Group History

Alliance Design was probably born in the first few months of 1991 - at least that's when their first productions started appearing. They were a french demo group, with strong links to the illegal scene. They were the Quartex demo division for quite a while, and released what is probably their best-known demo, "Substance" [04/91], for them. After they left Quartex, there were rumours that they became a Crystal subgroup instead, but this is untrue.

French graphician Mack (who joined in april) left again for Scoopex just a few months after. Frenchmen Walt (gfx) and Motif (code) joined from The Silents around september.
PMC's "R.A.W #2" [02/92] announced Corto was working on the group's next demo, "Land of Liquor", to feature music by Moby. As history proved, this demo unfortunately never saw the light of day =(. Corto was busted for blueboxing early in the year, and this lead to the death of the group. This was even published in Pure Metal Coders' diskmag "R.A.W #3" [07/92], but it wasn't quite true yet since the group was later active, and released a demo as late as january 93. What IS true is that Walt and Motif left the group for Melon Dezign.
The group's final release came in january of this year, with the noteworthy "Arkham Asylum" [01/93] in cooperation with Dreamdealers - where most of the group's members had now migrated.

French graphicians Zebig and 7th Eye joined Dreamdealers (pre 07/92).

Frenchman Traitor (04/91) joined Crystal.
