Formed from the Swap Groups The Red Berets and 'BAD BOYS INC'. Most members were recruited from the Shepparton Commodore 64 Club. Joined MAD (MAD AUSSIE DEALERS) for a brief period in 1990.
By our second demo we had lost DEFENDER and VINDICATOR and gained ZORRO.
Entered the IKON VISUAL demo competition in January 1991 and won with our SPOTLIGHT demo.
BAD.INC. changed his handle to GOTHIC soon after becoming known as a swapper, and he was rapidly becoming better at graphics. His pics first appeared in GREEN MAN STORY.
WANTED was first released about the same time as GREEN MAN.
SLARTIBARTFAST/FVD joined and about the time of ASSAULT AND BATTERY, SHOGUN joined and became SHOCKER/BATTERY. Soon also MIKE/NOVA joined our ranks and become JESTA/BATTERY.
At the end of 1991 after the release of our demo disk, in which all of our coders released demos, TROJAN left us, and sold his computer.
1992 saw us slow down as we were all in senior levels at school.
Our last demo TOXIC had a few parts finished, and planned to be 5-6 parts long, featuring all new graphics from MINDCRIME and GOTHIC. It was never released....
Spotlight II was planned for January 1993, to celebrate the demo that brought us fame. We had all gone our seperate ways by then.
