Akella (Russia)

From CLG Wiki

1st Logo (2000)

Logo: A starfield is seen expanding into the screen. The stars move, and a constellation fades in, zooming out as some of the stars spin around to surround it, and then the constellation wipes into a drawing of a dog, which is enclosed into a square. Below it there's the word "AKELLA". The glow behind the logo fades out. The starfield background disappears, as the dog logo fades away and the name moves into the center in a "rollercoaster" fashion, as the URL domains "www." and ".com" slide into the sides of the word. The domains then zoom away and the "AKELLA" text blurs out.

FX/SFX: The starfield, the zooming, the glow, the sliding, and the blur.

Music/Sounds: A majestic brass-dominant fanfare.

Availability: Seen on Sea Dogs.

Editor's Note: None.


2nd Logo (2000s-)

Logo: A yellow light appears to the center and blurs in the Akella logomark, which zooms in. This time, the square is filled yellow and the dog is drawn like a sketch, and the word "Akella" seems to be on a rough font. The light vanishes and the logo fades out.

Variant: On earlier games like Hard to be a God, the "Akella" text and the logomark zoom out. The logo's shadow is seen on an illuminated wood background.

FX/SFX: The light, the logo zooming in.

Music/Sounds: A bassy synth pad combined with an ethereal synth bell.

Availability: Seen on their more recent games.

Editor's Note: None.
