3rdSense (Australia)

From CLG Wiki

Logo description and capture by Sagan Blob Background: 3rdSense is an Australian game production company well-known for producing both online and download-able flash games, mainly the successful Swords & Sandals franchise, formed in 2001. The company is the one behind the online games site fizzy.com. The company didn't have an animated logo, until Swords & Sandals III: Solo Ultratus came out in 2008.


1st Logo (2008-2012)

Note: An audio-only file of this logo can be heard here.

3rdSense Logo: We see a white-turned black background, which later filled by pieces of a fingerprint come out from all of directions, spinning and form themselves into a glowing white fingerprint. Then, the text "3rdsense" from the middle of the fingerprint zooms in a bit, and zooms out in order to positions itself while the background turns white again and the fingerprint dims and turns blue. After that, the borderlined URL "www.3rdsense.com" fades in.

FX/SFX: The color-changing BG, and the forming of the logo.

Music/Sounds: A thunder sound, followed by whooshes when the pieces are spinning and about to forming, and a deep (and ominous) whoosh when the texts appear. Depending on your loading time, it may be accompanied by the opening theme of the game.

Availability: First seen on Swords & Sandals III: Solo Ultratus, and possibly other games from 3rdSense during the era. Don't expect to see this on Swords & Sandals IV: Tavern Quests, as it skips the intro to the game.


2nd Logo (2012-)

TBA, first seen on Swords and Sandals V: Grail of Antares. Can also seen on the company's reel, here.
