I have now added a dialogue function to my game prototype, meaning that the player character can interact with non-player characters (Unreal Engine, 2021). This proved to surprisingly be the most complex part of the programming I have done.
I relied on Reids Channel’s tutorial on a dialogue system in Unreal Engine to help me make this.
The next stage is to implement a combat system.
