Emulate Wii U games on your computer and use your keyboard as a controller with this nifty tool
Cemu is an emulator that allows you to play Wii U games on a computer, by opening encrypted WUD and RPX/RPL files. While the goal of the application is to reach a state that allows you to perfectly emulate and render the games at high framerates, that is not currently possible, since this is but a prototype with limited functionality at the moment.
However, it is still quite the feat, given the fact that the Wii U console has only been out for a short while, compared to others that have been on the market for years now, yet still lack an emulator. Naturally, Wii U games are not as demanding as PS3 ones, but the emulation usually takes a huge toll on your resources regardless of that.
As far as the options you can play with as of right now, only a few logging tools have been included. They can come in handy if you want to see why your games crash, but other than that, nothing much is on the menu. The source code is also available, in case you have any ideas of your own on the subject.
Note: There is no proper controller or sound support as of right now.
