Started and (almost) finished a brand new front-end for the game today! It's all 3D and swanky! The main menu and options menu both work completely, with save and load functions being put back in after the first demo is released (more on that later). Pics below:
The next thing is that the first demo will be released on February 1st, 2012. It will contain (at least) the first level of the game, the intro cutscene and the tutorials/cutscenes throughout the first level. Hopefully, it'll be enough to give a good first taste of what the final game will be like!
