Meaning and history

Osu! Logo history

Osu! – is a free music rhythm game written in C# in 2007. The gameplay is similar to such popular games as Tatakae! And Ouendan. The goal of the game is to create a musical rhythm by writing on colored circles on the screen. Osu! is the creation of one man, Dean “Peppy” Herbert. The first version of the game was available only for Windows, but today the developer offers Osu! for all mobile platforms.

As for the mechanics of the game, it is very simple. It’s a simple rhythm game with only a few basic elements. The first is the Cirlie, simply click on them when the field around them converges, and the print makes a sound. The second element is the Slider, which consists of a mug, and a small track along which it must be passed to extract the sound. And the third element is the Spinner, which you have to spin.

What is Osu!?

The original Osu! logo, designed with the release of the game in 2007, has stayed untouched for more than eight years. It was a glossy tender-pink roundel with gradients going darker from top to bottom, and a white lowercase lettering with the name of the game, set in a lightweight sans-serif typeface. The simple badge looked like sugar candy.

2015 – Today

With the redesign of 2015, the Osu! logo got refined and emboldened. Even though the color combination was kept the same, pink and white, the shades of pink became deeper and brighter. As for the white lettering, its typeface was changed to a heavier and more modern sans-serif. Another change was made to the pink roundel, as now it got enclosed into a pretty thick white frame. The pink background of the logo got some darker ornaments all over.
