Oohh, good point. I'm pretty new to UI design and had tried to do some subtly transparency on the textbox, but I wasn't too happy with it. I'll try pushing the transparency even more at the bottom of the box and see what I can get!
And the full game will have some point and click elements to the backgrounds, so at the very least if I cant get the textbox looking nice, you'll be able to enjoy the backgrounds fully during those scenes. :)
Thank you so much for playing!!!
