AdventureX 2018 - Nov 10th & 11th
« on: 08 Jul 2017, 14:00 »

AdventureX will be returning to London on the 10th & 11th of November 2018. Yay! We have launched a Kickstarter Campaign to help AdventureX keep growing. Please share the campaign & support us if you can.


Applications for exhibitors / speakers / volunteers are now open:
Applications close July 31st. We don't charge exhibitors to show off their games at AdventureX.

There biggest changes for 2018 are:

  • We are running in partnership with the British Library, as part of International Games Week. This means we have a bigger venue, in a central London location.
  • AdnventureX 2018 will be a ticketed event for the first time. But you can get significantly discounted tickets if you back the Kickstarter fast! For more info on this decision, please check out the 2018 announcement.

I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at AdventureX 2018!

Clifftop Games and Faravid Interactive are now proud sponsors of Adventure X, and we will also attend to showcase our game Whispers of a Machine.

And me and Joel will hang around and socialize and stuff!

The stretch goals are coming soon. Frankly, we didn't expect to hit the target this quickly and I didn't have the graphic ready. I'm pretty sure there will be a livestream, because we've probably already hit the stretch goal for it!

Very well done reaching your goal and way beyond! I'm wondering, have you considered bringing back the charity fund-raising element? And, if there are capacity issues (just reflecting on some comments I've seen about the place and, well, your own media statements about first come first served), what is stopping you from opening up the larger lecture hall? Just curious :)

Since no one at the event thinks AGS is relevant to adventure games any more... :P

AdventureX is already halfway through.
Live stream is here: https://go.twitch.tv/adventurexpo

Too bad, there was no reminder here. Were the talks recorded?

Judging by how they handled the previous years, yes.

Might take a while for them to upload.

No idea how long twitch keeps recordings.

Sorry you missed the livestream! Technical problems (that weren't our fault) meant that Dave Gilbert's opening talk wasn't streamed. But it was recorded by Adventure-Treff and should appear on their YouTube channel. All the other talks were recorded, with (hopefully) improved audio equipment. They're available on twitch for a while, and we'll clean up the picture and sound and put them on the AdventureX YouTube channel over the next weeks.

For anyone who missed the drama on the Saturday morning: even though we had tested it minutes earlier, the lectern in the auditorium stopped working just before the first talk. So we had to move the entire conference from the 120 seater into the larger auditorium next door, running 30 minutes behind schedule. This is something we didn't want to do, because we'd rather have a 120 seater absolutely packed out (with lots of people left outside playing games) than a 250+ seater looking half-full (with fewer people left to play games). None of this was ideal, but we had no alternative. I hope it didn't impact too negatively upon the exhibitors' experience. The room change is also why the videos from Saturday have piles of tables and whiteboards everywhere -  we weren't expecting anyone to see them!

In spite of this, I felt that the talks were some of the most inspiring and thought provoking we've had. The feedback I've heard has been very positive.

They were inspiring indeed, Ali, and I'm quite frankly still feeling a kind of "positive unease" after Brian Moriarty's speech. I find myself going back in my mind to specific chunks of his talk a lot.
I already did it live, but I want to thank you and everyone else involved in the event's organization. Thank you. I had a blast.

I just wanted to let you know we at Adventure-Treff are nearly done with the video coverage from 2017's AdventureX.

I think we have covered all the talks (correct me if I'm wrong) and also recorded some interviews with developers. We have one or two more videos in our production queue, then we should be done.

You can find all the videos here:

Bump! The Kickstarter for AdventureX 2018 will launch at midday tomorrow. Keep an eye on our twitter feed and get in fast for early bird discounts on a weekend pass.

The announcement on the blog goes into detail about our new venue, and why we've decided to make the event ticketed this year.

Quadruple bump. (Do let me know if you want me to stop bumping, but in the past people have complained that AdventureX info was late to arrive on the AGS forums.)

If you missed the Kickstarter, but still want a ticket, tomorrow is the big day. The remaining tickets go on sale from the British Library on Monday: https://www.bl.uk/events/adventurex-weekend-ticket

If the Kickstarter is anything to go by, there's a decent chance the tickets will sell-out. The full schedule will be announced soon, but Ragnar Tornquist (of The Longest Journey) and Dave Gilbert (of this parish) will both be sharing their wisdom. That seems like a good enough endorsement to me.

And just as I thought that I might still be able to make it, it sells out. Bad luck, I guess.
Still, keep us updated here and we might follow you on the live-stream.

Bumping this now as it got neglected last year.
It would be nice if some AGSers at the event would post here occasionally. Pics, updates, fun news. Anything to make the rest of us feel included. Thanks.

Live stream is here:
http://adventurexpo.org/livestream/

(The page above says that the livestream will be live on 11th and 12th. I’m guessing that’s a hangover from last year. It would say 10th and 11th.)
