Rubberband Racing Select Screens

Finally, another update for Rubberband Racing, the 3D Flash game I am currently developing. The menus, in which you select the car and the track you want to play, are pretty much finished. Have a look at them:

The first step I've done is to plan the flow of the user interface the game will be embedded in. The prototype had barely any interface, let alone menus. For the next iteration, I wanted to implement the communication between game and UI early on. Doing this late in the production can give you quite some headaches.

So I sat down with yEd and drew some lines and boxes.
