Sengoku Akira is having a very strange, and increasingly horrifying day. And it's about to take a turn for the worse. One moment he's standing in a jumbo-jet that is flying him and his classmates back home after a class trip, and the next, he's in a jungle, surrounded by some of the strangest and deadliest animals to have lived over the last million or so years of prehistory. Creatures that even his vivid imagination couldn't have invented to fuel his nightmares.

Now Sengoku and the other passengers need to find a way to survive in a savage wilderness, using only their wits and the few possessions they were carrying. But like all metaphorical Edens, this world has its share of snakes and, unfortunately, many of them came on the plane.

From official release/information:

Product Description: Danger and action abound after Akira Sengoku and his classmates crash-land on a deserted island while flying home from a class trip. The island doesn't exist on any maps but that's not even the strangest part: the animals they find on the island are prehistoric beasts that are supposed to have been extinct for thousands of years! Now Akira and his friends are in danger as the island's residents start eyeing the humans for their next meal. Will they ever solve the mystery of the island and find their way home?
