The Bitmap Vandals were a UK demogroup founded by Obi Okwudili which programmed two demos.

Their famously bad first demo, Demoware, was coded by Obi and LDC, and received general scorn. However, by Demoware 2, Obi had recruited several more coders into the group and the end result was technically impressive for the time - especially for a British demo.

Unfortunately, it was never officially released, but a .DSK was eventually made available by Interrupt after discussions on comp.sys.amstrad.8bit.

The Bitmap Vandals were also originally engaged to write the code for Grace Under Pressure, the replacement for Presto News which eventually became BTL. Grace Under Pressure was never released.
