The greatest screensaver of all time, Sierra On-Line’s Johnny Castaway, is now freeware!

You can download a copy from screensavers.com.

Here’s how I got this 16 bit marvel running in XP:

* Download johnnycastaway.exe

* Don’t run it. Instead, extract its contents to a temp folder. (It’s a zip file in disguise, so winzip or winrar should handle it.)

* Delete install.exe and installx.inx.

* Rename ‘JohnCast.scr’ to ‘ssJohnnyCastaway.scr’

* Move these four files into c:\windows

And viola!
