Logo: A commander from the game walks in carrying a red block to a wall of red and black blocks. He pushes the block in a space and rests in exhaust. We pan around the wall to see that the blocks make the Pyro Studios logo, looking like a voxel-art creation. The text is in black and "S T U D I O S" is in red.

Technique: The commander's movements, the pan.

Pyro Studios + Ilion Animation Studios (2009) (Taken from Planet 51 - The Game, NDS).png

Logo: On a white background, we see Rover from Planet 51 in the distance moving when suddenly a rock falls and he notices it. He goes near it and picks it up, analyzing it. He puts it away and looks around when he surprising notices something. We pan around and we see the Pyro Studios logo without the flame. He scans it, becoming more flat, and he rolls away.
