Maru VR received the grant for the implementation of a development plan for creative entrepreneurs from the Estonian Business and Innovation Agency. The aim of the project is to develop the VR title “Bootstrap Island”, improve and develop internal business processes and implement various marketing activities for the new VR game. The budget of the project is 142 842.59 EUR and the grant 99 989.81 EUR.

Bootstrap Island is an unique take on a ‘Robinson Crusoe’ style storybook tale of a shipwrecked sailor surviving on a remote island. We’re designing this game specifically for virtual reality, and focusing on creating immersive gameplay, natural interactions with objects and the environment, complimented by a compelling narrative.

Players are tasked with surviving as long as they can in this intense rouguelike survival game. They must quickly learn to adapt and survive on a mystical and ruthless island, managing their time wisely exploring for food, drink, weapons, making a fire, all the while encountering ferocious beasts and tribal natives.
