Group History

Coma was a german demo group, first formed at the Action Conference 90 in october, and became a fully operation group at the the Amiga Expo the following month. It was a fusion of the three groups Antares, Exage and Exess.

1991 
Coma was very active in their first months of existence, releasing several intros and demos at both the Action Conference in february and the CeBit 91 in march. More intros and demos followed, until the group was completely reformed around the middle of the year, and a lot of 'dead meat' was forced to leave. This probably means Mr.L, Cato, Slugger, Lawbreaker, Tracer, Booker, Chatman, Alva, Hellraiser, Rockstar (ex Agile, new mid91), Ariel, Calypso, Sub Zero, Ze Worst and Hygraicc. This event was announced in their intro "Kick Out". Finnish member Curse joined Arise in september. The releases kept coming, with several new demos like "Burger Hill" and "Hot Dots" and the first two issues of their successful diskmag, "McDisk" the future looked great. Swiss swapper Antifast joined Zenith late91.
1992 
Unfortunately, the start of the year would prove disastrous for Coma. After releasing the third issue of "McDisk" in january, their three best german coders (Microforce, Cosmos and Zap) joined Sanity; their best musician (Virgill) joined TRSI and the rest of the group - Control, Mad Butcher, Head (old handle Amok), Jackie D., Mission, Tom Copper, Mop (ex Dartagnan/Axis (old), new mid91), Nick O'Teen and Aahz - decided to join Alcatraz Entertainment Software rather than keep it going as a separate group. Their diskmag came with them to the new group. Cytax' "I.C.E #8" [mid92] reported that the group Interactive was born by former members of Equinox, Coma and others, so some former members probably also found their way there. Germans Renegade (gfx, 01/92) and Orbit (08/91) joined Design, probably early 92.
