    This week was all about adding more UI to the game.

    We now have a main menu screen which includes information on the Capture the Cube game mode. Since it’s an Early Access game, we’ve also included a bit of info on some of the features we’d eventually like to add.

    From the main menu screen you can also access the top menu bar, which includes:
    • Profile - Change your in-game nickname. The profile screen can only be accessed from the main menu. When in-game, this gets replaced by a leave server button which exits the game and brings you back to the main menu.
    • Settings - Ability to invert your mouse, as well as adjust the mouse & zoom sensitivity.
    • Mute & Fullscreen buttons
    The top menu bar can also be accessed in-game by pressing Tab.

    When in-game, press Tab to bring up the scoreboard (we'll have more info on points in a future update). From here you can also choose to switch teams.

    One really cool thing about the game is that no matter what team you choose, your team will always be blue and the enemy will always be red. So as soon as you switch a team, all of the UI on the scoreboard & in-game changes to match your team being blue.

    Here’s a quick video showing off some of the new menus & UI:

    Our goal is to keep it simple for now so that we can get a playable version out as soon as possible. We do plan on adding more options at some point, not exactly sure what or when but we will add more :)

    I love this type of UI ;)! Do you have plans to add music in the menu? Would be really cool if the music sounds different in each part of the menu, like searching game, looking your profile...

    Oh, and I'm so happy that you will add clans! :p

    We do have plans on adding some music. We'll probably keep it limited to 1 song (at least for now) in order to keep the download size small.

    Only the HUD elements change, the player model colors don't. One feature we eventually want to have is character customization, so you could make yourself blue, red, green whatever and people would know if you are friendly or not by the indicator above your head (red=hostile, blue=friendly).

    I was asking for the HUD elements to have red=friendly and blue=hostile.
