Transcript

You can add more characters to your story.

This video will give you a couple ideas.

First, the new character needs to be a new sprite.

Click Choose Sprite from the library to pick a new character.

The hide and show blocks allow new characters to show up at specific times.

In this example, the new character shows up when the scene changes to the woods.

It hides at the beginning of the story when the green flag is clicked.

You can use broadcast and broadcast and wait blocks to make the characters react to each other.

This example uses broadcast to let the ballerina know what choice the other character made so that she can react.

Now it's your turn.

First, add another sprite to your project.

Second, have that sprite interact with your current character.

Consider using show and hide, broadcast, and say blocks.

Be creative.
