure game fans & developers - this time in London. We're running a fundraiser to make it happen this year, so that tickets aren't necessary and people can enter the event for free.
Here's the main post about it, with links to the appropriate websites to find out more. Thank you for your support, and if things go well - perhaps see you there!
(below is the round robin post)AdventureX - for adventure game fans, game designers & those just curious!
Hi folks, I'd like to give you a heads up about a possible AdventureX event this year. With your help we can make it happen! No tickets this year, instead a funding campaign on good old IndieGoGo. With the goal met, we can hire a central London location and allow visitors to enter for free. http://www.screen7.co.uk/adventurex
Another line up of well known and lesser known developers will be along to give talks, there'll be a bunch of new games to see and plenty more to do. Things are not finalized, and I'd welcome anyone with an interesting idea to get in touch. http://www.indiegogo.com/adventurex2012
If you can spare a few dollars to make it happen in 2012, you'll help strengthen it for the future - so whether you may be able to turn up this year or not, you can certainly help others enjoy the event this year.
There is disabled access and we'll have a webcast running this year, on-site wifi and the famous Peticote Lane market is just outside the front door - so come along!
