    What if you could just create text boxes in Buildbox
    instead of having to create tons of lines one by one?
    Now you can with Text Box for Buildbox!

    Click here to download it from itch.io!


    Text Box is fully customizable, here's a quick description of its attributes:
    • Text: put your text here, it supports very long texts, it's been tested with whole chapters made up by thousands of words!
    • Font Asset: this is a container for a font; there's a sample one included with this package and you can easily create your own by duplicating it and changing the font or settings of its Label.
    • Max chars per line: maximum characters per line, text will wrap automatically once a line reaches this length.
    • Line spacing: space between lines of text.
    • Paragraph Spacing: space between paragraphs.
    • Paragraph Indentation: first line of a paragraph will be indented by this value.
    • New paragraph after period & blank space: if enabled will create a new paragraph when a period followed by spaces is encountered.
    • Full justification (experimental): adds spaces between words to fully justify text.
    • Position, Rotation and Scale of the textbox will be applied to its content as well.


    • A ready to use Buildbox Asset file (.BBASSET) you can drag & drop in your game for immediate use; the asset includes the Text Box node and a sample Font Asset.
    • The Text Box node file (.BBNODE) if you prefer to add it to your own nodes.
    • A sample Font Asset to be used with the Text Box, you can easily create your own by duplicating it and changing the font or settings of its Label.
    • A demo BBDOC that demonstrates how the Text Box for Buildbox works.

    First public release.
