Group History

Aurora was a demo group based in sweden, perhaps best remembered for their sadly underrated but great musician Dreamweaver.

1991 
With the release of the demo "Illusions" [12/91] in december, several new members were announced: Deejay, Trinity, Rocket (all ex Hypnosis), Trodac (ex Alpha Flight), Dodger and Ragman.
1992 
A lot of the group's time was put into development of their game "Tomtespelet" (The Santa Claus Game) early this year, which they were hoping to finish sometime in the spring. Swedish Dexter joined from Alpha Flight with his board 'TOTAL DISASTER' around january. An upcoming music disk with music by Dreamweaver, Dee Jay and Horace Wimp was announced for release 'soon' in PMC and New Wave's diskmag "R.A.W #2" [02/92], but was never finished as far as we are aware. Zcandaler reopened his board in september. At The Party in december, the groups final demo "Lost In Denmark" [12/92] was released to a disappointing 11th position in the demo competition.
1993 
Swedish coders Spirou and Cuddley (both new 09/92) joined The Silents sometime between january and may. The group died late in the year.

Jampin and Thorax left.

Coder and graphician Rubicon (12/91) joined Fairlight.

Swede Rocket (ex Hypnosis, new 12/91) joined Virtual.

The board 'PARTYLINE' left.

German sysop Headhunter ('CONDEMNED CELL'/'PARTY LINE', 09-10/91) joined Dual Crew.

Swedish sysop Damien ('PURPLE PLEXUS') joined Complex.

Swedish sysop Dare ('SLIME CITY') left the scene.
