Confetti Factory

Confetti Factory by P. Lamoreux, P. Young.
©1990-93 Berkeley Systems Inc.

Part of the More After Dark collection.

I love this module and I have absolutely no idea why. Perhaps it's the ducks. Perhaps it's always the ducks. The random nature of the conveyor layout lends itself to that "anything can happen" After Dark module mentality. Of course, "anything" in this case meaning what can happen when randomly colored pixels are dropped onto moving platforms and obey the law of gravity in a pseudo-realistic manner.

I'm not sure if the ducks work at the factory or if the factory stops for duck crossing the same way that hotel in Florida stops everything when the ducks walk through the lobby. Either way, this is was one of my first favorite modules and was immediately placed in my random rotation. Even today it works great on modern systems and can be found on my computer when I'm not.


Confetti Factory is an artist's conception of a neo-modern, antediluvian, post-industrial workplace.

To see ducks, wait until the end of the workshift.

If you don't like the way the ducks are piling their confetti, use the Caps Lock key to reverse the direction of the conveyor belts.
