What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“ScreenPlay still needs time to be feature complete. The goal is to release version 1.0 of ScreenPlay when we are feature complete.

ScreenPlay is already really stable but the goal is to do more testing for a rock solid experience

ScreenPlay has been tested already on many devices. But there are always cases where some components can cause problems like malfunctioning graphics drivers or specific Windows updates.

To finish the feature list on all platforms until we hit 1.0 and beyond

ScreenPlay code is written to be extremely portable. With the synchronization of Steam settings and Steam Workshop, we want to be able to start ScreenPlay on all your devices. How awesome would it be to install and sync ScreenPlay with your Widgets and Wallpaper on all your devices.

Growing Steam Workshop content

New users are expecting a vast Steam Workshop. The Workshop content is still growing but is lacking some awesome Wallpaper. Be the first to upload a Wallpaper for your favorite game, movie or TV show!

Better guides/examples on how to create Wallpapers and Widgets

We use QML/Javascript for all non-video Wallpapers. QML is the language that ScreenPlay itself is written in and easy to learn but ScreenPlay is still lacking examples on how to use QML.”

Approximately how long will this software be in Early Access?

“It will take up to 2 more years to add all features and to have full support for Linux and Mac. A new ScreenPlay version is released every 2 months! With these fast incremental updates we hope to exit Early Access in this timeframe.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Early Access is for us to add features, platform support and maximize stability. We want to listen to the community on feedback they provide during this time. ScreenPlay upcoming features while in Early Access are:

Wallpaper Editor
An editor to easily create content is key for our vision. The user should be able to easily create their own wallpaper without any coding knowledge!

System information API for all platforms
System information and statistics are important to any gamer. For this we want to enable creators to use these system statistics like CPU, GPU, RAM, Internet speed to be used in their content.

Linux support
List support is the trickiest because it depends on the desktop environment. For this KDE plasma will be the first to receive ScreenPlay support. On Gnome based Linux systems it is not possible to draw beneath the desktop icons. So we would have to recreate the desktop icons.

macOS support (x86 and ARM)
macOS support is in its final stages. Wallpapers are working, but we still have some polishing to do. ARM support is planned but only for the far future.

Fully translated
ScreenPlay already has multi language support (EN,DE,RU,FR,ES,KO ,VI) thanks to our amazing community! This will only grow with time and you can help. Please have a look at our forums for a guide on how to add translations!

Godot support
Using a real next-gen game engine for creating wallpapers is a key goal for ScreenPlay. It is a lot of fun to create wallpapers with the powerful Godot editor and engine capabilities.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

  • Windows support
  • Wallpaper (HTML5, video and QML/Javascript)
  • Widgets support
  • Wallpapers wizard
  • Create Wallpaper from videos
  • Multi monitor support
  • Autostart
  • Steam Workshop
  • Instant Wallpaper replacement
  • Multi language support for Russian, German, English, French, Korean, Vietnamese

Will this software be priced differently during and after Early Access?

ScreenPlay is and will be free of charge forever! This app is open source, so everybody can contribute to make it better!”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“YES! ScreenPlay is open source. This means EVERYONE can help. We already have active community members in our forums and discord. Also, we have 100% community driven translations for many languages like Korean and French.”
