Background: Sculptured Software was a US video game developer that was founded by Bryan Brandenburg, George Metos and Peter Adams in 1984. It was incorporated in the state of Utah on July 12, 1985 by George Metos with two investors, Michael Macris and Robert Burgener. Sculptured Software was acquired in an all stock transaction by Acclaim Entertainment on October 9, 1995. In November 1997, it's co-founder George Metos and it's vice president of development, Kelly Zmack left the company and as a result, it was renamed to "Iguana West" and was ran by Peter Suarez at that time. In 1999 it was renamed again to "Acclaim Studios Salt Lake City". In December 2002, the studio was closed by Acclaim due to financial problems. It never used a logo until 1992. It's first game was Beach-Head for Apple II.

: "The Light Ray Text"

Logo: On a black background, we see a blue rectangular box with light-blue part on the bottom with "SOFTWARE INC." spaced-out in a Futura condensed font, on it. Above it is "DEVELOPED BY" in a Badloc ICG font. Then the word "Sculptured" in a script font that almost looks similar to Mistral in italic, wipes in from the left with white light-rays traveling through it. Then the red blood-like underline wipes in from the right under "Sculptured" with red light through the screen, forming the logo.

Trivia: The animation of the logo was done by Peter Jensen.

  • On Sega Genesis version of SeaQuest DSV, the logo appears in a static wave-like transition. Plus, "DEVELOPED BY" is spaced above a little and "Sculptured" is white.
  • On Dirt Trax FX, a still image of the logo appears with a copyright notice. Plus the copyright information explodes shattering through us.

Logo: We see the previous logo, which now is in 3D style this time and has a spotlight effect, but with some differences. The word "SOFTWARE INC." is in white and in a different font, the "Sculptured" script along with a red underline are drawn better and more detailed, the text part has it's shadow behind them, the red line is behind "Sculptured" instead of in front and the bottom part of the rectangle is now gray. Plus, "DEVELOPED BY" is absent.

Variant: On Genesis and 32X versions of WWF Wrestlemania: The Arcade Game, the light is not on the red line. Probably because of the color limit.

FX/SFX: None.

Nicknames: "The 3D Logo II", "The Laser-Beveling Logo"

Logo: We see a blue textured stone and the two lasers are carving it to make it a rectangle shape. After it finishes, the rest of it zooms out leaving only the rectangle part while it flips vertically once at the same time. Then the word "Sculptured" in it's same corporate font from before appears zooming out rotating with gold light trails, hitting the rectangle, followed by the red line also rotating, but in the opposite angle and withred light trails
and places itself under "Sculptured". Then the bottom gray textured part zooms out from the bottom of the screen covering the bottom part of the blue rectangle. Immediately after that,the words, "SOFTWARE INC." zooms out letter-by-letter and onto the part with a fire explosion from each letter after hitting it, forming the logo.

FX/SFX: CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: No music, but mostly the sound the effects of the laser when carving the rectangle, the whooshes (which are the same ones from the Acclaim logo variant of the game) as Sculptured and the red line zoom out, and the fire boom SFX when SOFTWARE INC. hits the logo.
