Pinewood Island [otome][GxB][mystery|horror|romance]

** ~Out Now!~ **

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 play as Delilah, who must decide where to focus her 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.

This sounds really interesting! And, I'm really liking the look and sound of the love interests. The art is something a bit different :)

What you have planned for it sounds like it'll make a great VN! Looking forward to playing the demo!

♡ Hey ! I really like the concept of this as well as the art so I thought I'd leave a little something on my impressions. Also, if you are still looking for a beta tester, I am available and interested ! ♡

1. How do you feel about the potential love interests? Who's your favorite and why?
I think they all have something about them, but from the looks of them only, I tend to think my favorite will be Matt; I am a sucker for heavily tattooed guys.

2. Are you interested in playing this game, why and why not?
I am SO pumped for this game. I loooove muder mysteries and combining one with an otome game? It's just the perfect combinaison for me. And the character design is just gorgeous.

Oh? A murder mystery with adult themes? Sold!

What kind of gameplay can we expect regarding solving the murder mystery and balancing our relationships? Is it traditional VN-style or do want to break way from the norm and maybe do a day-planner with fixed events? Or knowledge stats?

as days go by you can make choices that dictate what happens that day. Some days you can explore and look for clues, or spend time with someone, or try to keep everyone calm. There are clues you can uncover, and you can prevent most of the deaths if you're careful, or focus on one of the guys, or try to do all three.

I'm working on adding more content overall thanks to some great beta testers.

Sexbomb is a big part of that, lol viewtopic.php?f=62&t=35637


I'm still working really hard on the game everyone! adding lots of content and there will be more endings~
Just wanted to post a quick little update. I work on the game just about everyday! I'm really excited to eventually be able to share a demo once all the sprites are completed and maybe some/all the BGs > <

Here are some WIP screenshots! (currently reconsidering GUI)

I've got another beta out to my beta testers (<3), and I'm currently waiting on the next three sprites(Sexbomb) and some BG art(BunnyVoid)!

I've also straightened up the gallery after obsessive study of the renpy documentation lol

Yes! I love how he came out. Sexbomb took some liberties with his design and I love how it came out.
