I was thinking of maybe coming at Ludum Dare from an adventure game angle, so I've been playing around with interface code. This amounts basically to copying the Monkey Island 2 interface - down to the colour scheme :D Couldn't get quite the right fonts though which was annoying. If you know of a ttf font that looks like the Monkey Island 2 command buttons please let me know! :)
Here's some of the code:
Of course depending on the theme I may have to abandon my adventure game interface aspirations!
