Stephen’s Screensavers

I make screensaver modules for fun and for self expression. The screensavers on this page all work with the Macintosh Classic version of After Dark, and with several After Dark compatible screensavers. If you don’t have a Mac, you can still look at pictures by clicking the thumbnails, and you can check out the Web version of Mindzeit!

Sierra has discontinued After Dark, but sometimes you can still find a used copy for sale. If you don’t have After Dark or you have Mac OS9 or OSX and After Dark doesn’t work for you, try the shareware DarkSide of the Macintosh or the old Underware demo.

Winner 2nd Place Programmer

Mindzeit brings to life an endless variety of hypnotic animations. Well, not quite endless. Actually, there’s just over a billion of them. Mindzeit makes them. You watch them. They’re very cool! Mindzeit is Copyright 1994-1999 by Stephen Linhart. This version (2.0) is Freeware. It needs After Dark for Macintosh. - 104K Download

I also made a Web version which won the Apple Quicktime Web Challenge award for Business Merit. Check it out!

This is the same screensaver formerly known as Mind’s Eye. I changed the name at the request of Steven Churchill, producer of the film The Mind’s Eye.
