What did you have in mind? A steam type applications which stores and launches games?

a game launcher that is wow-like

You know what i mean?

You mean like a pop-up before the actual game starts? Where the game developer shows you things such as recent updates, upcoming events, and advertisements?

I’ll make a sketch… wait a moment

One approach would need two things:

  1. point-rectangle collision detection. Your games are represented by rectangles, hover over them and click on them to interact with them – highlight, or launch. Here is how you do that: http://www.jeffreythompson.org/collision-detection/point-rect.php

  2. You need a launch command that points at each application: https://processing.org/reference/launch_.html
