Shimeji

Shimeji, the little critters seen running all over the place on this desktop.

It's almost like they're invading me as if you leave one there long enough it will duplicate itself with a cute little animation, for example on the right hand monitor link is about to pull another link out of that chest.

Now these things are horrible if you want to concentrate as you'll be tossing them off the edges of your monitor so you can access buttons etc. and of course you'll just find yourself throwing them around just coz it's cool.

However, they're pretty cool and you can get a lot of different skins for them.



I recommend you try them out

Try starting with one little one sitting on your desktop, and see how long you can go without removing any of them.
