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!

The Adventure Gamers write up of the first event last year:

Features this year - help us reach the funding goal!
- Dave Gilbert, Wadjet Eye Games
- Stephen Marley, Martian Gothic & Dreamweb
- Alex Warren, creator of Quest (for text adventures)
- Jon Ingold, CEO of Inkle Studios (game book adventures)
- ??????? ?????, help us reach our goal to announce another special guest!
- Daily games showcasing, choose your own adventure game, short masterclasses
- Competitions, quiz & after-party

Thank you for your support - see you in London later this year?

Thanks, that's a novel idea! So I've sent an invite to him at his office wink

I'll let you know in about 30 days if the fundraiser has been successful and if the event will go ahead or not.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

It was certainly a fun idea, but it didn't work out this time Becky, sorry! wink

Quote:

Thank you for your email kindly inviting the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, to attend and speak at your event on 15 & 16 December 2012.

I am very sorry but, much as the Mayor is very grateful for the invitation, I regret that it is not possible for him to accept on this occasion.

He has asked me to pass on his apologies and best wishes for a successful event.

Yours sincerely

I just wanted to write a quick one to say the goal was reached, the event will go ahead as planned!

There's still a week to pledge if you still want in on any of the perks, or run a business & want to sponsor the event.

Other than that, thanks & see you there! (maybe) wink
