Hi Kenney,

I'm just curious:

Why should I use this? It does not look really different to Steam BigScreen to me. Okay, you can have animated banners, but is it really all that makes it better?

I do use Steam BigScreen quite often, when I am playing games with a Controller (sticking to the original screen, when I'm about to play other games, that use Keyboard / Mouse).

Would be great, if you could enlighten me, as I don't really find it useful for me right now.

Cheers

Hey!

Personally, I wasn't a big fan of Steam Big Picture due to various reasons. The first and foremost is that GameGO has configuration for pretty much any aspect, from grid sizes to backgrounds and sounds. It's truly something for the perfectionist.

In the feature, it should be easy to add emulators (+ roms) and automatically get installed games and download banners. So at the moment it takes a while to set-up, but in the future it'll be easier to use than Steam Big Picture.

Thank you Kenney,

I think I will wait until it is a bit more advanced then :) For me, BigPicture is all I need at the moment, but when you have added Emulators and Automatition, I surely will give it a shot :)

Yeah, wanted to release a first version as soon as possible for people to report bug and request features :)

I just downloaded the GameGo and not sure what I can do with it...there is no menu and only two images that make a sound if I toggle them. How do I use this to access a game?
