"Step away from the monitor, sonny."

The id Software ASCII logo

The last product of many hours of manual typing and tweaking is my ASCII version of the id Software logo. I created this back in December 1995, but didn't have any good use for it, so it just sat on my hard drive. I figure the fifth anniversary of the game that made id Software truly the leader in 3D action games is a good occasion to finally publish it.

Legal bit: Unlike (initially) the DOOM logo, this ASCII logo can be freely used in electronic media, provided it's noted that the id logo is trademarked by id Software (as usual) and the ASCII version was created by Frans P. de Vries. Use of the ASCII logo in non-electronic media is not allowed without written permission of the author. You are not allowed to make changes to this ASCII logo under any condition.

A link to this page (http://www.gamers.org/~fpv/idlogo.html) would be appreciated. I would also be interested to learn about any good uses for the ASCII logo, and may even link back to your page if I like it enough :-)

And now, without further ado, here is the id Software ASCII logo:
