Great! It's nice to see some quite different ideas.

The forum thread at http://forums.scummvm.org/viewtopic.php?t=11358 was
also interesting, if anyone didn't see it, although less realistic. :-)

Hm, what happens if you don't have any pictures? I'm not sure if there's
enough space for a text placeholder if you do it horizontally like that,
as opposed to in the other orientation (i.e. have a vertical list on one
side, with the name/picture).

And a more general question: how would it scale? The shots are really
small, and a big problem with the current GUI is that it's impossible to
touch anything on a phone at modern resolutions like 1920x1080.

The concept launcher GUI looks easy enough to scale, giving us nice big
targets to touch (as long as we have nice huge bitmaps for all the buttons
etc) but the config options etc are what worries me.
