Select your characters


Remember that in Scratch, we call characters that can be animated "sprites".

I chose here to animated a conversation between two sprites that are already available on Scratch platform : Giga and Tera. But you can of course create your own sprites!


The bottom right section in Scratch is used select the sprites :


Sprite Giga


In this example code, Giga is initiating the conversation :

Once Giga is done talking, Giga sprite's code is sending a message to Tera sprite's code.

To do so, I created a new message "Hello_Giga" in the Events block broadcast (Hello_Giga)".



Sprite Tera


In this example code, Tera says "Hello" but is waiting for Giga to finish before answering :

To do so, I am using the created a new message "Hello_Giga" in the Events block "when I receive (Hello_Giga)".



Sample conversation


And voila!

With few lines of code we can start creating a story with 2 characters :
