Today I got the menu to the point where I think I can show it off.
Here's the first screenshot of the menu:
It's very bland right now, but I'm adding icons and stuff soon!
The options don't work yet (both lead to the game), but it won't be too hard for me to add this functionality soon.
This was a lot of work, surprisingly. The menu routine itself is quite large, but it'll be able to be used with multiple menus in the game.
I'm running into the problem that I didn't implement all of the characters early on, so I have to add characters as I need them.
