Silly Venture 2k19 - festival of Atarists is coming!

Yes, my friends... in two months in the north of Poland, one of the local facilities will be filled to the brim with atarists from around the world... Mr. TIA, Mr. POKEY YM2149 and Mr. CODEC :)

And because the SV is getting closer and closer, the organization is jumping into higher gear! To encourage more people to participate in the event, at the "Deadline" party in Berlin last weekend, the Mystic Bytes group in cooperation with Agenda presented an invitation for... SEGA MEGA DRIVE console in the "OLDSCHOOL DEMO" category, taking second place.

Binary is available for download, among others on the site POUET.NET

All invitations related with this year SV edition, can be found at DEMOZOO.ORG

From today, you can order the official SV2k19 T-shirts, which have been designed by mOOnie / MSB traditionally. And because this year we are celebrating 30 years of ATARI LYNX, they have hand-written greetings on the back, from the creator of this console - RJ Mical!

Od dnia dzisiejszego przyjmowane są zapisy na oficjalne T-shirty SV2k19, które tradycyjnie zaprojektował mOOnie/MSB. A ponieważ w tym roku obchodzimy 30-lecie ATARI LYNX'a, na tyle koszulki znajdują się ręcznie napisane pozdrowienia od twórcy tej konsoli - RJ Micala!

SV character changes a bit this year because my current professional situation forced me to do it - hence the somewhat "commercial feature" related to the options above. I hope that this will be understood. The price of the admission ticket remains the same as last year - subject to payment by the end of this month.


At party we will have Silly Fudges (thanks Maly_SWD!), and Silly Energizers :) Also other surprises are being prepared, but you will learn about it at party-place!


And what about invitations... it's not over yet :) Stay tuned :)

Beautiful magic boxes with prizes from RJ1307 are ready! Would you like to get one? Submit your compo entry for the Atari Lynx! (game/demo).




At the "Xenium 2019" event held last weekend in Katowice/POLAND (30th August - 1st September) the new invitation for "Silly Venture 2k19" has been presented! Kudos to all guys from Agenda and Lamers who put the intro together!


My Dears, I would like to provide a clarification about compo entries for the ATARI LYNX platform, related to 30th Anniversary of this console and the available prizes. We and RJ1307, the sponsor of the awards, can now announce that there will be separate "LYNX DEMO COMPO" & "LYNX GAME COMPO" categories. In both of these, the prize for the 1st place will be:

- LYNX II with a new LCD screen, AgaCart & power supply (everything in unique "substitute" packaging - surprise!).

For the 2nd place in both categories, the winner will receive a AgaCart.

IMPORTANT! If it turns out that there's only one entry in the games category, in accordance with general Compo Rules the main prize will be automatically given to this entry whilst the AgaCart for the second place will be transferred to the Demo Category as a prize for the third place.

I am delighted to announce another highlight of this year's Silly Venture, which is a concert by the "NICK:T" duo from Lodz city/Poland! As usual we will "host" real hardware on stage, and it may even be that an additional special guest will be present listening to all of this... (details just before SV!).

Short info about "NICK:T" duo

Jerzy Wcisło - keyboardist, bass-guitarist, jazz musician, younger "Atarian"

Jarosław Kwiatkowski - keyboardist, older "Atarian"

"We have been cooperating together about 1.5 years - we create mainly instrumental music, stylistically close to the electronic years of 80's. The main composer is Jerzy. The defining feature of our work is obtained through the timbre provided by vintage synthesizers. The electronic heart of all instruments is an ATARI STE. This acts mainly as a sequencer, and our sound is hugely expanded by the use of many peripherals. Thanks to this system, we can work in the peace of our mini home studio, and also play a concert successfully. The interesting other element of this system, apart from the ATARI STE), is a Commodore C64C with special software that allows SID chips to create a full professional analog synthesiser. This is used during almost all our songs".

Old synthesizers
Steinberg MIDI3
HD SCSI (ext.)
C64C (2xSID8580)

And here's the litte preview of what we will hear "live" at SV2k19!


Finally it's here! The long awaited 2nd invitro for Falcon 030 from Sommarhack 2019! Enjoy!

My Dears, as it is the 30th Anniversary of Atari Lynx, our mate RJ1307 has donated some very interesting prizes! Everyone who submits a game or demo for this console can try to "fight" for a LYNX II with a new fantastic LCD screen, or for an AGACART (Lynx SD)!

Huge thanks, RJ!

Thanks as well to Hospes for the poster.
