Weirdness: Developer Marvelous AQL's New Logo Certainly Makes an Impact
Posted by Nicola Hayden
For better or for worse
While many developers are worshiped by an army of dedicated fans, others are met with humble logo recognition while players hammer at the start button waiting for a main menu to appear. Marvelous AQL, the developer of niche titles such as New Little King's Story and co-developer of the grotesque Soul Sacrifice, may fall into the latter bracket – but it's hoping to turn this around by giving its logo a bold face-lift.
The explosion of orange certainly does stand out compared to its previous incarnation, even if it resembles Microsoft Office word art. With the dropping of the 'AQL', though, it's hard to tell that the two icons belong to the same company without prior knowledge. Do you believe that the new signature will give the firm some limelight, or do you prefer the original symbol's understated design? Leave you graphic tips in the comments section below.
