DICE’s first game was built by five friends from the Amiga demo group The Silents in their spare time.
What started out as a demo idea soon became a full-fledged pinball simulation published by 21st Century Entertainment with the Amiga as the primary platform. Pinball Dreams captivated gamers and quickly became a cult hit. The development team consisted of Andreas Axelsson (programming), Olof Gustafsson (music & SFX), Markus Nyström (graphics), Ulf Mandorff (programming), and Fredrik Liliegren (project management). Andreas, Olof, Markus, and Fredrik founded Digital Illusions in 1992 and stayed on for many years. More than two decades on, Pinball Dreams is still fondly remembered by gamers, and is the title that laid the foundation for DICE.
