I am a noob when it comes to the blender game engine, in fact blender in general, however I did find an amazingly simple cool thing to do with a the soft body physics in Blender and the ocean modifier. So I made the animation below and thought to myself, "Hey, I wonder if I can make a screensaver out of this." So I looked up a tutorial on makingh a screensaver and found I had to use the blender game engine and make a .exe file then save it has an .scr, but that's not my problem. I have looked up a lot of tutorials and I can't find a straight answer, but it feels like they are all pointing towards this is currently impossible. However instead of just scrapping the project, I decided to look for the wonderful people of the internet's advice. Can you recreate this in blender game as a .exe file and still have it be randomized? Also, if you can how do I reset the screensaver when the cube hits the plane at the bottom?

Apologies for my long windedness.

Edit: Fixed the links, my bad :/

Ignore the other objects in the second layer, I was going to figure out how to add more stuff bouncing around and adding an empty to spawn objects at random so I didn't have to reset the program.

    $\begingroup$ Try uploading the .blend files to pasteall.org instead of Google Drive $\endgroup$ – PGmath Dec 19 '14 at 19:16
