Deep Silver

From Audiovisual Identity Database

Background

Deep Silver is a publishing label of German-Austrian game company Koch Media created in 2002. Their parent company was acquired by THQ Nordic in February 2018.

1st Logo (May 2, 2003-April 8, 2011)

Logo: We see a beaming blue light, and multiple letters fly beyond to form the name "DEEP SILVER". Before they complete, a dark form appears over the light source, whirls and becomes silver, showing a triskelion (a three-end solstice figure) with a light 3D effect. The company's name is also silver, and the "E" letters lack their middle vertical parts.

Variant: There is a different animated version where the logo blasts the screen.

Technique: The logo forming.

Music/Sounds: A mild whoosh.

Availability: Common.


2nd Logo (September 6, 2011-May 10, 2019)

Logo: On a dark background, the camera is panning over a big silvery crystal that's breaking off, revealing the triskelion from before, now inside a box. The company name, with "DEEP" stacked over "SILVER", is below the box, and all of this is surrounded by a rectangular border. All of this rotates to face the camera.

Variants:

  • On The Dark Eye, the logo is seen over a sepia-paper background.
  • A color-reversed version exists.
  • Before 2013, this logo was either still, or was just zooming in.
  • On Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell (2015), the logo appears over a fiery background with flying sparks and looks rusted.

Technique: The crystal breaking and the logo rotating to face the screen. For the early version, just the logo zooming towards the screen or none.

Music/Sounds: Sounds of crushing and a short low-pitched beeping tone.

Availability: No longer current. Appeared on Risen 2 and appeared on other games from the company until 2019, when they unveiled a new logo. The variants can be seen on The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav and Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell. One of the last releases to have this logo is the 2019 release of Saints Row The Third - The Full Package for the Switch.
