Amaze Entertainment

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Amaze Entertainment was a studio originally founded in 1996 as KnowWonder, then renamed in 2001, and was acquired by Foundation 9 Entertainment in 2006, which was eventually followed with the integration into Griptonite Games. Since July 2009, the Amaze name and logo are no longer used. From 2001 to 2005, it used such branding as Griptonite Games for the handheld unit, Adrenium Games for the console unit, KnowWonder for the PC unit, The Fizz Factor for the Austin operation, and Black Ship Games, a unit devoted for Japanese-based talent.

Logo (2005-June 9, 2009)

Visuals: There is the word "AMAZE" in a bold font with all of its letters connected to each other. Underneath it is the word "ENTERTAINMENT" stretched to the width of "AMAZE". The background is black and the letters are white, or vice-versa.
