1st Logo (2003-2004)


Logo: A thunderstorm happens. One thunderbolt then strikes the surface, causing purple particles to appear, and the words "IGNITION" and "entertainment" to zoom out below. There's some blurring effects on "IGNITION", as it gets attracted by electricity. The electricity then forms the logo, consisting of a picture of thunder on a blue sky. The text moves away, with "for Videogame Redefined" appearing below. The logo disappears as "IGNITION" quickly zooms in slightly.

FX/SFX: The thunder/electricity effects, the blurring text.

Music/Sounds: Just the sounds of thunder and electricity.

Availability: Spotted on their early games including Pool Paradise.
