Brain Candy

Download psychedelic PC and Macintosh software to enjoy during your trip.



Brain Candy
Here's where you can find software to help you trip out or, in the absence of illegal substances, make pretty pictures on your computer screen. This pages owes the TOUECCANS Gallery bigtime...a lot of the stuff was taken from there. Here's how the listing works:

Each program is presented in a table. In the upper left is the title of the program. If the program has a web page, the title is linked to it. To the right of the title is the description of the program, and underneath the title is the download information. To the very left is a symbol representing which operating system(s) the program is available for. The icons are as follows:

DOS DOS
Windows Windows
Windows 95 Windows 95/Windows NT 4.0
Macintosh Macintosh

Click on the symbol for whatever operating system you're using and you'll download that version of the program. Next to the operating system icon(s) is the size of the program in kilobytes, and to the right of that is the license information for the program (freeware/shareware/commercial demo).

Okay, so that should be all you need to know. Please alert us to any new braincandy programs or ones I have missed.
