arrow_back Add Another Character


This video will give you a couple of ideas.

First, the new character needs to be a new sprite. Click “choose sprite from library” to pick your 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 she can react.
