1st Logo

Nickname: "The Special Rainbow Armadillo"

Logo: Against a white background, we see a an armadillo drawing, starting with tail, then body, then head and finally the legs. As it's done animating, the colored stripes appear over the armadillo as large brush strokes, and the words "INFOGRAMES"Infogrames Multimedia (1995) with "MULTIMEDIA" in a black box below, appear under the picture.

  • On MS-DOS games, the logo is more rough, and the words simply appear than fade in.
  • On Marco Polo, the logo is still.
FX/SFX: Armadillo drawing, stripes appearing, the words fading in.

Music/Sounds: A monotonous background tune with siren-like sound, the crystallized notes when lines appear, and a hard fading out drop.

Availability: Extremely rare, as this only appeared on Infogrames' CD-I titles and some MS-DOS ports of their CD-I games. The games featuring this logo are Les Schtroumpfs: Le Téléportaschtroumpf, Marco Polo,
Kether, Solar Crusade, Asterix: Caesar's Challenge, International Tennis Open and Chaos Control.
