Rockstar Original Desktops Collection: Chronos Series

Posted on April 8 2011, 11:09am | Author: R* R | Filed Under: Rockstar



A couple of weeks ago here in the U.S., we experienced Daylight Savings Time, a biannual event where we collectively travel through time. Unfortunately, there were no reported run-ins with dinosaurs, killing of ancestors resulting in grandfather paradoxes or trips to the distant future. That’s probably because we only moved forward an hour. Coming on the heels of our recent trip through the fourth dimension, we have our new Chronos Series desktops. They serve both as abstractions of the omnipresent future/past and as decoration for your computer. So, until time travel becomes a reality for all of us — instead of a pastime exclusively for morally flexible billionaires — enjoy these wallpapers.

Get this pair of wallpapers (along with some buddy icon and avatar versions you can get weird with) in our Downloads section.

        Chronos #1 is now on my PS3!
        For those who do not see the R * logo, lower the contrast of your screen.

        @Rockstar Did you ever consider making premium themes RockstarGames for Xbox 360 or PS3 (annimated or static) ?

                        The human figures in the "Ana" desktop are from the NASA Pioneer plaque and were drawn by Carl Sagan's second wife Linda Salzman. Sagan and NASA, apparently afraid to let extraterrestrials know too much about human women, censored the anatomically correct drawing by erasing one vertical line. Four decades later, when the first spacecraft carrying this message to the stars was nearly 15.5 billion kilometers from Earth, an artist for Rockstar Games made the drawing "SFW" by erasing some dots.

                                All because someone put metal in the microwave.

                                    @emmi18176860 We normally don't announce when we're bringing out new artwork or desktops, but do be sure to look for more in the future here on the Newswire.

                                        The two people in the first one-- a similar picture was etched onto the plaque which was on Pioneer 10, a deep space satellite. In case aliens found it, they'd know how we look. :)

                                        These are awesome.
