Okay, after the family visit over Christmas I got back to the game.
I continued working on the tech, there is now a light system (thanks to @orangepascal and his tutorial http://techblog.orangepixel.net/2015/07/shine-a-light-on-it/).
I made tiles (which I don't like, but they have to work for now) and managed to load the tiled map into the game.
After animation, light and map were up and running (as a big chaos in the main class) I have begun moving stuff into classes. (Right now the light class is done).
Here is what this looks like in the game (scaled down 2:1):
