    I think the change is good for the brand.

    I don’t think this results in a loss of history, rather a division, a seperation from then and now. It would be naive to pretend things are the same since GM’s creation, and I think a logo change represents how far the product has come, whether you like yoyo or not.

    I still think the main hammer and red ball thing should be kept, just looking a bit better and with a bit of decoration. Although, this doesn’t seem to match Sandy’s opinion, looking at the glog comments…

  9. Flumble says:

    A new logo for GM is like a new flag for a country – you lose a part of (if not all) of its history and familiarity. (That is, if the new one misses out its hammer and ball.)

    I’d recommend to just leave it as it is, but hey, who am I against a profit-based commercial company?

  10. Broxter says:

    Sounds like fun. There is a lot of talent out there; I’m glad that Sandy recognises this, even if you could say it’s a little lazy.

    Mark did GameMaker for profit too you do realize?
