Like some sort of a code where you can insert background music in your story, and the player can mute it with the click of a button. Can I do that using Twine?

I'm also kind of new to this thing.

What story format and version?

Edit from the distant future:

Use HAL instead of Howler for Harlowe.

People have been asking about this a lot (and for years, now), so I put together a repository with all the code you'll need, an optional, simplified set of helper functions, and documentation and examples.

Edit. 

Note that I just finished this. There might be bugs.

i don't think your link is an actual sound file.

When I click it it sends me to a webpage, not a file. You need to get the actual file's url.

Edit: first two lines: if you mean the comments, no you don't need them.
