GUI Extensions and Improvements, mainly focusing on Touchscreen Devices

by Narek Mailian for ScummVM

While ScummVM has support for direct input mode for touchscreen devices, many of the controls using this mode feel awkward due to them being optimized for mouse/keyboard usage. This project aims to create a beautiful looking user interface that can be navigated on a smaller screen with fingers, focusing on landscape mode, on modern touchscreen devices. The goal is to make ScummVM feel like a native application without sacrificing too much functionality.
