A website to browse the libretro database – db.libretro.com

A new website is now available at db.libretro.com.

db.libretro.com is an online database of video games. It is generated from the exact same game database that is used in RetroArch for scanning your game collection.

Compiling a database of all the existing games is not an easy task. Thanks to the hard work of no-intro and other preservation teams, libretro-database was started on a very solid basis. However, as we are adding more and more sources of games, maintaining a high level of quality has become a challenge.

We hope that this new tool will have a positive impact on the overhaul quality of libretro-database and libretro-thumbnails which is tightly related. It is primarily intended as a visualization and debug tool for the database maintainers and contributors.

With a little bit of effort, it could become an important pillar of the preservation of the video game history.
