Group History

Freedom Force was an international demo group, likely formed around 1988. Their main driving force in the early days were finnish coder and graphician Lucifer. They also released a demopack series called "Swingdisk", and the first disks came out around 1988.

1988
After at least four demos in two months, concluding with "Megademo Advertising", the group started out as one of the more productive ones of its time, despite seemingly only having one active coder.
1990
Nothing appeared from the group at first this year, with the group's main efforts going into the "Megademo" [03/89] which was released at The Gang, Zyx and Amiga Lords party in Sweden at the beginning of march. A memberlist published in the demo revealed some changes since that last one, published five months before; Sagon was gone, while Pink Panther and McCursor were new members in Denmark; musician Blair Zupicich was new in New Zealand; Roly was new in Germany; Nucleus was new in England; and Norwegian Dynamo was new in Norway. He later left for System 5 around July.
