Asterix (Cedric Roserens) was a member of the cpc team UNiX

Asterix was the older brother of TMP. This Swiss demomaker started programming in BASIC when his father offered him and his brother a CPC 464 (yeah, the one with the cassette player). After a while he started programming little line of Assembler using the BASIC commands PEEK and POKE. Pretty soon he little brother TMP (thirteen years old at the time) convinced him to use an Assembler editor. From then on the two brothers and their local CPC mate Warlock started with some serious demomaking. Beside his two Swiss mates he had an excellent contact to the Danish grand-father of the scene JLCS (long live Lasse Pladsen and Rolroed med Floede !) and the Austrian programming prodigy Elmsoft. Elmsoft and Asterix made one of their first demos together and called it TwinBlast Demo. JLCS later on helped founding the group UNiX the Swiss trio.
