Gen Con Extends Contract with True Dungeon for an Additional Five Years


INDIANAPOLIS (March 9, 2018) Gen Con has renewed its contract with True Dungeon for an additional five years, with a guarantee that new content will debut at the show each year. True Dungeon premiered at Gen Con in 2003 with its first interactive, live-action story (dubbed “adventure”). Since then, they have debuted new content every year. True Dungeon offers players a chance to participate in a fantasy-based guided adventure over the course of two hours, with a constructed set, puzzles to solve, treasure, and actors to complete the experience. Players participate in storylines that are either puzzle-based or combat-based.

“Gen Con offers nearly 20,000 ticketed events, and True Dungeon proves to be among the most popular each year,” Gen Con President David Hoppe said. “Tickets for the event sell out nearly immediately. We’re excited to have a partner that provides a stellar, unique attendee experience.”

In 2017, True Dungeon celebrated its 15th anniversary by teaming with New York Times Bestselling Author Patrick Rothfuss to create adventures based on his books.

"True Dungeon is excited to extend our amazing relationship with Gen Con for another five years,” said Jeff Martin, creator of True Dungeon. “It was Gen Con's generosity and vision that helped bring True Dungeon to life, and we know True Dungeon will continue to grow and thrive with their partnership."

True Dungeon adventures have resided in Lucas Oil Stadium for the last two years, and will continue to take place in Lucas Oil Stadium through the remainder of their contract.
