Free to exhibit:
see http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forums/index.php?topic=46214.msg629956#msg629956AdventureX - 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!

- Competitions, quiz & after-party
Thank you for your support - see you in London later this year?
It's still totally free to exhibit your game/company at AdventureX ! Get in touch if you want to represent
Smello. I am interested in doing this again later this year, but would be interested to have any ideas for speakers and anything else you feel can be improved. I know the location is a bit "bum" but I don't see much chance of changing that for the second run I'm afraid. Hopefully in the future though.
One speaker is certainly interested, see here - does this interest you? Who else might - preferably UK/Europeans though, can't really afford to fly Americans over I'm afraid! I've also got a couple of requests pending, and I guess it would be worth trying the people who couldn't make it last time (ie Charles Cecil, Jonathan Boakes).
If anyone thinks they may be interested in exhibiting let me know, and feel free to suggest ways to make the experience better for you. This time the schedule will be a bit more strict (meaning, I will try and stick to it!) and there will actually be tutorials this time.
One more thing to note: There are still 2 newsletters pending from the last event, which will be sent in the run up to the 2012 event (before tickets go on sale). Around the same time, everyone who contributed last year will be sent the former newsletters (you can expect this around July/August). Also many apologies to those awaiting a prize via post. I'm sending those out on the s7 relaunch around July 7th.
All comments/questions welcomed, just let me know if you have any ideas. Any games in production you'd particularly want to see? (I notice there are some that will still be in development that were featured last year, and some even got missed out of the show due to me not being overly organised).
Also dates - december good? And if so when, 8 & 9, 15 & 16, or 22 & 23?
EDIT: What AGS people would you be most thrilled to meet or have speak?
Notes by me for me
- More audio clips by developers
- London venues, Beckett's cave, universities
