A downloadable screensaver for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Midnight Bonfire

Made for #screensaverjam in Amulet. My first foray into Lua really, so a lot of messing around.

There is a browser embed here, but it most likely will crash the tab in Chromium (Chrome, Opera). It'll work slowly on Edge and full speed on Firefox. At least as far as I can tell. I'm probably just using way too many particles. Sorry!

Non-interactive. Hit F to change between fullscreen and windowed. Hit Escape to exit. Should work in most aspect ratios but it'll look weird in fullscreen on vertical monitors. Sorry!

S/o to Pixabay for the trees and logs.

Let me know @orbicube on Twitter if it breaks for you. Or if it works! Not sure how much I'll be able to help you but hey.

Install instructions

Run whatever executables are there. Should just work! Hopefully! Let me know if it doesn't

Lack of audio aside, this was a pleasant little thing you made. I used it in a New Year's video.
