    Re: thinStudio Logo :-)

    LionHeart and Mike(Abraxas), I like your guys logos too and it gave me an idea. The ideas was sparked by Petr's comment about being bored by opening logos.

    Petr or Mike(Hartlef) could write a routine that could randomly pick these various nice logos you guys are coming up with, this way the intro logo will never be boring and also a different random effect could be used with them. Petr has done waving textures before, blurs and glows. This way all these neat logos you guys are coming up with could be used and the startup could be exciting each time as something new.

    Then any animated movie clips we make can be used for a trailer instead of the game. Just an idea. If the team decides to go this route we could work on single image logos for a nice variety.

    Re: thinStudio Logo :-)

    Kent,

    maybe this post will sound a little negative, but that is because I am writing something for school right now ... and semicolons make me scratch the wall again. Oh well.

    When we look from our point of view, it is totally right to put all developed logos and let them play randomly. I really like the community here, so it would be sort of not nice to not use someones logo.

    But from user=gamer point of view ... at the time he will play the game he will probably not know our comunity, so multiple logos would seem to him like:
    • "unnecessary bloating of game package"
    • "if they cannot find single representative logo for their team, they must be complete unprofessional weirdos"
    • "I do not care about their logo, I want to play the game ... NOW" - and that is where I am "bored" by the logos of other games, not because they are not attractive enough, but I do not care when starting the game for 50th time


    So with this in head I would vote for single logo, ESCAPEable, very well done, showing for short time. If the gamer wants to know more about team, we can ( we will! ) add nice, slowly scrolling Credits, optionally launchable from main menu.

    I apologize once again if this is too negative.

    I second Petr point. And I think he was not to negative. Critics should be said, not matter what. At least if we wanna get something serious done.

    I think logo is important but it can come after the game.

    The old thinStudio fading away logo is perfect for me: light, fast, impressive.
    With a little very light background sound it can be superb.

    If something better will come out during game creation, ... good. Otherwise we already have something, isn't it?

    I always like opinions and how Eros allows them in these nice forums. I am for whatever the team goes with and your opinions are never negative Petr.

    Re: thinStudio Logo :-)

    hi all
    a short input for this week-end evening..

    - We have time to find the best fitted logo for the a) THINSTUDIO TEAM and b) the "GAME" until the monkey competition ends, isn't it?
    (Countdown: 132 days until CM 2009 contest ends!) much time, isn't it?

    =>... to find a logo for the team AND the game...That is the task on this board thread

    I cannot reply to all the last posts, but I agree to petr's last big comment...

    So with this in head I would vote for single logo, ESCAPEable, very well done, showing for short time. If the gamer wants to know more about team, we can ( we will! ) add nice, slowly scrolling Credits, optionally launchable from main menu.
    - critics (constructive) are every time welcome... so what we have this community for?

    - @eros:
    you are right: yes, we have "one" logo... if we find a better logo as the old thinStudio logo or we can improve, we will make it... ( I will try it of course)

    but...

    - we have a new team here, so we can build a new one that's my effort to build it, otherwise we can use the old one... why not?

    my idea: I will collect all ideas of good created Logos until the end of the game scripting days here and start a 'logo poll' again

    - the idea of some kind of credits list (logos, team, background) is good for the game player, they wanted to get more infos about the game... I like the idea, petr...

    @ kent:
    good ideas and created things like you have built (animated gifs) are always with a positively value! I like your logo and the idea behind it... but I agree with petr and mike, that perhaps 'multiple logos' are oversized (overtuned) for this game intro...

    nevertheless... I love animated gifs! and a creative work you have made kent!

    more logo ideas I will create tomorrow and the following days...

    best regards, lionheart
    nice evening for all here...

    ps: It's sometimes a time intensive job here to read all posts and creating things, but I love it ! I am not "up to date" to all posts of thinStudio...

    I need a "thinBasic read" roboter to check all post of the thinStudio team !

    Hi Lionheart,

    I think the game logo should be done once the game is done, to reflect its contents best.

    Re: thinStudio Logo :-)

    good morning all...

    put another little thinStudio logo try on this place...
    not so good: I have saved it as *png format, but therefore I have lost my 3d shadows of the thinStudio logo, my 2d manipulation software deleted it... ;( too much levels...

    yes,
    I think the game logo should be done once the game is done, to reflect its contents best.
    dear petr, you are right...
    besides that I will follow my tbgl examples to learn more...

    best regards, my dog is just waiting for the morning walking through rain! ...

    caio, best regards, Lionheart

    ps: .. and grinning greetings from "hägar" too
