Added globe icon to Main Menu for region selection


How ironic.




EDIT: Thanks for keeping us up to date on this, Sam. Whether we like it or not it's good for us to keep an eye on the development of this product and be familiar with it as it emerges and evolves.

It will be interesting to see what this (empty) "globe" will look like. :P

And no problem, I will continue to put updates out for everyone to check up on. I quite enjoy this game, it has so much potential, but whether or not the potential will be reached is debateable.

Sam. :)
