About Realm Of Illusion

Realm Of Illusion (ROi) - russian demogroup founded 5 April 1994 (release date of iNFUSED BYTES #1 diskmag) in St.Petersburg, Russia.

Initially there were two members - CodeRipper (Peter Sobolev aka Frog) as organizer and coder, Jumbo BigBug (Sergio Konvisaroff) as musician. It was early days of russian demoscene and networks. We have created DEMO.DESIGN echoconference (for 2-3 years Fidonet and BBS was the only way to spread information and files in xUSSR countries).

People posted several intros in DEMO.DESIGN and alot of code so, next year (1995) we decide to organize first russian demo party called ENLiGHT. At the same time Realm Of Illusion got Wind Dragon (Dmitry Letokhovsky) as musician and, several month later, Lord Ville (Alexey Kolpikov) as graphician and WindWalker (Mikhail Malakhov) as coder.

In 1996 we organized ENLiGHT'96. Some intros, reports and iNFUSED BYTES #2 were released. Lord Ville left ROi before ENLiGHT'96. DragonFair joined as coder (but in 1999 he dead in car accident).

ENLiGHT'97 was the last ENLiGHT demo party. In 1999 another group of demoscene lovers organized CHAOS CONSTRUCTIONS demo party (also in St.Petersburg). In 2004 we joined CC organizers and till now (2015) CHAOS CONSTRUCTIONS is a largest russian demo party focused on demoscene, vintage computers and unusual hardware.

In same years we've developed some Internet projects (iNFUSED BYTES online , Wandering Camera) but it wasn't directly related to demoscene.

In 2015-2016 Frog coded several intros for ancient platforms - Vectrex computer and TI-99/4a. Released at Solskogen, Chaos Constructions and Revision. So, ROi returns ;-)
