SNDH archive 4.8 released February 5th, 2023
Grazey of PHF writes:

Well 5 years late, but finally the latest (and last) SNDH update is ready. It was way back on 6th January 2018 when v4.7 was unleashed. This release features over 700 new or updated SNDH files amounting to over 1600 tunes. Highlights for this final outing include: 0913 tunes by Ultrasyd, the resurgence of Jess and your usual batch of quirky obscure curiosities. We have also updated the web-site, so from now on new SNDH’s will be available immediately. For more info please read the SNDH 4.8 read me document and the SNDH blog. Ohhhhh and there’s a tasty intro with this release from PHF – KUA – Sector 1 – Loud!

Silly Venture 2022 Summer Edition July 13th, 2022
Grey of Mystic Bytes writes:

Dear Silly Venture participants - Both those who will physically show up at the event, and those who observe us remotely - I have to show you something ... :) But before I can write it down, a short introduction: Until the summer edition of Silly Venture 2022, to be held in the days from August 12 to August 14 remains (which is easy count) just over a month away! Almost all the details related to the event are already known and (I think I can risk such a statement) it has a good reputation among atarians all over the world. Managed to build up the brand I was working on, with few breaks since 2000!

Due to the fact that ATARI is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, an unprecedented thing happened. In a way it is a historical event and the culmination of my contribution to promoting ATARI brands in the world :) I am happy like a kid! :D

Well, the official patronage over the event was taken up by ATARI.

Yes, THIS IS NOT A JOKE! Atari has become the official patron of Silly Venture! Soon I will receive prizes for participants competitions - incl. in the form of VCS consoles! Speaking of competitions, all submitted and presented entries will be viewed by... new Atari management :) This is what happened with previous SV entries, because I was asked to send links to the entries that were submitted for competitions over the years - from VCS to the XL/XE series, ST/STe, Lynx, Falcon, and ending with Jaguar! Including... DEMOS! :) It is possible that something will attract the attention of Atari enough that it will want to start closer cooperation with an author sometime? :)

Could you imagine a better celebration of Atari's 50th anniversary? :) And that's not all! There are also many attractions waiting for us at the party itself, including a long competition marathon - traditionally a lot of entries are expected from the VCS console to the XL/XE, ST/STe series, Lynx, Falcon and Jaguar! Entries are also expected from friendly "guest" platforms (C64 and others), which SV did not exclude and will not exclude :)

Thank you all! This is our joint work! :)

At this point, I would like to mention one of the participants of the SV, who supports this year's SV in a special way - Thomas Niemann (a.k.a. Schlampf). It was he who made me believe that there is nothing impossible! Made me have a look at the entire legacy of SV from a different perspective and follow the blow - thank you for that, Thomas! <3 For your faith in SV and in me! :)

And finally, today we have an official video-invitation that encourages you to participate in both this year's SV2022 editions - summer and winter:

See you at the summer / winter edition of Silly Venture 2022!


p.s. I have one more request for you. If you are going to participate in SV (whether it's physically or remotely), or maybe you'd like to support the event by purchasing any of the tickets - do it now! This will allow me to pay off the installments related to the venue and related logistics.

Sommarhack 2022 July 12th, 2022
Sommarhack went off as planned the past weekend.

A full house with Atari nerds of all ages met for 48 hours in Malmgården, Grådö, Dalarna. We saw the usual bunch of people alongside a few new faces. Atari quiz, Atari ST colouring, barbeque, Llamatron, swimming (!) and the usual Atariscene compos were in place with many happy attendees.

Thank you all who showed up, sent in compo contributions or supported the party in any other way, you all rule!

Check the links below for download/videos of the Sommarhack releases.

Silly Venture 2021 releases December 14th, 2021
Silly Venture 2021 had a record-breaking turn around time of just a few months since the 2020+1 edition which took place in late August.

Still there we were treated with some goodies in most categories, among others a huge ST graphics competition, what a revival in ST graphics it has been in the last year or so!

All in all Overlanders stole the show (once again!) with a new ST demo, hopefully to be released shortly.

Check out the links below to download or stream the entries, more and more of them are getting uploaded.

As always, we make it with love, passion and lot of time.

Here's the credits:

Update between major events November 7th, 2021
It's been a couple of months since we got a lot of new releases at the Silly Venture 2020+1 SE. The next Silly Venture is due in just a few weeks and with some luck we'll be treated with some goodies again.

In the interim we've seen a couple of surprise releases at parties that usually don't get much Atari love.

First up at Deadline 2021 in Berlin, Rabenauge released a music demo titled Chipo Django #1 for the Amiga 500 containing a bunch of "chip"-Protracker modules. As Insane of .tSCc. is involved, he also released a version for the Atari STe (with Falcon compatibility on RGB screens) playing the same modules using Leonards Paula emulator. It's a nice set of modules to enjoy.

Then Assembly 2021 'Creative Tech' party recently had a surprise Atari Falcon demo from Extream called Trippus Lunaticus. It's probably their most polished Falcon demo to date with very good music, as has become to norm from Extream (hey guys, we need a music demo!). Awesome stuff Emphii, Mace and the rest of the gang, highly appreciated!
