Stars of the Screen

Stars of the Screen

Made by Mouflon Cloud

Stars of the Screen hides something in its miniature tributes to screensavers and games. Can you find it? It might be a control scheme. It might be a game. It might be a joke. It might be a tear in the corner of your eye. It might be a message. Only you can find it! (Besides all the others who play the game, sure.)

Top Player Goals

  1. Gain muscle mass while loading new levels with the crank! (In your face, SSDs!)
  2. Enjoy just the best part of Solitaire!
  3. Watch screensavers for extended time (specifically the DVD one) and smile wistfully, thinking of the Stereo Dock!
  4. Drive that bus!
  5. Enjoy freshly ground coffee, perhaps from Saturn Valley beans?
  6. Visit a haunted mansion!
  7. Install software from infinite floppies just like in the old days!
  8. Mash buttons and then stop and proceed to pressing them methodically! (That’s a pro tip.)
  9. Find out what’s invisible to the eyes... at least at first.
