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.
Pinewood Island is a visual novel released by Jaime Scribbles Games in 2017. It can be found on Steam or here.
Tropes found in Pinewood Island are

- Amicable Exes: Susan and Carl used to date, and they still care about each other platonically.
- Closed Circle: Because the trip was supposed to last for a month, there is no possibility for rescue until the month is up because of the lack of ways to contact the mainland.
- Teacher/Student Romance: Susan and Professor Kent are romantically involved, though he's not particularly faithful.
