You can add text animations in your Unity games using my plugin called Text Animator. It works based on the package TextMeshPro and it shows text dynamically (typewriter-like), includes multiple built-in text effects and lets you easily create your own text animations and text effects.


Get it from the Unity Asset Store or from Itch.io.


Story

I was making my own game and I thought “it would be cool if, when this character is scared, the letters of his dialogue could visibly shake”. I catched the chance and I started writing code, wanting to create multiple text animations for my Unity games.

After one month the plugin was ready and “Text Animator for Unity” received interests from many other game developers friends as well. I decided to publish it in two major storefronts, the Unity Asset Store and Itch.io, letting creators add text effects in a very few steps.

Animate texts in Unity

Nowadays Text Animator for Unity brings texts and dialogues to life in hundreds of projects all over the world, showing letters dynamically (typewriter-like) and adding text animations (including custom ones).
For example, I am so happy to see characters emotions showing up from text, thanks to simple text effects that make words shake or wave, fade and way more.

During its first month already, “Text Animator for Unity” conquered the Top 10 in the “Top New Popular Assets” ranking in the Unity Asset Store.
