And now one of the prizes that will land in the competition prize pool for Atari ST / STe!

Radovan Sabo from Atari.SK once again supported our event with CosmosEx 3 - but attention! It is unique because... this is the LAST piece of this device: CosmosEx 4 is planned in a period of about a year, but due to difficulties with access to some components, it is difficult to define specific release date.

Radovan, thank you!

We present a photo of the main prizes for the winter edition of Silly Venture 2022 (December 8-11). It still lacks MEDUSA Retro SCANDOUBLER, which is on its way to us.

BB Image

- first place in Atari 2600 VCS Demo Compo - Atari 7800 + - Ultimate Atari Video mod + Dragonfly SD Cartridge
- first place in Atari XL/XE Demo compo - Atari 1040 STe
- first place in Atari XL/XE Game Compo - Atari 2600 VCS + 2600 UNO
- first place in Atari ST/STe Demo compo - Atari Jaguar

Attention! Assigning prizes to specific platforms are suggestions. Talks with the creators of the works are underway (we want the equipment to go to people who are planning some demoscene activity on a selected platform).

The above-mentioned prizes will be awarded only if there are at least 2 entries in each category (but note! We reserve the right to make a selection!). Otherwise, the prizes will end up in the prize pool of the next SV in 2023.

Atari 65XE and ZX Spectrum +2 (NOS) have not yet been assigned to any category, because we are hearing rumors about competition entries for other platforms - including Atari 5200 and Atari 7800.

Christmas is coming and so is Silly Venture! :) You probably wondered what will appear in the "Welcome Pack" this time? Well, we will not reveal everything for now, but today we are taking a sneak peek for everyone who has already purchased or will purchase "Strong Support" ticket! Thanks to the Polish company "Retronics", which probably all fans of retro consoles and retro computers know, to each "Welcome Pack" set will be added a beautiful Christmas tree bauble with the "Atari" logo! :)

BB Image

And in a slightly smaller, limited edition edition also a bauble for our Friends from the sister scene "Commodore" - a bauble with the "Commodore" logo :) The bauble itself without the size of a large orange - the photo does not reflect it, but its diameter is 10cm!

BB Image

We hope that despite the resignation from competitions for C64, our Friends who have been coming to SV for years will appreciate this gesture :) We encourage you with all our hearts to submit your competition entries for Atari!

Many thanks to Duddie from Retronics for the idea and implementation! <3
