AdventureX Returns!

AdventureX will return on Sat 10th and Sun 11th November 2018. The UK’s only convention dedicated to narrative-driven gaming will be back in London for a weekend dedicated to interactive fiction; exploration games; visual novels and more. This June/July, we are running a Kickstarter Campaign to raise funds for the event.


For the first time in 2018, AdventureX will be a ticketed event. The best way to get a discounted weekend pass is to support our Kickstarter, and also receive rewards including AdventureX Journals and Mystery Steam Keys. Please read our announcement for more information about the reason behind this decision.


We’ve opened applications for Speakers, Exhibitors and Volunteers. Get involved!

Applications will close a few days after the Kickstarter, on July 31st, and we will announce our full schedule in early October.

Our Venue

This year AdventureX have partnered with the British Library as part of International Games Week. The British Library Knowledge Centre is situated in Central London, minutes away from Kings Cross, St. Pancras and Euston Stations.

Guest Speakers

We will be announcing speakers as they are confirmed. At this point, we’re excited to be welcoming:

  • Mark Brown (Game Maker’s Toolkit)
  • Helen Carmichael (Shadowhand)
  • Dave Gilbert (The Blackwell Series)
  • More TBC…

(Speakers and schedule subject to change.)

The Team
