GERP 2020 February 10th, 2020
This years Gerp demo party in Skövde, Sweden took place over the weekend. Apart from the usual suspects we saw newcomer group Bitbendaz release their first Atari production in cooperation with Rift.

Rift doubled up by also releasing a music demo for Atari STe machines consisting of many 'chip modules'. All those strange effect commands and short sample loops required re-programming of the Lance Protracker player.

Finally the third and last Atari release at Gerp was an invitation intro for Sommarhack 2020 made by SMFX, New Beat and DHS, running on Falcon 030.

DHS releases Signals music demo December 21st, 2019
Signals is a music demo with separate versions for Atari ST, STe and Falcon (with improved audio for each version). The demo contains eight tracks by Crazy Q (a.k.a. Neon Workout).

The Atari ST version features 13kHz ADPCM compressed audio streamed from hard drive while on the STe it's 25kHz and on Falcon 49kHz (MP2).

We had planned to release this much earlier, but now in time for christmas it's finally ready. Please enjoy the music and we wish you a merry christmas and a happy 2020!

Dune releases Roc'Hell December 21st, 2019
Mic of Dune writes:


Hello,

we have finally released the game we presented at the last Sillyventure party: Roc'Hell.


The project comes with:

- The game itself
- A level editor
- And all resources, including art

The game is a take on the now classic Boulder Dash but has room and art enough for a few twists.

The goal is for someone to take it over and finish it. It's still very rough around the edges (no proper menu, no music, some extra design features are missing, no proper level design etc). An STe version for instance would be great (smooth scrolling, better sounds, blitting vs movem, etc...).

We think this could be an interesting project for a small team. Meanwhile, you can always have a go at the game and enjoy what is there :)

Silly Venture 2019 quick roundup December 8th, 2019
Anohter year, another Silly Venture.

We've heard reports of a party hall packed full with Atari guys, old and young, newbies and legends. The competitions were split up to two nights where graphics, music and wild were shown on friday and the rest on saturday.

This year the 8-bits showed who's boss. Some truly great productions there while the 16/32-bit guys were mostly still catching their breath from last years edition.

Demozoo is slowly filling up with the entries, see links below. Videos are slowly being added as well.

Ultra of Cream working on development cartridge for Atari November 4th, 2019
In a break from the intense work of finishing the Heftig demo Ultra of Cream reveals a new hardware and software solution for Atari development aid.

It's a cartridge on the Atari that connects to a host PC via USB. The host can upload and execute a quite large (800k) demo in about a second. Furthermore the host can can reset the Atari between each run.

The cartridge also contains memory for the Bugaboo debugger helping to debug the code on real hardware.

The cartridge and software will be open sourced later on.
