Pinewood Island

Pinewood Island

Story

A group of students, their Professor and his T.A. arrive on a secluded island for a 4 week long science program. The plan is to study the natural flora on the island while earning double the credit.

This is interrupted when the Professor is killed after an impromptu beach party. When they try to call for help they find that the phones do not work. There is no boat, and no way to contact the mainland.

A charter boat isn’t set to arrive for them until the 4 weeks are over.

You must decide where to focus your energy, and who to focus it on. Mistakes can be deadly.

Some of the students start to crack under the pressure. Try to survive and solve the murder while potentially indulging in romance.

Visual Novel Press-Kits

Why you should make them, and what they are.

A press-kit is something that a lot of indie developers do, in fact it is something a lot of businesses do.

If you would like a more in-depth look at press-kits and how to make an amazing one, you should check out this website, this Reddit post, this video, or this video.

Why should I make one? I’m just a small visual novel developer?

The Story:

A lot of bad things happen at once, and you find yourself trying to take control of a life that has run off without you. While trying to piece everything back together again you receive news that an obscure relative has died, and that they left you an old rundown house. With nothing better to do you pack up what’s left of your life and head out to the tiniest backwoods place you’ve ever set eyes on. Home to more churches than stop signs, and hotter than hell, you try to make this weird nosy new place your home.

Soon work on the house will end, and then you’ll need to make up your mind; will you stay in this town, or will you take to the road again?

And will one of the four people you’ve become acquainted with sway your decision?
