Pegasus is a graphical frontend for browsing your game library (especially retro games) and launching them from one place. It's focusing on customizability, cross platform support (including embedded devices) and high performance.
Instead of launching different games with different emulators one by one manually, you can add them to Pegasus and launch the games from a friendly graphical screen from your couch. You can add all kinds of artworks, metadata or video previews for each game to make it look even better!*Note: no games or assets are included due to legal reasons.
With additional themes, you can you can completely change everything that is on the screen. Add or remove UI elements, menu screens, whatever. Want to make it look like Kodi? Steam? Any other launcher? No problem. You can add animations and effects, 3D scenes, or even run your custom shader code.
Pegasus can run on Linux, Windows, Mac, Raspberry Pi, Odroid and Android devices. It's compatible with EmulationStation metadata and gamelist files, and instantly recognizes your Steam games!
Pegasus is completely free and open-source, but if you wish, you can support the development with donations. Feel free to name the price you think is fair (or scroll down for the downloads).
