How does the color of the text correspond to the background? On the code I don’t see how the color of the text is initially made so I was wondering how it is done.

This reply is quite late, but in case you are still wondering about this (or someone else reading this is), I think that the text is simply white since we didn’t provide the third argument (style) which is optional. Even if you change the color of the background the text will remain white (e.g. if the background is white, the text will be invisible). You can change the color of the text by adding an object with the style properties.

E.g. to make the text gray:
this.add.text(20,20,"Hello, world!", {color: 'gray'})

Fun fact that I finally figured out by trial and error: Phaser does not support ES6!! Hope this helps someone else
