AdventureX 2018 Opens Applications for Speakers, Exhibitors, Volunteers (Also, Kickstarter)

Told ya back in May that it was returning, so it's your own fault if you end up without a ticket to what is bound to be an absolutely phenomenal event, when AdventureX 2018 opens its doors in London, this November. Now that we're a bit closer to kickoff, a Kickstarter has been launched, and with it, applications for speakers, exhibitors and volunteers. Groovy stuff!

AdventureX 2018 Bringing Narrative-Driven Gaming to Central London This November

Seven years. Seven years in a row, London has played host to the awesome thing known as AdventureX; and like last year, I'll be attending once more. Just saying. You've been warned!

Not by a long shot. Oh, did I mention there's no entry fee for AdventureX? Very groovy.

Point ‘n Click Magic In the Making: AdventureX Returns For a Sixth

Six years in a row. That's one helluva track record for a convention focused entirely around narrative games, instead of, you know, every single kind. Adventure games, interactive fiction and such - these are the type of games one can expect to hear about at AdventureX, maybe even meet and greet a developer or two in the process. Maybe. Oh and talks, panels, demos, plus other fun stuff. Groovy times for sure.
