About this project
AdventureX is a free event taking place in London on the 11-12th Nov 2017, bringing together developers & gamers with a passion for interactive storytelling.
We love graphical adventures; interactive fiction; exploration games; visual novels – just about any game with a great story to tell. Since 2011 we've been inviting gamers and developers from across the globe to share their experiences and exhibit their games.
We hit our target within 24 hours! AdventureX 2017 is on. We've also ploughed through our stretch goals, and will actually be making a Big Papercraft Figurine. We do what we must because we can.
"What rewards do I get?"
This year, we've commissioned illustrator Simon Reid to create some unique, collectable mementos of AdventureX 2017. Pin-badges proved hugely popular in 2016, so they will be back with 6 new designs.
This year, we're creating adorable Papercraft Figurines with interchangeable heads - so you can assemble and re-assemble an infinite variety of characters!
You can also grab a Mystery Steam Key from one of the developers supporting this Kickstarter Campaign. It's a pot luck of narrative-driven indie splendour!
"Who will be speaking?"
We will be announcing guest speakers as soon as they are confirmed. So far we look forward to welcoming:
- Jon Ingold (80 Days, Sorcery!)
- Rolf Saxon (voice of Broken Sword's George Stobbart)
- Dave Gilbert (The Blackwell Series)
- Doug Cockle (voice of Geralt of Rivia, the Witcher Series)
- More TBC...
(Speakers and schedule subject to change.)
Previous guest speakers include:
- Charles Cecil (Broken Sword, Beneath A Steel Sky)
- Rhianna Pratchett (Tomb Raider)
- Emily Short (Galatea)
- Steve Ince (The Witcher, So Blonde)

"Where does the money go?"
AdventureX is a not-for-profit event, and it's free to attend for both visitors and exhibitors. Our biggest overhead is the cost of venue hire, but we also need a budget for promotion, print media, Kickstarter rewards and to ensure the viability of the event in future years.
"Can I buy a ticket?"
Just like last year, the event is free and non-ticketed. However, for 2017 we are offering a limited edition Guest List reward. Select the Adventure Xtreme or Adventure Xquisite tier to get your name on the Guest List.
Backers on the Guest List will be guaranteed entry as long as they arrive before midday. We think this is the best way of keeping the event free, and making sure people who've travelled a long way don't end up disappointed.
Guest List T&Cs: The Guest List reward is non-transferrable. Backers on the Guest List must arrive before 12.00pm each day to be guaranteed entry.
You don't have to get on the Guest List, you can just arrive early and join the queue. Even if the Guest List sells out, we have reserved spaces to allow people to turn up on the day. Another way to guarantee entry is to volunteer to help run the event.
If you would like to volunteer to help run the event, (welcoming visitors and speakers, running livestreams etc.) please complete the Volunteer Application Form.
Risks and challenges
With a live event like AdventureX, there are always risks. Speakers can pull out, travel can be disrupted, tech failures can scupper presentations.
We have many successful events under our belt, but it's important for us to insure ourselves against unexpected twists and to secure the future of the event. With our experience and your support, we're confident we can deliver another great AdventureX.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
