The EasyRPG logo at startup is good and should be kept, as it clearly brands the application.

However, there are some minor flaws:

  • The colors of the text logo are too dark
  • The URL does not contain the s for secure access and has an additional, unneeded slash / at the end

Here is the current logo (as everybody knows it 😀):
oldlogo
I actually had to write an unxxd tool to extract it from source as-is.

And here is a quick mockup to address both issues:

Do not mind the realignment, it was for testing purposes. Also the font may be a bit too big in comparison.

About the URL: Maybe drop the http:// or https:// altogether?
web: easy-rpg.org
About the two logos: Maybe drop the text logo and just use a fullscreen logo?

Here is another mockup:

If we're going to be pedantic, shouldn't we maintain the / at the end? I vote to remote the protocol prefix altogether.

The mockup I like the most is:

Btw, I'm interested in 640x480 versions of these logos.

I'm actually a fan of the original logo ;)

Otherwise I vote for the first mockup but the easy text is too bright. And https:// is not needed.

As an alternative: Use the original logo and remove the URL (it is displayed in the about tab of the game browser anyway.
And use the gained space to make the icon better :)

A text prefix like "Powered by [logo]" might be useful.
What about black background?

I agree with Ghabry : displaying the URL is kind of useless for a lot a reasons

Recompress the logo with zopfli and add the png.
Also use an own header file to make the logo scene more readable.
