1st Logo (1990-1992)

Logo: On a black background, several green triangles are seen in the middle of the screen, arranged to read as "SiMiS". The "i"'s are also topped with dots. Bordering it is the white text "A" and "PRODUCTION".

Variant: On AV-8B Harrier Assault, the logo is tucked into the top left corner, placed on a stone plate. Below it is 2 lines bordering the text "SIMIS LTD".

Technique: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Seen on the company's earliest games.

2nd Logo (1997-2000)

Logo: On a black background, a red light appears and slides across the screen, causing the text "SIMIS" in silver lettering, to fold out one-by-one with a brief red glow. The logo then shines brightly as a spotlight scans the screen from left to right before dying down.


  • On Terracide, the first game to use this, a prototype is used. The background is filled with green smoke, the spark is green and moves slower, and when the logo finishes, it flashes and brings forth a teal box with dark blue afterimages of the text on it.
  • On the Terracide demo, a still version of the logo is used.

Technique: The spark moves and reveals the letters.

Music/Sounds: A pair of synth drones that are held-out.

Availability: Seen on Terracide, Team Apache and Xenocracy.
