The word is out, and as a result, True Dungeon sessions at Gen Con Indy next month have already sold out. Over 1,500 event tickets have been snatched up for the walk-through dungeon adventure game, at nearly $20 each. If the True Heroes sessions, themed around superheroes and backed by Upper Deck Entertainment, sell remotely as well, I’m sure we’ll be seeing True Adventures Ltd. running these events for years to come.
