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!

Oh and talks, panels, demos, plus other fun stuff. Groovy times for sure.
