Yeah, quite a few of these look like concept art from video games or movies.

Eh, East St. Louis (and parts of St. Louis itself) are far, far scarier.

Not to mention Detroit.

So screen grabs from video games?

The wording of the title, and location of this story, made me think that someone had come up with something you could put on your actual windows to make it look like you were looking out of your home to a dystopian landscape. Which further made me wonder if maybe someone had come up with a way to, say, take a picture of what you see out your windows and covert it to look dystopian.


Now i am disappointed, though it's no one's fault but my own.

/nifty wallpapers, though.

Am I stupid* or are all these "wallpapers" horrendously small? Like, fewer than 700 pixels wide...

It's not a "wallpaper" if you have to stretch it to hell and gone to fill your desktop!

/* - yes
