    That’s great, i was looking everywhere and was very sorry that windows port didn’t exist untill now…
    So please, can you send it via mail or give link to download?

      There’s a download link on the site linked in the post. It’s the link in the upper left hand corner of the page.

    Link is dead … do you have one that works?

    • Kirk Baucom

      That’s a bummer! I’ll try to contact the developer and see if he moved it. I don’t have a copy myself (which seems foolish, in retrospect).

    • Kirk Baucom

      His site is back now, huzzah! Sounds like he had some kind of issue with his hosting provider.

    please post a mirror, the link is dead.

    • Kirk Baucom

      Unfortunately, I don’t have a copy to post. Hopefully the site will return, it has disappeared in the past.

        I was fortunate enough to contact the author several years ago and get the source. I made a couple of modifications (like shark collision detection to show the original fish splat animation), and added some new objects. I’m hosting the binary here for anyone interested: https://www.werbweb.com/asciiquarium-windows-screensaver/

          Hi Russell

          I’d be interested in getting in contact with you concerning your 1.3 version for Windows. I tried installing/using it on Windows 10 but it seems like there is a problem because it won’t start. Also I’d be interested in those source files, if you want to or are allowed to share them, because I’m learning to use C/C++ myself right now and this looks like a project I’d enjoy understanding and modifying for my studies. Feel free to shoot me an email at contact.simonnageleisen (at) gmail (dot) com if you want.

          Cheers,

          Simon
