VIDE is a plugin for Unity3D that simplifies the creation of complex, interactive dialogues by providing the user with a powerful node interface. VIDE organizes the node data of the created dialogues and presents it to the coder in a friendly, raw fashion. It is designed to be bindable to any sort of UI system like NGUI.
Unlike some other options, this system will not work out-of-the-box. Why? Because it is you the one who creates the dialogue manager, which takes the node data (the variables) you receive from the VIDE system and applies it to the GUI. Why like this? So that you have full control over your dialogues and data. You choose what goes where, and only apply the features you actually need.
But! You can either setup your manager from scratch (which is very easy) or simply use one of the demo managers the plugin comes with and build up (or down) from there.
The Pro version comes with 5 demo scenes while the free Lite version comes with 2, but the system works exactly the same for both. The Pro version has many extra features that will increase your productivity and give you a lot more flexibility and control over your dialogues! Check out the FAQs to learn more!
