Rocket League is a cross-platform video game that first came out in 2015. It is a sequel to the hit 2008 PlayStation 3 game Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars. It was developed and published by Psyonix.
Meaning and History
This computer game combines several themes at once – high-speed car racing and sports competitions in football, basketball, or hockey (the latter two have appeared recently). Two teams of eight gamers each compete in it. All have their own “rocket” machines, which need to score goals into the opponent’s goal. In this way, the groups gain points in the time allotted for the match.
The video game consists of multiplayer and single-player modes with online and local gaming. There is also the possibility of online competitions between any cross-platform versions. There are functions for adjusting the basic rules in more recent versions and adding new modes, including hockey and basketball.
The emblem is the same and applies to all types of platforms for personal computers and game consoles. Rocket League is developed for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation, Xbox, macOS, Nintendo, and Linux. The releases were released gradually for three years in a row – starting in 2015 and ending in 2017. In September 2020, the game appeared in a free-to-play modification.
Moreover, the developers focused on visual elements, which are large in the game. This principle was reflected in the logo as well, because Psyonix paid great attention to graphic symbols, simultaneously using several brand names – for gaming and printing.
Font and Colors of the Emblem
She combines graphics and text with an emphasis on identity and difference at the same time. They relate to the logo’s design so that each situation has its version that does not run counter to the main sign. As a result, there are three designs.
The general arrangement is the arrangement of elements: picture on the left, text on the right. The first depicts a racing car with large wheels. It has been worked out in detail, down to the smallest detail, to give the impression that this is a real sports car. Behind her stretches a train of two stripes, which, according to the idea, convey movement, dynamics, drive. There is a ball in front of the car, abstracted from a specific sport – it is smooth, monochromatic, with a glare of light.
The background is a triangular coat of arms to create a strong association with the sports theme because it is included in most teams’ emblems. The top left corner replaces the silvery ball, with a thin white curved line crossing the bottom edge. On the right side of the sign is the name of a computer game, made in large bold letters in a brutal style. In all versions of the emblem, they are black.
The name is written in a geometric chopped typeface that closely resembles Futura ExtraBold. The only replacement is the letter “G.” All other signs are identical. Designer Paul Renner created this font in 1927. The icon’s color palette is quite varied and consists of a blue shield with white elements and a gray ball.
