Sierra FX

From Audiovisual Identity Database

Background

Sierra FX was formed in February 1998 by Sierra On-Line as part of a company restructuring, and was intented to be used as a label for Sierra to continue production on their graphic adventure games, although the company planned to use it for online games as well. Unlike the other labels, Sierra FX was based at Sierra's old headquarters in Oakhurst, which was publicly referred to as Yosemite Entertainment.

In 1999, as part of a major restructuring, Sierra On-Line closed down Yosemite and ceased the production of their adventure games, retiring the Sierra FX brand.

(July 11-December 7, 1998)

Logo: On a black background, a blue light shines as the letters of the then-current Sierra Entertainment logo swirl around inside it. As they get closer together, the light brightens before forming a glare. The Sierra FX logo, which is the 1998 Sierra logo with blue spikes and "FX" in a black connected font with a blue glow, appears as a light passes behind it.

Technique: The fragments flying and shining.

Music/Sounds: A mystic synth tune with a strange flute when the logo appears.

Availability: Only appeared on Police Quest: SWAT 2 and Quest for Glory V, the only two titles released under the Yosemite Entertainment development label.
