2K Czech

From CLG Wiki


Background

Illusion Softworks was founded by Petr Vochozka in the Czech Republic in 1997, and produced some successful games, including Mafia. In 2008, Illusion was purchased by Take-Two Interactive and was renamed to 2K Czech. In 2014 the main office in Prague was closed, leaving the only division in Brno.

1st Logo (1998)

Logo: We see a stylized silver hat and the company name, crossed by a thin line.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Only seen on two games, both released in the Czech Republic only: Léto s Oskarem and Lurid Land.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo (1998-1999)

Logo: We see two greenish spaces on a black screen. One shows a scrabble starting with a yellow dot and two eyes looking from the inside. The second one has the words "ILLUSION" in black and "SOFTWORKS" in yellow.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: It was only seen on Hidden & Dangerous.

Editor's Note: None.

3rd Logo (2000-2008)

Logo: We see a weird orange figure with "illusion" and "softworks" below it.

Variants:

  • On Mafia, the logo is preceded by a long cutscene, where the gangster burns the logo on the arm of another gangster.
  • On Vietcong, the logo zooms below and remains there, while a sequence of other logos pass by.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Seen on Hidden & Dangerous 2 (and its addons), Mafia, Vietcong and Flying Heroes.

Editor's Note: None.

4th Logo (2010)

Logo: We move along the close-up of a pistol barrel, turned into slow motion and observe the 2K Czech logo carved on the barrel. When light passes it, the carve gleams blue. The pistol makes a shot and we chase the bullet, again turned into slow motion as the bullet moves with a trail behind and crushes the bottle with a 2K logo on it, which also floats slowly. After this, the Mafia II intro plays.

FX/SFX: Perfectly made animation.

Music/Sounds: An ingame-type tense soundtrack with a slowed down sound of shooting.

Availability: Appeared on Mafia II.

Editor's Note: Because of the slow motion, the logo is not harmful.
