RetroDECK brings an environment to catalog and play your retro games directly on your Steam Deck

What is Retrodeck?

RetroDECK is an emulation and retro gaming solution to catalog and play your game collection directly from Linux in one unified application. It's inspired by other embedded emulation systems like AmberELEC, EmuELEC, CoreELEC, Lakka, and Batocera. RetroDECK is powered by EmulationStation Desktop Edition, that uses RetroArch and other standalone emulators to allow you to import and play your favorite games in a tidy environment. No other software is needed as everything it's already included in one package!

BETA NOTICE: RetroDECK is still in Beta and the team is actively developing and adding more features. The primary focus during the beta period is on SteamOS and the Steam Deck but we hope to expand to more devices and general Linux desktop in the future

NOTE: It can be run on Linux desktop right now but there will be some manual configurations needed for input, storage location and other tiny hickups.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE STEAM DECK: 1. Start RetroDECK from the Desktop mode (only needed for the initial first time configuration) 2. Add RetroDECK to your Steam Library by pressing "Add a non-steam game to my library" 3. Download the offical RetroDECK controller profile from Steam 4. [OPTIONAL] Download Steam Grids graphics for RetroDECK with BoilR
