I suggest you to look at Rust first – I guess, it may be what you're looking for.

I would like to point the OP towards OSDev's sister site, compilerdev.org, as a suitable venue for further discussion, However, that site is very low traffic still (hence the shameless promotion), so continuing here for now might make sense.

Also, given that you seem to dislike the C style syntax, why choose that at all? The syntax has nothing to do with it's viability as a systems language (its popularity might be another matter); languages as diverse as Modula-2, Ada, Forth, PL/1, and BLISS have all served such purposes well in the past. If you don't want C style syntax, find something you like better.

I'm personally not a big fan of the Rust syntax; though some syntax features are inspired by Rust.

Also; I don't like some parts of C syntax, other parts of it are fine. For example, I don't like the way arrays are initialised, but I do like things such as the way variables are assigned values and operated upon.

Edit: thanks for letting me know about the other website :p

This is just Java.

Syntactically, maybe. But java uses a JVM, possibly with AOT or JIT, and this is a compiled language.
