When I searched “Welcome to Pine Point” on Google Scholar, only four sources have cited it, and they are all listed below. In addition to these scholarly sources, I also included the website, Pine Point Revisited. This is the website that was discussed at the end of Welcome to Pine Point. [HD]
Harley, D., & Lachman, R. (2014). CHI PLAY 2014: The bellman: Subtle interactions in a linear narrative. Proceedings of the First ACM SIGCHI Annual Symposium on Computer-Human Interaction in Play, 343-346.
This source is challenging to find information about, because it was published in the conference proceedings of the 2014 ACM SIGCHI Annual Symposium on Computer-Human Interaction in Play, held in Canada. It also seems as though the PDF needs to be purchased to be viewed in full. However, the abstract says that the paper presents an internet adaption of a novella and it details how interaction affects narrative.

This 2013 Reuters Institute Fellowship Paper is a 42-page document that describes how stories are told through the use of tablets. The major sections of the paper include the background of tablets, key characteristics of storytelling on tablets, a comparative analysis with genres such as newspaper apps, and a look at the future of tablet storytelling. Welcome to Pine Point is discussed briefly at the end of the report, and is used as an example of multimedia narration.
Pine Point Revisited. (2015). Retrieved from http://pinepointrevisited.homestead.com/
This website was created and maintained by former Pine Point resident Richard Cloutier, who used to be “The Bully” and is now referred to as “The Protector.” The website has not been updated since 2015, but it seems to offer more pictures and history, in addition to what was provided in Welcome to Pine Point.
Pope, J. (2013). The way ahead: The teaching of hyper-narrative at Bournemouth University. New Writing: The International Journal for the Practice and Theory of Creative Writing, 10(2), 206-218.
This article is aimed at writers and teachers who want to learn about creative writing and its connections to new-media. The author also wants to bring awareness to “hyper-narrative,” which includes more sophisticated multi-media writing and design tools that can be used to create interactive narratives. The article discusses ways to create multi-media stories and describes software to do so.
Wong, A. (2015). The whole story, and then some: ‘Digital storytelling’ in evolving museum practice. MW2015: Museums and the Web 2015. Retrieved from http://mw2015.museumsandtheweb.com/paper/the-whole-story-and-then-some-digital-storytelling-in-evolving-museum-practice/
The author explores digital storytelling and argues that it is actually unproductive. The abstract says that Wong does argue for museums to invest in “developing staff as storytellers with fluency in the narrative capacities afforded by the interactions between people, space, content, and technology.” The abstract also mentions that museums also need to think about storytelling as spatial; mobile; location, context, and audience aware; interactive; transmedial; and intermedial.
