Touchstone Games was a short-lived publishing brand of Disney Interactive Studios. Like its namesake, it was intended to release mature or non-family games. It was launched in 2007, but after releasing only one game in America and distributing another overseas, Disney quickly shut it down.
1st Logo (June 8, 2007)
Logo: On a white background, we see the Touchstone thunderball logo, but in silver blue, with the word "Touchstone" below. At the bottom-right corner of "Touchstone" is the text "(C) Touchstone".
Availability: Seen only on the European version of Anno 1701: Dawn of Discovery for the Nintendo DS; the American version was released by Ubisoft.
2nd Logo (February 5, 2008)
Logo: On a black background, we see a spot of blue light revealing the re-designed Touchstone thunderball logo from before. The logo shines.
Technique: The light effects and the logo shining.
Music/Sounds: A whoosh sound, followed by some piano notes.
Availability: Rare. It's only seen on the 2008 version of Turok for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
Legacy: While this logo is simple, it's also pretty nicely animated and designed. It would be interesting to see how this logo would be used if Disney didn't quickly shut the label down.
