About the Game:
A baby was abandoned by her parents when she was born, and left on the steps of Castle Vestis. The life she was originally destined to would never see the light of day. She was raised by the maids in the servants quarters and names Calista. King Rory, despite his valiant efforts, could not keep his son Balder and the orphan girl from meeting. Eventually, the two feel in love and Balder proposed. It was an outrage to the entire Kingdom that young handsome prince would choose love over status. Tensions only seem to rise as the wedding quickly approaches. Three days before the big day, something goes awry, and Calista finds herself fighting for her freedom amongst a web of deceit. Will she trust the stranger from the feared organization, Shadow, who has come to help her? Or will she remain loyal to the prince? Can she find out who she really is, or will her past remain a secret untold?
The game takes place in the medieval land of Aurea. It is a nation plagued by fierce traditionalism. Aurea is made up of several different Kingdoms. Secrets Untold will focus on one Kingdom, Vestis and its royal family, the Parisis, but may mention others. The social hierarchy of Vestis is based solely on namesake. Calista’s surname is unknown, and thus, her power within the Kingdom is nonexistent, despite her relationship with the prince.

I do have a few questions:
What is the preferred resolution, if you have one, for a visual novel?
When playing a game that is voiced, would you prefer the player character be voiced as well?
What other info about the game should I put on this post?
Is there anything you'd like to know specifically about the game?
