Well, that's their opinion. It's neither true or false. If they are not really satisfied with the logo, that's their problem. However, if it just so happens that majority isn't happy with the logo, I think this is a fine time for you to do some changes.

...and hopefully, there won't be any sort of "Evolution of Logos" coming around by the time I get my degree. Lol

@Blink: At what point does it not become memorable? Kindly explain.

Mm, aye, I think even if there're changes the design will still remain to keep the consistency (bird will still be F).

I think Blink meant that it's not memorable because it's hard to recognize that the bird is an F at first glance, which is a concern -- I've had people thinking that we were the "Ree Birds" before. :P Maybe I should get the reebirdgames.com domain, hahah.

Don't change it. I like it and I'm very used to it.  :)

I didn't have a problem seeing the bird as an F the first time I saw it.

I say it's fine. Maybe they are referring to the little teal swirls—they sometimes make my head go screwy—but nothing major is wrong with it. :salbrow: I like it. :vikonsmile:

I'm no professional, but the logo is simple and works really well for me. And as for those who said it's awful... well, if it's that obvious that it's awful, I'm definitely not seeing it. They should at least mention what's awful about it.

While the current logo isn't bad, it does seem to lack a bit of professionalism with its simplistic design.

Hm aye, I think eventually we'll switch to one that's of the same design concept, but done by a pro.

You're not a pro? :O
On the so-called "other sources", is the majority that disagrees with the logo? (In my opinion, I thought the logo was cool enough like that.)

I'm faaarrr from a pro artist. :P And hm, naw, I don't think the majority disagrees with the logo; I just saw it being brought up a couple of times and thought it was worth some consideration. But it seems like it's not a dominating opinion or anything, so I'll leave it be for now (and eventually change to one that's more refined, but of the same design).

@Merlan: Ah, that's good; it'll be an easy fix if we keep the sky.

Visuals are so good. But I would recommend Freebird Games to change their logo. Sorry but it is awful.
The comment did get 3 thumbs up, so perhaps there's something worth considering.
Rule of the internet, Reives, any accusation with no coherent argument is invalid. People will thumb up anything if they feel like it and they will also likely thumb anything that has already been thumbed up (see YouTube's "X haters [verb]" which dominate most videos).

Now I'm not saying that whoever said the "logo was awful" was wrong. I mean if he has something to say, then do say ALL. Nobody can really do anything if X sucks but Y reason is not provided. The guy who posted that comment may have valid reasons to say so why the logo is "awful" but he chose not to, making the comment I dunno, near useless?

Man1: Hey, look at this.
Man2: Hey, that's good. But this particular part sucks.
Man1: Why?
*Man2 leaves*

At this point, assuming the guy had reasons why, we can only assume what may need improvements in the logo. Could it be the F-bird? The font? The colors? (Don't ask me about that, I'm colorblind lol) The two 90-degree parentheses that encompass the entire logotype?

P.S. A dynamic game-specific logo wouldn't be bad. Similar to how Electronic Arts does it.

Hello.

Reives..Nice enough logo that one is. Maybe even perfectly suits a logo representing RPG games

:-)

@Question: Hm, aye, though I suppose I could try to ask him about it. But ack, with this much to do I'll probably have to worry about the logo at least after TtM is released anyway. o: A game-specific logo's an interesting idea! Probably revolving around the same theme, but with different little touches (e.g. a lighthouse for To the Moon).

@Sobri: Thanks for the vote of confidence!
