You'd Better Get Kraken For EarthBound Screensaver

EarthBoundMicrosoft Windows comes with some particularly boring screensavers.  It's all 3D Pipes this and Mystify that.  Isn't it time for you to give your PC's screensavers list the gift of EarthBound?  Behold the magic of Kraken, a free Windows screensaver courtesy of Starmen.net that approximates the trippy battle backgrounds from Nintendo's RPG cult classic.

Basically, it’s a Windows screensaver that can display various battle animations from EarthBound. You can choose which animations to display in its configuration options, along with a few other tweaks like framerate and aspect ratio. Currently it only displays one animation at a time, but I might add a “cycle between animations” option if enough people are interested.

You can't go wrong with an EarthBound screensaver.  I've been enjoying it for about a week now, although the few people that I've shown it too all say that the motion of the warped colors makes them nauseous.  None of these people have ever played EarthBound though, so I really think that this is one of those things that only the right people will get.  So, in the end, I suppose you either get nauseous or you get Kraken.
