A downloadable package

These are some retro-style screensavers that I made for fun a while back.

Windows Defender, or other anti-virus software, may detect the screensavers as harmful software. They aren't viruses, I swear. The source code for every screensaver is included in the package if you want to check for yourself and/or make your own modifications.

These screensavers were designed for use with Windows. They have not been tested on other operating systems, and are unlikely to work with them.
