AdventureX: Adventure Game Event

Do you sleep with Sam and Max dolls next to your bed? Do you have all the Discworld games, still in their original, oversized PC box packaging? Are you madly in love with Dan or Ben and their funny, angular walks (accurate to real life, I can confirm)?

If so then AdventureX 2012 is for you! AdventureX is a kind of festival / conference event for adventure game fans and makers, both professional and independent. There will be hands on adventure games previews, presentations on up and coming adventure games, a quiz (with prizes!), an audience driven choose-your-own-adventure, and an after-party.

Guest speakers already confirmed are Dave Gilbert of Wadjet Eye Games and creator of the Blackwell series and Stephen Marely, writer and designer on Playstation and PC survival horror Martian Gothic.

The event runs for two days, over Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th December. It is being held near Liverpool Street Stn., on Middlesex Street under the kind awnings of the University of East Anglia, and entry will be free.

How does such a grand and unparalleled games super-event manage to charge nothing on the doors though? The organisers, Mark Lovegrove and Alasdair Beckett-King, have set up an Indie-Go-Go fundraiser to secure £1665 ($2200) to cover all the costs of the event. It’s a lovely, socialistic endeavour, which means anyone can just turn up on the day, and they don’t have to worry about selling enough tickets on the door. It does need your help to get it going though.
