Here's one you may find interesting. It's an old "desktop enhancer" which can also be used as a screensaver.

It should be noted that I have not tested it on Windows 8. Good luck to you if you decide to try it.

Personally, my favorite screensaver is still the old 3D Maze...

I just use Fliqlo found here.

It is a flip style clock screen saver. Basic, but gives me a good glance at time when I am across the room watching TV.

I spent so much time on it when I was young. It was a very polished piece of software.

Edit: here's a video showing one of it's modules:

I like the motion picture screen saver. It displays pictures from your computer (you can pick the folder) with nice transition effects.
