LaunchBox is a frontend for Windows developed by Unbroken Software, LLC. The primary developer is Jason Carr, who originally developed it to improve his experience with DOSBox but the program became highly customizable over time.
LaunchBox today is program agnostic, having been used by BlueMaxima for Flashpoint before its standalone launcher was introduced. LaunchBox is proprietary freeware, but it has a premium version that includes an HTPC UI called Big Box. It also includes a metadata scraper for some platforms.
Carr has previously explored porting LaunchBox to Linux using Mono.
There used to be an Android version, but development stopped and the app was removed from the app store due to it generating too little revenue and taking up about as much development time as the Windows version.
