History

Somewhere during 1986, Michiel Spoor (The Pretender) and Arnaud de Klerk (The File Hunter) started going to the same School (Nassau Scholengemeenschap in Breda), where they ended in the same class during their freshman year. Arnaud already owned an MSX (Toshiba HX-10) and Michiel owned an Atari 600XL, after which Arnaud convinced Michiel to buy an MSX as well (also a Toshiba). During cycling to school every day, Arnaud met Mathieu Veurman (Mr.Feet), who also owned an MSX (VG-8235). Metallica (Marnix van Adel) was originally a friend of Arnaud's brother.

Arnaud got a program listing published in an MSX Info magazine from 1986 called Vallende Sterren (Shooting Stars), which was a BASIC game, based on a game he has seen on the Atari from Michiel. Michiel already did some programming on the Atari. At first they just copied software (games) from each other, but Michiel moved his programming skill to MSX. At first also some BASIC, but quickly after that he moved to assembly. One of the first things he made was a Snake based game called Munchy. This game also got released in some software vending machines in Japan years later on, but no compensation was ever received from that. Fony's first release was the Yellow Alert Demo, soon followed by Fony Demodisk #1. During Fony Demodisk #2, Fony teamed up with more people and also used quite some Amiga technology, which wasn't appreciated by some people in the scene. Fony also had it's own BBS: Fony/Tyfoon Base, and was run by Arnaud.
