Group History

Ambrosia is a demo group based in denmark, and active on both the Amiga and pc platforms. They were organized by Raze and Drac, until Raze stopped organizing 06/96. Powdihacker then became the new second organizer, it seems - until he also left. Their mascot Karina is, obviously, female.
The recent smash hit doom clone game "Genetic Species" was made by the Danish Ambrosia members Powdihacker (code), Cain (gfx), Shadow Walker (gfx) and Trayzor (sound)! Other Ambrosia productions that I have only a minimum amount of information on are: "Psychopack #2 Packmenu" (intro), "Genetic Species" (aga hd demo - of the game, presumably?), "Miracle Chips #1" (aga intro) and "Scenemeeting Invitation" (aga intro).

1995 
Spiderwork, Mr.Salinas, The Crow, Kallestrup and Jolly Roger were all kicked late in the year. Sardonyx' "Seenpoint #2" [12/95] reported that Raze and Drac are the new organizers, that Jaxx left the group to become independent, that Cyboman/Balance joined, that Raivo/Black Jack joined and that Tricktrax joined from Tribe.
1997 
Artwork's "Generation #24" [04/97] reports that Spacebrain (music) joined, that Cyboman changed his handle to Eliss-D, that danish Powdihacker (org code, 12/95-) left for Puzzle, that danish Artphaze (gfx, new late96) left the group and probably the scene, that Drac joined Cosmic Woodheads as a doublemember, and finally that a pc section had been established.
  • Dutch swapper Coolio (new late96) changed his handle to Blunt and joined TRSI.
  • Musician Trayzor (12/95) left late 96.
  • Vaxx left to be independent late 95.
