Background: Adeline was a French development studio, well-known for its famous adventure series. In 1997, the team was bought by Sega and renamed it as "No-Cliché" as the first wholly-owned console studio from Europe. The studio went down sometime in 2001.

FX/SFX: None or the logo forming.

Music/Sounds: A series of rising xylophone notes or a synth chime tune with a guitar and a choir.

Editor's Note: It's one of the best in-game logos.

No-Cliché


3rd Logo (1998-2001) NoCliche (1999) Logo: There are two squares, black and blue, on a white background, and there are also letters above them, "N" and "C" (with a stress sign) in custom design. The construction begin to vibrate, then it explodes and many objects fly around. After all, the squares leap back, much enlarged now to contain the whole words. The yellow O jumps, rotating, into the screen, and the stress sign trembles.

FX/SFX: Many action on the screen, with letters and objects moving in every direction.

Music/Sounds: Various ambient pops, with engine sound, then a group of children starts laughing and finally the tapping sound.

Editor's Note: The sounds and tapping effect, not to mention the children laughing may catch first-time viewers off-guard.
