I recall the After Dark screensaver quite well. I believe it first came out before I began using a PC (I was still running the Color Computer at the time). I can't remember if I ever ended up owning it - I want to say that I eventually did get it after we got a Windows 3.1 PC. The reason I recall it most is because when I was going into stores that sold software (slim pickings today), this was always on display.

Talk about a sign of the times. Not only were there stores selling a lot of packaged software, but a screensaver was one of those packages. You would be hard pressed to find the for SALE today.
