Icon Electric Sheep 3.0.2

This software owes its name to Philip K. Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. It realizes the collective dream of sleeping computers from all over the internet.
When the screen-saver is activated, the screen goes black and an animated 'sheep' appears. Behind the scenes, the screen-saver contacts a server and joins the parallel computation of new sheep. Every fifteen minutes 24/7 a new sheep is born and distributed to all clients for display. Each sheep is an animated fractal flame.
This program is recommended only if you have a high-bandwidth, always-on connection to the internet such as DSL or cable modem. For best results, let it run overnight to collect a whole flock. Laptop users might have to adjust their power settings to accomplish this.

Icon LotsaSnow 1.6

This screensaver draws snowflakes falling down your screen. Simple enough, but the oh-so-clever part is that it uses a semi-physical model for growing each snowflake, meaning every snowflake is actually unique, and also that it uses a quite a bit of processing power. But that's the price you pay for indivduality!

Icon PongSaver 2.1.1

When the game begins, the score is set to the current time. The left side's score is the current hour (in 24-hour time), and the right side's score is the current minute. Then, the right side scores about once a minute to keep up with the real clock. When it gets to 59, the next score makes it wrap around to 00, and the left side will score shortly afterwards to bring the hour forward. At midnight, left's score wraps around to 00.

Icon RainingCubes 1.0

RainingCubes is a screen saver for OS X that animates anywhere from one to thousands of multi-colored cubes doing what cubes do when they have no surface beneath them, and the force of gravity is applied to them.
That might not be too interesting on its own, but RainingCubes is the first screen saver for OS X that does its drawing using the new Metal 3D drawing API in OS X 10.11 (El Capitan). RainingCubes draws at a constant 60 FPS, supports Retina displays, supports optional FSAA (full-screen anti-aliasing), and by default draws using your Mac’s low-power GPU (if present) in order to conserve energy.
RainingCubes requires OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) or later, as well as a computer that supports the Metal API. That ought to include all Macs made in mid-2012 and later.

And the feedback I've had has been amazing! I've had literally 100s of emails from people saying this is now their favourite aquarium screen saver. With so much competition, that's pretty high praise!

icon 3D Desktop Butterflies 1.2

I spent ages trying to make them actually fly like butterflies. Sort of random and fluttery. When I looked at a couple of other butterfly screen savers they all flew in a very basic "flap... flap... flap" fashion which made them look like a wind up aeroplane kinda deal. Still not sure I've got it quite right, but I do think it's cool to watch. And the way they land on both the desktop and the "glass" of your monitor I think looks nice too. I dunno, I just like it!
