Is there an option for a narrator character who does an intro to the game, and guides the character through the game- especially if its a goal orientated game? Or an option for a character to speak without hero having to walk to them and click on them to start?
So I assume you want to start the narrator when a level starts? There is a hack where you can do this: place your hero right in front of an invisible actor, and when the game starts the screenplay will be triggered.
But you also seem to want it at other moments. So when do you want that to be triggered? When the hero walks over some space? Or after a timeout?
Do you know of some game that already does this, so I can take a look?
