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


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.

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.

.tSCc. is riding the Synthwave with Laser Days January 26th, 2019
Lotek Style writes:

A very unexpected Christmas release came from The Sirius Cybernetics Corporation. Lotek Style was working on his new E.P. during the year 2018 and after the music was finished they decided it would be a nice bonus to have this as a Falcon music disc as well.
The release runs on a standard Falcon 030 and features a new MP2 system esp. developed for this release.

Get ready for a trip into the 80s and back.
