This page collects logos that have been used on the site over the years, both the special yearly Christmas logos as well as the numerous main logo variations that have been used.
The Christmas 2001 logo.
It's Christmas ... 2002!
A well designed Christmas logo for 2003, unlike 2002.
Christmas version of the most recent logo, shown briefly in Dec 2004.
A nicely patterned Christmas logo from 2005.
2006's Christmas logo, featuring Santa from Super Speed Christmas Edition.
The Christmas 2007 logo. Features Jazz Jackrabbit from Jazz Jackrabbit Holiday Hare 95.
Whee, it's the Christmas 2008 logo. I went for a simpler, more retro-pixelated look this year. The little guys are of course Santa lemmings from Holiday Lemmings.
The Christmas 2009 logo. Features rocket Santa from the Jetpack Christmas Special game's title screen.
Here's the DOSGames.com 2010 Christmas logo, featuring a very cold Jill of the Jungle wearing a cheezy Santa hat. :)
Carrying on the 10 year tradition, here's the DOSGames.com 2011 Christmas logo, featuring several DOS game characters. How many can you identify? :)
The Christmas 2012 logo features Sint Nicolaas from the Sint Nicolaas game here created by Mike Wiering of Wiering Software!
The 2013 logo, painstakingly constructed from elements from the Commander Keen series of games, took quite awhile to construct but I think the effect is worth it. :) Original size and double size versions available. Download the free Keen games here. Also check out the Commander Keen History at 3D Realms.
Less inspired than the previous year, this simple blue-background logo for 2014 features the Christmas tree from D/Generation (it only appears if you play the game near Christmas!) and of course one of the Vorticons from the Commander Keen games.
Going old-old school with ASCII characters only for 2015!
The 2016 logo again goes with an ASCII character theme, this time a simple tree and plain black background. Classy.
Rather than creating an entirely new logo, 2017's logo simply reskins the classic DOSGames.com text and adds a pixelated present and holiday message.
Main site logos
The oldest one I could find.
I think I used Microsoft Word Wordart to make this back in Jan 1999.
Another really old one, used for awhile in 1999.
This would've been made using Xara Webstyle.
Not sure if I ever used this one, but it looks alright. Last from 1999.
An inappropriate font, I'd say. Earliest from 2000 probably.
This one was around for a long time if memory serves me ...
Bland ... not much else to say.
Started to be used sometime in 2001.
This one was used for a long time in/around 2002.
Still looks decent, one of my favorites. From 2003.
The current logo. I think it looks good so I have no real reason to change it :) It's been the site logo since 2004.
Years ago dosgames.com gave out free email addresses ... every day emails are still probably sent to those old long deleted accounts.
Ugly/unused prototype logos
Really early 1999 ... don't think I ever actually used this one.
Ummm ... no.
A failed attempt at a new look using a premade Photoshop action.
I was going to redesign the whole site back in late 2003, and this was going to be the new logo.
The redesign never happened of course. ;)
