RPG Textboxes (again)

I'm continuing on with my next book "How to Make a JRPG" it's going well, as I mentioned in the last blog post I'd run ahead with the GUI code a little and the last two days I've been catching up with the text. Unfortunately this means I don't have any interesting screenshots today :( There's still quite a bit of work to do until I'm ready to finally move out of the GUI stuff. I feel like I've spent too long on it but it's definitely to the benefit of the code!

If you want a little taster of what's to come in the full book then please check out the article I wrote for called How to Build a JRPG a Primer for Game Developers where I take a look at a few of the systems that make up a JRPG. (Though the book is far more specific and you get real working code :D )

Also it's Ludum Dare this weekend, a global game jam where you're challenged to make a game in 48 hours. It's a great way to actually get something done and get some experience finishing a game. If it that sounds tempting then I strongly encourage you to give it a go!
