As leileilol said, 'not a well preserved genre'. While I can remember when it seemed nearly everything had a screensaver or two dedicated to it, nothing has survived in my collection. If anyone still has classic game screensavers, please share. If it's copyright-encumbered, a pic or vid would be nice.

The SimCity 2000 desktop theme came with a pretty neat screensaver that would automatically draw a city all over your screen. (It could even use SCURK tilesets.)

Origin FX also comes to mind.

Nice topic. There was a really nice wallpaper/screensaver pack for Diablo 1, but I can't find it anymore. Back in the days you could find a bunch of wallpaper/screensaver packs on computer related magazine CDs.

I know its not game-oriented, but this has to be posted due to the time-era and fans of MST3K....

Anyone remember Torgo from MST3K's episode of Manos: The Hands of Fate? If you do, right now you'll be hearing the theme music in your heard...and shaking your head in disbelief with a little laughter that this bit of retroness has come back to haunt you. 😎

Here's the Windows 3.1 scr file for Torgo...he'll walk around your desktop with the theme music playing in the background. 😎

Kent from normality walking your screen, giving various comments. Had this on a demo-CD in the 90's

You bet your head from AfterDark For Win3.1x/Win95 is one of my favorite Game-that-Is-A-Screensaver dealies.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2lzRy7QbU8k

I might need to come here after hours and grab some of this stuff for the 486 DX2! Especially the LucasArts stuff, might go good with my 256 color Yoda desktop wallpaper.

Lunatic Fringe from After Dark is one I remember fondly. Although I'm positive I played it on Windows and not a Mac, unless I'm thinking of a different space shooter game included with After Dark... 😕

Almost forgotten, this was one of the best things to leave on the screen while you zone out. Highly recommended, and splendidly nostalgic for the early coin-op driving games.

Not game-based, but very entertaining ones would be Johnny Castaway (Screen Antics) and Disney AfterDark. AD was the first Windows app I've installed on my new old computer. 😀
