Why is it called Shapeshift? Shapeshift relies on P3D's Shape system which includes Tris, Quads, Boxes, Spheres, and Cylinders. Shift can be used as another word for Move. Since the program is all about Moving, Rotating, and Scaling P3D's Shapes which can be a variety of different basic types the name Shapeshift seemed appropriate.
What's the Logo? It's a Circle and a Square with a dividing line between them. A Circle Shapeshifting into a Square. It's not any more or less complex than that.
What's the dog character in Shapeshift? That's Shift, they're intended to be the Mascot of the Program but didn't see much use outside of being an Indicator for 0, 0, 0.
