World hints are snippets of information in the level that help the user navigate or progress through the game. The one's I added to Resurgence used a specific font and had three sizes, they where placed in the level using a hammer entity and always faced the player.

Looping sprint sounds (1/2)

What is Aftermath? (1/?)
