Group History

Darkage is an Italian based demo group, formed by Modem/Ram Jam in the early days of 1997. They arranged the 'Spoletium' party in Italy in march 1998. When Kaosmaster joined, he had the Ram Jam magchart "Showtime" with him.

1997 
Artwork's "Generation #24" [04/97] announced the group's birth. Spanish coder DCB joined in august. The group then made it big at The Italian Gathering in the following month, september, by winning both the demo and intro competitions with "Vanilla Drug Overdose" [09/97] and "Crash" [09/97] respectively! Shortly after, Italians EgoLoop (code, 08-09/97) and Aud (music, 09/97) both left the scene.
1998 
English editor Kalf (Tony Landord) decided to leave the scene early in the year, after being heavily criticized in an article in Seenpoint #7. Ghandy, The Lawnmover Man (TLM) and Mod3m stopped swapping early in the year.
2000 
Zito (editor) joined from Apathy, while Norwegian graphician Bridgeclaw doublejoined from Gods early in the year. Cupid (code) left for Iris. In december, the official Showtime site (done by Dire) was officially opened at http://scenet.de/showtime/.
2001 
Graphician SuperK decided to leave the group for Iris. Early this year, the entire group was shocked when italian coder, founder and leader Modem (Paolo D'Urso) finally decided to leave the scene. After some internal discussion, the rest of the members decided to keep the group going, and a new main organizer was elected; Ghandy.
April came with the Mekka Symposium party, but the group's sole release this year was the intro "Welcome To Our World II" in cooperation with Iris. After the party however, the group was happily reinforced when talented German coder Stingray joined from Secretly. Stingray immediately begun coding a musicdisk for swedish musician Racoon (to feature graphics by Noogman/Scoopex), but was sidetracked to do the final coding for Showtime. After a few nights of intense work, he could present the latest issue, and "Showtime #16" [04/01] was released on the 26th of april, as the first issue with Zito as main editor. Stingray released a fixed version of Kefrens' musicdisk "Multi Mega Mix" on the 25th of july. Stingray released a fixed version of the old Equinox musicdisk "Sonical Fantasia" on the 18th of august, then a collection of four fixed Crack Inc cracktros on the 25th of august.
