I've been looking for officially released wallpapers for some of my favorite games.

I felt it was the most fitting to start a topic here. Please post whatever you have.

If the wallpaper was distributed freely I don't think there is an issue here. Especially since it is not the wallpaper is being sold. These are essentially promotional images. 🤣

C&C Gold and RA1 both came with complete theme packs not just wallpaper's, I think Tiberian Sun did as well?

All 3 were made freeware and can be downloaded here if you want the "complete desktop experience"

Remember folks, this is NOT just a Command and Conquer thread. This is an 'Officially Released Video Game Wallpapers' thread.
So feel free to contribute.

Or maybe we should drop the "official" and make it a 'General Retro Games Wallpaper' thread?

I don't like mass image posting (especially if they're 1280x1024x24 lossless BMPs from 2000), so I can probably just link this reddit thread of a certain official wallpaper collection of a certain game.

Check out Brad Custer's Wallpaper page on Inside Mac Games:

Oh wow. This is really great.

Too bad some of them have the Mac logo on them. I'm not really into Macs. I suppose I could do some erasing in Photoshop.

Back around 2003 the West Brothers had a site touting West Racing and their Racing Legends project. I am not aware that the project ever actually produced a working software product, but they did release a couple of cool Lotus wallpapers at one point (scroll down a bit from the top of the page and you will find 1600x1200 and 1024x768 versions):

As you can see from the aero devices, the model is post-Grand Prix Legends. For its time, it was a remarkably detailed model.
