Group Information For Offbeat


Last Updated: 2 Oct. 2012

Excerpt from an interview with Flix (coder) of Offbeat:

"I was a decent GfA-Basic programmer when some articles about Assembler demo coding by TEX were published in the premiere German ST magazine in the late 80s. After reading these articles, I started coding demos myself. I founded my own one-member group The Hijackers which probably noone ever heard about and released a simple screen with rasters and a scroller (using the Knighthawks font). Some months later, Offbeat was formed. Offbeat consisted of Ray (a class-mate and good friend), Big Alec, i (who I both met at the Systems fair in Munich), and myself (Flix). After releasing a number of demos (essentially Illumination Demo 1,2, and 3, and Musical Wonder 1990 and 1991), we were visited by New Mode and Slime of Delta Force. Of course, we were very honored, not only because they invited us to ICC #2, but mainly because they asked us if we'd like to join Delta Force. Even though becoming members of one of the most well-known ST groups (and thus also being a member of the Union) was an incredible prospect, it was a very tough decision because it also meant leaving behind our own group Offbeat which just had started to gather some reputation. Anyway, we decided to join DF and I've never regretted it. Delta Force's visit at my parent's house was an amazing experience. They gave us a disk full of DF logos to be used in our future screens, including an amazing logo by Tanis which was "unreleased" at that time. Moreover, Slime improved a logo done by Ray and New Mode prepared the boot-stuff and protection for our upcoming Musical Wonder 1991 demo."
