The Narrative Games Convention

AdventureX is the UK's only convention dedicated to narrative-driven gaming. Now in its 6th year, AdventureX is a free event bringing together developers & gamers with a passion for interactive storytelling. Encompassing everything from retro pixel-hunts to rich, branching narratives, AdventureX is celebration of creativity, indie development and geek culture. Now pick up that spyglass and put it in your knapsack. A world of adventure awaits.

We welcomed a wide range of games, developers and game tools to AdventureX 2016, exploring diverse approaches to interactive narrative.

Why AdventureX?

We love graphical adventures; interactive fiction; exploration games; visual novels – just about any game with a great story to tell. And we welcome developers from across the globe to exhibit their games and share their experiences. For devs and creatives, it's a great opportunity to attend masterclasses on writing, character, puzzle design, coding and art. For gamers it's a chance to play games and encounter new stories.

AdventureX returns on November 19th-20th 2016! Check out our blog for the latest updates.
