Retro Venture - welcome to modern retro computing!

Post by grey/msb »

Hello everyone! First of all let me introduce a new, small company, called "Retro Venture". Our main goals are new accessories & new games for the whole range of Atari computers and consoles - made with love by the community for the community!

Here is our first video spot:

We bring back the good memories of the 80s & 90s!

We are pleased to present you our first official product! This is the anti-dust cover designed for the Atari Jaguar console.

Not only is it very aesthetic (looks like glass) it is also resistant to cracks, fractures and UV radiation. The Jaguar has never looked so beautiful! :) The biggest problem associated with the external port for the cartridge is solved! The main reason everyone left a cart in the Jaguar all the time was to stop dust getting in there. This was one of the main reasons of getting the 'red screen', bad contacts caused by dust. Also leaving a cartridge in all the time can cause the cartridge slot pins to weaken, making a bad contact on the cartridge. It goes down in history now! :)

The cover also has port cutouts for JoyPads, as well as I/O on the back of the console. Thanks to this, there is no need for disconnecting the console, and the Jaguar itself looks EXTREMELY attractive!

In addition, we took care with the design of the box that protects the lid from eventual damage, it is simply impossible. For this reason, the box can also serve as an additional Jaguar packaging (the console fits easily together with the cover - of course without the power supply).

There's also a small surprise inside the box with every order! :)

LONG LIVE THE JAGUAR!

Price: 35 euro + 14 euro worldwide shipping

And here comes our second official product! This is a anti-dust cover for the Atari 2600 Jr. console! (fits all 3 models).

Not only is it very aesthetic (it looks like glass), it is also resistant to cracks, fractures and UV radiation. As in the case of the Atari Jaguar console, the cover gives it shine, and also eliminates the problem with an exposed cartridge port.

The cover also has cutouts for the ports for controllers and input/output on the back of the console. Thanks to this, there is no need to disconnect the console, and the Atari 2600 Jr. looks EXTREMELY attractive! (Pictures will be on Monday as I pick up the covers from the factory)

In addition, we took care to get the right height for the box, which protects the lid against possible damage - it is almost impossible. For this reason, the box can be used as an additional packaging for the Atari 2600 Jr. (the console fits easily with the cover - of course without the power supply).

A small surprise inside the box with every order! :)

PROTECT THE LEGEND OF THE VIDEO GAME INDUSTRY!

Price: 35 euro + 14 euro worldwide shipping

Exciting news regarding ST FORMAT!

I hope I'm not being too critical, but please hire an English editor to avoid grammar and spelling errors in the final magazine. Not many projects take this step, so there's an opportunity to rise above all others.

Good luck!
