In December 2009, Vectrix, inc. was created as a solo company to match NextGen Games, inc. (a now defunct company), but back then their was little tie-in with NextGen, and if you looked at the names, you would not even think of them being related in any way.
That's why, a year later, Vectrix was renamed NextGen Solo, to highlight the fact that the company made games like NextGen, but with only one person behind them. However, due to a community split even before the renaming of Vectrix, and the fact that this particular person behind "Solo's" games began to fill all the spots (story, artwork, etc.) quite well, NextGen Games, inc. became unactive and recently defunct.
Keeping the name, NextGen Solo got a logo redesign in April 2011, erasing the "part of NextGen Games" tagline and also having a younger look to it, young and refreshing at that.
But the younger-looking logo was replaced in August 2011 by a logo that kept the blue & green colors associated with the new one, but is stylized more like the original. Another interesting note is that the 6 boxes on the logo have the colors of Fantendo:Help's core 6 boxes, Fantendo:Help itself being a project that DK started.
Later on 2011, NextGen Solo joined the Fusion Entertainment company.
In December 2011, the logo was given a minor update with the new, more tempered Fantendo:Help colors, along with a new blue color for the box containing the words "NextGen Solo", now properly capitalized.
Early May 2012, the logo was updated once again with updated colors, the new design of the Fantendo:Help boxes, and a glow/shadow effect. Also, as of that month, games developed by NextGen Solo will only show the 6 boxes on their boxarts, as they are easier to resize and position.
In October 2012, the logo was updated to reflect NextGen's new logo style. Rumors are circulating that this may be the last iteration of the logo.
- The boxarts for the Nextablet and new Bluevolt lines had the word "licensed" misspelled as "liscensed." In April 2012, the spelling was fixed.
