A simple Text Interface Engine to control text output (like in a RPG dialogue) for Godot.

The "Cave-Story" font was created by enigmansmp1824; it's CC-BY-SA licensed, and can be found in

A simple demonstration video:


This is the Godot v3.x version of the plugin; for Godot v2.x compatibility, check the Godot_v2.x branch.


  • Control the velocity in which the text is going to be displayed! (Even text dialogues can have emotions!)
  • Adjust visually the Interface size, so it can fit it in any Dialogue box you want! The script will handle the maximum number of lines and characters!
  • Buffer texts, inputs, and breaks in the Dialogue, with easy to use methods!
  • Control the Dialogue flow from the outside with the available user signals!
  • Use tags on specific parts of your text! (In a RPG, you may want to show specific animations during certain parts of the dialogue; e.g. a "!" question mark popup in the head of a character in one of the moments of the dialogue)
  • User scroll friendly; Log all the text printed; auto-clip words; and more!

Take a look at the 'public' methods in the script and the export variables available; it should give you a hint about the stuff you can easily customize in the engine!


You'll need the Godot Engine to do this.

To use GodotTIE as an Addon:

  1. Copy the "addons" folder to your project.
  2. Enable GodotTIE addon on "Project Settings".
  3. Instance a TextInterfaceEngine node to your scene.
