Is "Ian & Mic" and "Reptilia Design" the same group?

I wanna ask the old sceners out there, if "ian & mic" and "reptilia design" actually is the same group?

I know that ian and mic were in reptilia design, but reptilia design also had other members (atleast according to a scroll) - maybe ian and mic changed their groupname from "Ian & Mic" to "reptilia design" at some point (understandable...) ?

Hope some of you can shed some light on this.

Ian & Mic aren't Reptilia Design, it was Snake, Stack and a few others. When they were trying to get into the games business, Steve Snake (Snake... Reptilia... geddit? =-) let them use the Reptilia name as a foot in the door since he was already doing commercial work.

Okay... But, according to some scrolls, Reptilia Designs also did some parts for demos. Is that because ian & mic were so happy that they got into reptilia designs that they sometimes used that group-name instead of "ian & mic", or what?

From what Snake said, they were just given the okay to use the name for games use and were never technically members of the group - they may have co-opped with Reptilia members, although i only remember them working with Rob "Mantronix" Whittaker and he's not on the list Snake supplied (Snake, Stack, Diz, Syco and Yogi with the first two actually doing most the work accordin to him =-).

i won't post Snake's email to the board, but i can forward it if y'want? i had I&M listed as Reptilia on the legacy site.

just to confuse even more..

The demo "TRIAD/ REPT.DEMO" was coded by Ian & Mic and with gfx from Rob Whitaker. Just after the triad intro there's the credits and the text; "Reptila Designs Demo Disk". So they have used the name atleast once.

Just a quick note - does SNAKE still work at Iguana developments in the north of UK ? He chose a suitably named company to work for, didn't he? :)

To anyone still interested in this...

TMR's got it all right above. Snake was the founder and his list of members above comprise the original Reptilia Designs.

Snake agreed to let Ian & Mic use the Reptilia Designs name when they were trying to sell their first game, to make us all sound a bit more professional and organized rather than the school kids we were.

However Ian & Mic used the name for demos as well as games which is where the confusion comes in, to the extent that only the later 'Reptilia Designs', ie Ian & Mic's list of members, are really remembered today, hence this whole thread.

They used the name on four published games and many demos. When they left the demo scene they became WOW and concentrated on doing games for a while before giving up altogether.

Rob "Mantronix" Whitaker.
