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.
