Russobit-M was a Russian company based in Moscow that was founded on September 8, 1999. It was one of the biggest game publishers, developers and localisers in Russia. In 2012, they stopped their activity in the game industry and became a company which distributed tablet PCs. The company finally ceased its operations on April 15, 2013.

1st Logo (October 8, 2001-2012)

Visuals: A streak of light comes in and reveals "Русс бит-М" (instead of "О", there is a stylized disc-musical note combo that forms rounded rectangle between "Русс" and "бит-М"). "ПРОЕКТ-МУЛЬТИМЕДИА" flies underneath the words and the shape.

Variant: There is a still version also used on the covers. "ПРОЕКТ МУЛЬТИМЕДИА" can be replaced with the website sometimes.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: A squealing whoosh ("Ancient Mind" off Spectrasonics' Distorted Reality 1 sample CD) followed by a pulsing chord when the streak comes, followed by a glass shard-like noise mixed with a UFO-ish sweep ("Glass Bender" and "Saucers", both off the aforementioned Distorted Reality 1 sample CD) when the words underneath come.

Availability: First seen on Venom. Codename: Outbreak. Seen on most of the games that Russobit-M has localised and/or published.

2nd Logo (early 2000s?-August 25, 2003)

Visuals: On a black background with an "old film effect", white outlines draw the outlines of the same logo as before (but it's also in English: "Russ(o)bit-M" and "MULTIMEDIA-PROJECT" (it shines a few times). The logo disappears, and then it reappears with a white glow behind it in color. The glowing disappears. The website address appears in the bottom right corner.

Technique: 2D computer animation.

Audio: A majestic tune (which sounds like a mix of a majestic fanfare and a march) that has been cheaply looped.

Availablity: Seen on several educational games of the period and the Russian localisation of Chaser (2003).
