1st Logo (1991-2002)
Logo: A reddish flash occurs, morphing into the logo, which is crudely drawn word "REBELLiON" with a line below.
Trivia: The logo itself bears resemblance to the logo for Solidarity (Solidarność), a Polish trade union, designed by Jerzy Janiszewski.
Variants: There are several variations. On Gunlok, the logo is revealed by the blue cloud of flame. Sometimes it's still.
Technique: 2D animation.
Music/Sounds: Heavy shine sound.
Availability: Seen on The Mummy and Aliens vs Predator of the era.
2nd Logo (2003-2006)
Logo: We see the complete logo. Suddenly it begins to crack at the left side and breaks into pieces of wood, carried away to the right.
Variant: On Gunfighter II, the old projector effect was used instead.
Music/Sounds: Cracking and whizzing sounds.
Availability: Common on the games like Judge Dredd, Sniper Elite and AvP: Requiem.
3rd Logo (2007-)
Logo: The complete logo appears. Then it starts to fray at both sides, white-hot fragments flying directly at us until the whole logo is destroyed.
