CEO Sandy Duncan has offered a first look at the brand new company logo for YoYo Games, the creators of the popular GameMaker Studio game development engine.

 

The new logo features a modern, minimalistic, and professional design. A subtle abstraction integrates the characters “YY” to form the shape of a yoyo. The logo is entirely gray-scale, with the exception of the company’s signature green note. Check out the new YoYo Games logo below.

Hmm, looks sterile and boring. I think a company that is all about game creation should have something a bit more fun looking.

It seems like they're trying to make themselves look more professional and I suppose that might appeal to some. Not me though.

Very nice. It looks professional, and its subtle but well conceived. Couldn't agree with the above post less.

I agree. I'm personally a huge fan of the minimalist look, and YoYo have pulled it off beautifully. This is the most professional that YoYo's brand has looked thus far.

Yup, but I bet that guy who just got his YoYoGames Tatoo done isn't going to be happy.

It was a GM:S tattoo actually.

I think it's a great step forward, however with a critical eye, I think it sits a little bland against the grey and could use with some 'popping' like the following:

Just my thoughts :) Either way, love the new design!

Looks like I'm the odd one out.
I always seem to have different tastes than the majority. Oh well.

I think the design is great. It actually looks very clean and professional on the main site.

I give it a thumbs up.  :thumbsup:

I like it although I do like better the setup on your facebook page cover where the text is in two lines, :)

I have to say, I didn't care about this logo (note I didn't say care for) when I read this when it was posted, er, a few hours ago--but now with the logo at the top left of the forum I have to say it looks quite nice.

...but now the main website font doesn't match the logo ;o It needs to be a thinner sans-serif, like Arial/Tahoma or something.

Looks great on the YYG and GMC websites. It's a very contemporary design.

I like how the pair of inverted letters form an interior circle. It's slightly reminiscent of the old cog design. That's a clever way to show a connection to past logos.

I love it, THIS is the logo YYG needed, not the old 3d-ish gears! now I hope they change the old bold font for the new thinner one quickly, that would be great :)

The Yoyo logo never had gears. Just the GM one.
