Have you ever wanted your desktop to be inundated with an irresponsible amount of potatoes? I'm talking at the level of an odd fetish that you literally never shared with anyone, not even your closest friends?


Ok... I don't really know what to do with that so I'll pretend that was 'yes'.

RELEASE_THE_POTATOES floods your desktop with a steady stream of potatoes. Why do they fall? Where do they come from? Why are they here? This is the most existential of the potatoware line. Although it renders your computer completely inoperable when running, you can have it open while trying to work, play games, or to provide your room with a contemplative mood when your machine is not in use.

Thank you for your continued patronage to useless software. Those interested in learning more about potatoware may visit the website here.

UPDATE: You can now download a javascript version of RELEASE_THE_POTATOES on github here. Rig your website to explode with potatoes!

will potatoware run on potatoes?

That was something, it was something AESTHETICAL. You always make epic projects, not as good as your other ones but that's pretty cool.

Actually that's just a bunch of ELECTRIC_POTATO.EXE's falling down your computer. I don't know how to rate this to be honest.
