Project Description
Blue Pill, Red Pill is a screensaver of dropping glyphs inspired by the screens in the matrix movie. It also features a terminal output and glossy overlay.

Written in vb.net against the dotnet framework 2. It uses the SdlDotNet wrapper, which is distributed under the terms of the GNU LGPL license: http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/lesser.html

Grab the source code (Visual Studio 2005) in the Source Code section. Head to the download section for a pre-built win32 setup (Thank you NSIS!). There is some Developer Info available too.
