I didn't implement say, text that can map to a 3d point. But if you wanted to, it would be a fairly simple projection (from 3-space, to a point on screen). You could then have the touchable track that point.

Widgets are movable. There is an interface where widgets can be dragged. They also slide in, (messages from the top), so most of the props in the base class get used.

I put screenfuls of Touchables in containers called Panels. (That's where this question came from). Multiple Panels can be overlaid on top of each other and they can each "transition in" and "transition out". Each menu screen is placed in a separate Panel. The ship dash controls and HUD are distinct panels as well.

comment How can I draw a perspective-correct quad?
Before you try anything else, make sure your texcoording is not wrong. Try a non-symmetrical image and see if it doesn't come out chopped in the middle.

comment What is the value of gameTime.ElapsedGameTime.TotalSeconds?
@MesutDarvishian If you are looking for that time interval that passed since the last frame, you really should just use 1./60. (fix your timestep)
