Who is as old as I am and remembers this ?
As I learned thru youtube there was actually a story built into that screen saver. As it played scenes randomly people never got to see the entire story, but someone compiled it and published the story on youtube as well: "Johnny Castaway: The story! "
Interesting comments can be found in youtube for the latter video, like
|I remember watching this on my computer when I was a child. I would wait for the computer to go to screen saver and watch it for hours. I miss this. Is there any link or download for Johnny?|
|I remember working in a large computer companies support center when this screensaver was the hot thing! We'd have hundreds of PCs running it and we'd all shout and point to our friends when we'd see something new happening!!! There's never been anything like it since.|

Yes I remember. My cousins used this screensaver many years ago. It was exciting just watching to see what happened next. As a young boy it seemed almost as if the man on the island had its own life.

Yes, I remember this. Back in school when we had our computer labs classes our teachers just used to leave us in the labs. There were hardly enough computers for everyone and we had to share and a lucky few got the nice computers. And for us the nice computers were the ones which had the screensavers like in the view above. The person who could preview the screensaver were considered golden, back in our time.

I think that I was maybe too young to see this screensaver. I was only familiar with the labyrinth period :p but I would have loved to have this one
