kcometen4: An OpenGL screensaver with exploding comets.


kcometen4.kss - An OpenGL screensaver with exploding comets.


kcometen4.kss [Qt options] [KDE options] [options]


KCometen4 is an OpenGL screensaver. A variety of multi-colored comets bounce inside a room until they explode. Occasionally lightning will also strike and blow them up. Meanwhile, a free-floating camera watches the action and sometimes enters a slow motion "bullet time" mode. It is suprisingly hypnotic.
