Note from the Developer:

In 2016 I sat down on my bed with a notebook and a pen, scribbling down thousands of ideas for Secrets Untold. It was the first video game idea I had committed to making a reality. Though, as it was my first game EVER, I hadn't any idea how much work would go into making it and I made the scope of this free game way too big. Team member after team member left, my studies caught up with me and I didn't have the time, resources, or knowledge to keep pursuing the project. Despite the graphical updates I managed to do 2 years later with the 2018 demo release, the game still wasn't up to par with my standards. I was using backgrounds in various styles that didn't match the sprite art, the music was all creative commons stuff and the writing needed serious updating. In 2019, I decided to gather a team for nanoreno in hopes of finally finishing the game once and for all. I ended up rewriting the 100k word script- resulting in a short 35k word kinetic novel utilizing old recorded voiced lines. An entire OST was composed for it, new backgrounds were acquired, and the sprites were redone.

Though, things had come up in my life that prevented me from finishing the project. In 2020, with more time on my hands, I decided to rewrite some scenes, take on some new voice actors, and code the game (aside from the gui!) myself. Secrets Untold is not meant to be the next big thing. It is simply a labor of love. You have no idea how near and dear to my heart SU is, and just how much releasing this means to me. While I'm aware of some of its shortcomings, I am still incredibly proud of myself and the people who helped make it a reality. This is truly a dream release and the wonderful people mentioned above have helped me get this game to you!
