Visuals: There is a symbol that resembles the letter A with its left part cut out to resemble "i", forming "iA".

Technique: Sprite-based graphic.

Audio: None.

Availability: It was used more often as easter egg. Seen on some earliest games, such as Tom Risk and Radar Wars Gold.

2nd Logo (1994)

Visuals: On the black background is a stone plaque with the yellow-red brush-painted "iA" and the stacked words "INTERACTION software" in the Handel Gothic font below. The screen fades to black, and the fuchsia-blue word "presents" in the Freestyle Script font.

Technique: Fading effects.

Audio: A triumphant fanfare.

Availability: Seen on games developed using the first version of their VGA Engine, like BattleTank.

3rd Logo (1995-1998)
