My Dears, it's been 20 years! Exactly two decades ago, on April 21st of 2000, the first "Silly Venture" took place in Gdansk/POLAND. It was to be a one-time "Venture", to maintain the tradition of Easter events and fill the gap left by those not taking place that year - "Error in Line" party in Germany, and it became... almost cyclical. For this occasion our friend wiecz0r prepared another installment of the event page and composed a new moody soundtrack "for the background".

However, this year's event is not only the 20th anniversary of SV, but also the 35th birthday of the Atari ST computer! You can learn more about these topics in places like the "WASSUP?" section, at the familiar address of:

@sim: merci, Simon ;) see you this year!


And what do you think about the Silly Venture 2020 logo with a white background? :) Of course, you can use them in your production on any platform with the fuji mountain badge;) If anyone has a specific wish associated with this - mOOnie will definitely help :)

Guys, we still have a lot of "extra" T-shirts after the last SV edition in 2019. Unfortunately, due to the tight schedule of the event, I was not able to deal with their sale during SV (as I initially planned), and when I rested and wanted to deal with this topic - COVID-19 appeared. Needless to say, the shipping of some awards has also been suspended ... (there was also a problem with the return of shipments, including the ones from Australia). The profit from the sale of these T-shirts will be used to ship the remaining prizes. As a reminder - in 2019 we celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Atari Lynx console, hence the shirts include hand-made greetings to event participants from RJ Mical - the creator of this fantastic handheld (in addition, the ATARI logo is printed on the sleeve).

For the same reason, the 2020 calendar is also about this console. Due to the fact that we have the month of May, people willing to buy a T-shirt will receive a calendar FOR FREE !!!

Please send orders to: info@retroventure.eu (yes, RETRO Venture, not Silly), entering in the subject of the e-mail: "T-shirt SV2k19". When ordering T-shirts, please provide its SIZE, quantity.

My Dears, due to the 20th anniversary of Silly Venture, we wanted to give you more than one T-shirt colour to choose from - especially since the logo designed by mOOnie looks simply amazing on all of them! :) We will probably choose the 3 or 4 that get the most votes, however we ask that people who decide to buy them take part in the survey. T-shirts will go to print next week - you will be able to order them pretty soon! (also with home delivery). Oh, and the most important thing - t-shirts will be even better quality than in previous years.

The survey can be found at the official SV2020 profile on FACEBOOK: linky

So, WE HAVE IT! 🙂 Below are the results of the survey on the colour of T-shirts for SV2020. In total 201 votes were cast - 4 additionally for white, which is not available. We were going to choose 3-4 colours... but ALL proposed ones (7 of them!) are available.

The price for one piece is 17 EURO + shipping costs. People who want to buy are asked to choose the size(s) and colour(s) by completing the survey under this link:


Production will start after collecting at least half of the votes cast, it is 100 pcs. T-shirts will be sent within a period of about 3 weeks.

At the request of some people, I added size 5XL (available colours: black, grey and navy blue). There is no grey colour in the survey, but it is similar to graphite - I ask interested persons to select this option.
