The big moment during this decade was the comeback with the demo "World of Code" in spring 1994. It wasn't released in any party, didn't take part on any competition and didn't have any pre-publicity. So it crept slowly from person to person, amazing totally unprepared scene with the greatest C-64 demo they'd ever seen. It was three years since (B) had last released anything on C-64, and five years since group was really active on the platform, so many people actually thought (B) as a new group. The demo was very well received, and made excellent 'new entry' positions on democharts, Mr.Sex likewise climbing to World's Best Coders Top-10 charts with just one demo. Check the C-64 Warepage for more info.
