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

First Release

Hello Folks, we’re glad to announce the release of our first desktop decorating software!
When we say “first” we mean that what we have here is just one out of many possible examples of our software's core functionality. Implementable objects, characters and animations are virtually endless, and we are willing to explore all sorts of themes and settings because it's so much fun!

Therefore, this release will be followed by a constant stream of updates and patches to keep new content, both permanent and seasonal, flowing. Speaking of which, let us present you with a special Christmas treat only available for a limited time on launch week: the Snowman!

Our aim is to allow this release to work as an input to the Community and gather suggestions from you all, in order to develop more content according to whatever you'd like to see come to life on your desktop. Of course we have some ideas floating around already, and we are currently evaluating to add some themes called Space Explorer, Sea Life World, Metropolis Skyline, and Alien Desert. Nonetheless, we encourage you to share your thoughts and desires.

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
