Strength, Wisdom, Agility and... Luck!

A Stat is a numeric value that represents a particular characteristic of a character or object. For example, how strong a character is or what is his maximum amount of health.

Stats are defined in the Preferences Window and then used in the Stats component on any Game Object.

In Preferences Window

You define the name, icon, color and different visual properties of a Stat. You also define the default value it will have (base value) and the Formula that will calculate its final value.

In Stats Component

The Stats component is a container for all Stats and Attributes a character or object has, plus any Status Effects and Stat Modifiers.

You can modify the default values and/or Formula assets in the Stats component

Stats in Runtime

The Stats module has a set of Actions, Conditions and Triggers that allow you to retrieve the value of a Stat. Its value is the result of applying an fixed number of steps:

Let's take for example, the player wants to hit tree. In order to calculate the damage the tree takes, we need to calculate the player's strength stat:

  • (A) The default value of the stat strength and the formula are retrieved from the Preferences Window.

  • (B) The Stats component might have overwritten the default value and/or the Formula object for that particular Stat. If so, those are the values that will be used. The Formula expression is then evaluated with the value as input.

  • (C) The result of evaluating the Formula is then given as the input of the rest of Stat Modifiers (which might be from Status Effects or because the character is wearing a certain weapon), which will increase/decrease the value accordingly.

  • (D) The result is the final value of the strength stat.

There's a clear distinction between the base value of a Stat and its final result

These concepts are better off explained with examples. We've gathered a bunch of common case scenarios where we believe this might be easier to understand.


There are some Actions that let you interact and query stats values and states.

  • Change Stat: Allows you to change the base value of a stat. The value can come from a variable of be a constant value

  • Sync Stat to Variable: Assigns the current value of a Stat to a specific global or local variable.

  • Debug Stat: Prints the value of a Stat in the console


Same as Actions, Conditions with stats allow to use the Stats features outside of the module, such as in the Inventory, Dialogue modules or even your own custom systems

  • Stat Value: Returns the final value of a Stat and compares it to another constant or variable number.
