Verbal is a node-based conversation tool for games.

I could not find a simple, flexible, open conversation tool, so I made one myself. It is meant to be a simple tool for gamejams and smaller projects.

This is ALPHA release, please report all bugs or wishes.

See project page: https://github.com/jarnik/verbal

! THIS PROJECT IS NOT IN DEVELOPMENT ANYMORE !

Here are some great dialogue tools you might want to consider instead:

It ’s a great project!

However, my native language and Japanese are not displayed. Will it be displayed if the font is changed? What should I do?

Thank you!

Thank you for considering the tool! Unfortunately this project is not in development anymore and the last editor version supports english font only.

Thanks!!

I know this project is on hold but is this usable with the Godot game engine?

I only used it with Unity, but it is written in C#, so it could work with Godot, too.

Working on new and hopefully more portable version :)

Can be used into Unity 3D?

Yes, I am using it in Unity.

Sadly, my current game is moving from using branching dialogues, so I will not have a need to develop Verbal any further at this point.

Very nice! Will consider donating (when I have enough money)

Thanks for reporting and sorry! The project is put on hold now, though :/

If I ever revive it, I'll check if you're still around for a possible retest.

the editor on linux crashes when you try to save

how do you use the editor?

Cool tool: I had the same idea some time ago but never got to actuallly program it...
Will this support XML export?
