Black Hammer Productions

From CLG Wiki

(1997-2009?)

Nicknames: "The Mallet", "Molten Mallet", "The I Spy Logo"

Logo: On a black background, a rusty bucket fades in and tilts over, pouring out molten metal onto a invisible floor. After it finishes dumping it's contents, the bucket rotates to the orange inside and moves towards the center, while the molten puddle morphs into a mallet shape and rotates towards the center, and a orange dot draws in a red line. Then, the bucket turns into a cream yellow circle with white lines, the mallet cools into a black color and moves in front of the circle, and the line flips into a oblong with "BLACK HAMMER PRODUCTIONS" on it in black lettering. As they all fit into place, the cream yellow text "INTERACTIVE MEDIA" fades in below the circle.

Variants:

  • The logo's framerate and size depend from game to game, but it usually goes at a medium framerate and small size.
  • The original release of I Spy (1997), now known as I Spy: School Days, it's still.
  • Later titles have the "INTERACTIVE MEDIA" text removed.
  • On I Spy Challenger for the GBA, the entire thing is remade on a white background. The mallet remains, but the thing is now surrounded by a white glow and black mist. The futuristic lettering "BHg" can be seen in from of it, colored white with a black glow. "BLACK HAMMER GAME" can be seen below it in a more normal font, and in the same styling as "BHg" barring "GAME" since it's white and inside the "g". This logo is actually for their normal game sublabel, Black Hammer Game.

FX/SFX: The bucket being dumped, the logo forming.

Music/Sounds: A dark ambient sound with the sounds of magma flowing out. At the end, a flame erupting and 3 bangs, the last held out, can be heard.

Availability: Uncommon. This logo appears on all the I Spy games from 1997-2006, as well as Dora Saves The Crystal Kingdom, and other titles for PC.
