Conditional Sentences

Sometimes you don't want to take completely different paths based on variables... all you really need is to say something a little different in a dialogue box. You can do that too! If you've ever used an IF function in excel this should feel familiar:

[[favorite_pet = cat 'cat toys' : 'dog toys']]

Let's break this down:

  • The first part inside the brackets is a condition (favorite_pet = cat).
  • Then a space, then option 1 in single quotes (cat toys).
  • Then, after the colon the second option (dog toys).
  • If the condition is true, the first option will be used. If it's false the second option will be used.

Since the app uses a single quote to determine the start and end of each option you can't currently use single quotes inside your sentences. This limitation will be fixed in an upcoming version.
