  • SGDBoop

    A program used for applying custom artwork to Steam, using SteamGridDB. Supports both Windows and Linux, written completely in C.

    Underrated tip: for missing Steam library game art, use SteamGridDB's SGDB BOOP program! It will allow you to automatically apply custom artwork to native Steam games as well as non-Steam games without going through the hassle of downloading each asset individually and manually adding them :)
