I think that on a high level, it's a pretty cool idea. But as far as execution is concerned, I find it fucking galling that they charge something like 16 Euro for something that people wouldn't pay a fucking cent for if it were just their shitty original games, a flimsy-ass justification to effectively make bank off of other peoples' emulators, seeing as they allow people to effectively download MAME and other emulators from within the frontend itself. In fact, if you look very closely at some of the screenshots on the Steam store page itself, you'll notice a couple of instances where they forgot to scrub a monitor or marquee and replace it with their logo.

Life Pro Tip: If your commercial product relies on other peoples' free emulators so much so that you feel the need to point out that your product "doesn't ship with ROMs" in over half of your screenshots, you might be a bad person and a piece of shit, who I hope bad things happen to.
