Hi ! Yeti here, I’m currently an engineering student and during my free time I contribute to this cool open-source app called GNOME Games (or just Games for short).

One would expect an app with that name to be some kind of collection of mini games for GNOME but you would be wrong. Games markets itself as a “games manager”, which means it automatically detects all of the games installed on your machine and lists them, such that you have all of your games nicely gathered together in one window.

But IMO (“in my opinion” in IRC jargon) the juiciest feature of this app is that it comes packed with a bunch of emulator cores which means that you can run retro games like Game Boy games directly in the Games app window.

My favorite retro game, ‘Asteroids’

In this blog I will post about my various endeavors in contributing to this app.
