Spice up your desktop with this cheap Wallpaper Engine app from Steam.

Steam Workshop, the distribution tool for the Wallpaper Engine app

Not everybody likes Steam, but there is a good reason why Wallpaper Engine is distributed through Steam: the Steam Workshop. In it, users can add their own contributions to Wallpaper Engine app. For small developers, this is a pretty cool way to get new content into the application.

Wallpaper Engine breathes life into your desktop

The app’s effects are quite impressive. Start by clicking a wallpaper from the collection to select it. You will also get some options for altering playback speed, volume and the theme colors of the desired wallpaper.

You can have the Wallpaper Engine change your Windows accent color with the wallpaper automatically. You’re also able to modify the frame rate and you’ll notice that it can go up to 60FPS. To reach 60FPS, you really have to own a great set of graphics hardware if you want that things will go as smoothly as possible.

System requirements

If you want the app to work perfectly and without interfering with your system’s performance you should have the following requirements covered: Windows 7 (with Aero), 8.1, 10, 1.66 GHz Intel i5 or equivalent, 1024 MB RAM, HD Graphics 4000 or above, DirectX Version 10, and 512 MB available space.

Wallpaper Engine is a Steam Early Access app

Wallpaper Engine is still in development and its latest patch was delivered on May 26. You can purchase the app for $4, something worth considering since it will really add some life to boring desktops.
