Background Information

The Aberrant logo consists of two elements: the blocky outer part and a messy, scribbed inner part. This inner portion was used during initial advertising for Aberrant, as far back as 1997's Trinity release. The center of the two R's were replaced by the number 9, forming a 99, letting purchasers know the year Aberrant was supposed to come out.

If you look closely at the Aberrant logo, you can see the 99 is still there.
