Update 2.0

My Desktop Alive goes aesthetic!

We took a stroll in the mall, we stopped at the beauty salon, and then travelled back in time with our memory to bring you the very first DLC of the year, a vaporwave themed DLC to be precise.
We are having a whole lot of fun imagining the things we could implement in My Desktop Alive; we have many exciting ideas for new themes, features, and improvements. For instance, with this update we are introducing a useful save/load preset button which allows you to save any worthy composition. But that's not all! As we want to make things as easy and convenient as possible for our users, we decided to move forward and make every future DLC independent from each other (starting from this one). This way people will be free to get only the DLCs with the content they're interested in, and skip the others. Being all additional content, the main application is still required, but the Nature DLC is granted for free.


DLC ORGANIZATION: to start selecting elements to bring on your desktop, it’s now needed to select which content you’d like to use from the DLC panel.

SAVE/LOAD CUSTOM PRESET: it’s now possible to save a preset; you can do so by opening the main menu from the scene. You can also load a saved preset from the main menu at the beginning.

COLOR EDIT: from the in-app menu, under the “Edit” section it’s now possible to modify the color of an element (only available for certain elements).

ROTATION ON ALL AXES: we implemented the element’s rotation also on X and Z axis.

ROTATE AND CUSTOM ANIMATION: from the in-app menu, under the “Animation” section is now possible either to activate the Rotate Animation option (the element will rotate on Y axis) or to activate the Custom Animation (if applicable).

SELECT ALL: this feature can be found in the in-app “General Settings”; allows to move all the elements present on your desktop. It’s available just for some DLC.

DRAGGABLE MENU: the in-app menu is now draggable.

Update 1.1

Hey everyone, we are glad to announce the release of My Desktop Alive's first update! We received many useful suggestions from the Community in these first days, so we decided to implement some new features to the software. What's new?

Hide/Show Title bar option (selectable in the start menu)

Always on top option (selectable in the start menu)

Main Menu Button in-game: now you can come back to the start menu to add other elements to your scene

Of course we’re aware this is not a huge update, the software was released just a couple of days ago, but we plan to implement many other features as you keep suggesting them.
Indeed, for the next update (which will take a bit more than a few days) we plan to introduce:

Save custom presets
Steam Workshop integration

So enjoy, and continue sharing your feedback with us

About This Software

We spend an incredibly large amount of time sitting in front of our computer. We perform all sort of tasks, but every time we move from one task to another, we come back to the same, immobile, dull desktop. That’s why sometimes it’s good to twist things a bit, and have a lively bunch hang out around your computer screen.
It’s all about the good company. These friends will be there to cheer you up while working on that neverending excel file, will make you think twice before replying to your boss’ angry email, will drive positive thoughts to your mind on a cloudy day. Missing your cat at the office? Here’s a tiger that won’t split your coffee mug on your keyboard. Need a friend but you can’t stand hugs? Here’s a cute short-armed t-rex who’s unable to hug. Got the green thumb but you live in a basement? Here’s a tree, two trees, three trees! Keep focusing on the things you have to do while life goes on your desktop, you don’t have to worry about anything. Just… keep an eye on those robots, it’s not clear how they got there...

Select all the elements you want to bring to life on your desktop.
Once you are ready, click the "START" button and let the magic happen.

Now that your desktop is populated you can:

- Drag and drop each element holding the left mouse button to move it around
- Animate an element by double-clicking it
- Open an element’s control panel by right-clicking on it

The control panel allows you to rotate, resize,
duplicate, remove or change the depth of a single element.

Moreover, it’s possible to edit 4 features that will affect all the scenes:

- PERSPECTIVE CAMERA: simply change the camera view from orthographic to

- FREE ROAMING: activating this feature will apply physics to all elements, which will then be free to ambulate around your desktop, and bite your icons off if they feel like it.

- NATURAL INSTINCT: when this option is on, nature starts taking its course and each animal becomes either hunter or prey. Studies are being conducted on robots to analyse the impact on their artificial intelligence.

- FUNNY MODE: top secret
