The GUI will be based upon GWEN for C#.

http://code.google.com/p/gwen/

Its a brilliant system and it should work well with C#. As with any GUI its usually a real pain to make a framework that allows for 'ease of use' and 'power to the artists'. However.. there is a plan. The idea is to neatly map xaml to GWEN objects and provide realtime editing facilities to build GUIs using xaml (much like VS Express).

The important thing is that the GUI should be _simple_ to use. Utterly simple. If at any time the tools and system is starting to look and feel complex SLAP ME!!

With xaml, there is a good way to structure pages - its not ideal, but I think its a good start. The only other current thoughts on this is building a flash renderer for 3D like Hikari but this is a project in itself. Xaml == path of least resistance :)
