3rd Logo (2000-2001) Torus Games (2000)

Nicknames: "Metal Works", "Logo Construction", "The Inverted Text"

Logo: On a medal plate, 2 paint rollers put on red and white on the top and bottom respectively. A cutting tool then punctures a hole in the plate and the outside falls off, revealing a black background with a dim light. A smaller circle is then out of the larger circle and is pushed off, flying towards the screen. The ring is then cut via a "Z" shape and the entire ring falls apart, leaving a red hump and a smaller, white hump. The humps then zoom in and come together as 2 plates with "TORUS" and "GAMES" on them blast through the humps and create the bottoms of the letters. The tops of "TORUS" then come down one by one, dropping the hump lower and a arm bring up the rest of games for the smaller "GAMES" and positions it to the right. The logo then remains and slowly zooms away.

FX/SFX: The logo forming.

Music/Sounds: The sounds of cutting, crashing, and painting before ending with a dark sounder.

Availability: Rare. Seen on Svea Rike 2 andCarmageddon 3: TDR 2000. This may also appear still on GBC games at the time as well. Strangely enough, this was used after its lifespan as a print logo despite it being replaced with the next logo.
