This is the game, hope somebody can help me https://www.dropbox.com/s/0l04wsjvngx37f7/TanSoloOtroMonstruo.html?dl=0

The problem is that when I try to play it on Chrome, the sound doesn't work. I'm pretty noob at this, so I was hoping somebody here could help me get over this problem.

Many modern web-browsers (especially those used on mobile devices) now require that a end-user interacts with the current web-page at least once before the web-browser will allow a media file to autoplay. The Desktop release of Chrome is now one of these web-browser.

One of the reasons for this (newish) restriction is to stop a malicious web-page being viewed on a mobile device from automatically downloading a very large media file, thus causing the web-page to hang and the needless consumption of the end-user's data allowance.

The solution to this issue is simple:
1. Make the current 'first' Passage of your story/game the 'second' passage.
2. Add a new first Passage to your story, and make it some sort of general information (welcome, credits, acknowledgements, etc..) screen.
3. Add a link from the new 'first' passage to the new 'second' passage, this way the Reader will need to interact with the web-page at least once before any autoplay media starts.

Chrome sometimes prevents sound from playing automatically. Look at the same question being asked here.

You can try the playWhenPossible() method instead of play() if you're still using HAL.
