I'm fairly experienced with C++ and OpenGL, but there are some In-Game UI elements I'm not sure I would be able to program with just C++ and OpenGL. The game will consist of basic polygonal 3D models with no fine detail at first, and basic texturing, until we hire an artist onto the team. The only in-game GUI elements I will really need are a spell bar with drag N drop spell elements, and a simple inventory.
So, if you have experience with this type of thing, please make a suggestion.

I'll definitely check out the UDK. Anybody have any other suggestions?
Visual3d.NET is C Lang and .XNA. We are wrokging with it for our game on there and the graphics and API is simple to edit in the Visual Scripting. The Video Tutorials are great I am a Artist on the team and even I can do programming witht he tutorials. The Engine Editor is made for peopel that do not do a lot of programming though it also makes programming more simple.
