Become a sponsor to Libretro

We are the Libretro/RetroArch project, and have been doing daily development duties since 2011. Ever since its inception, by circumstance it has grown into a massive all-encompassing project on Github that has almost become as time-consuming and demanding as several full-time jobs. The project also has grown far beyond anything we could have ever imagined and shaped an entire retro gaming industry that extends far beyond our project. With all that being said, we are increasingly having to bear even more responsibilities in terms of code maintenance and development duties, PR reviewing, developer interpersonal relationships, communication, etc. And there's only so many hours in a day.

Your support helps to make our project possible and for this to keep remaining a sustainable endeavor for us. It also ensures we can keep growing and expanding the project. As part of your support, we can continue daily work and development on RetroArch, the Libretro organization, Libretro cores and other related projects.

And it also helps ensure we have more funding power to expand our operations and move onto ever more bolder challenges. Maintaining a Github organization with over 250+ repos, subcores is labor-intensive work, and it requires expansion in order to keep going.
