1992 - They recruited some of the best members from New Wave in the middle
of 1992, and seemed to be headed for greatness. When the group feel apart,
several of the members found their way to the commercial gamesmaking

Jawbreaker (Anders Dybdahl, ex Scoopex) and Lord Mindless (ex Dual Crew,
07/92) both started working on commercial projects, and RamJet/PMC (now
Spaceballs) was involved with Jawbreaker's latest game. Another one of the
founders, the Norwegian graphician Pal (ex Scoopex) left the scene to do
graphics for Nintendo games. Fairfax (gfx, ex Pure Metal Coders), Moxy
(swap, ex Cytax), and Lizard (music, ex Megastyle Inc.) all joined Andromeda
