European Commission Grant

Bootstrap island vulcano maru vr

Maru VR is the first Estonian game studio to receive the grant from the European Commission for game development (CREA-MEDIA-2022-DEVVGIM). The maximum grant was 150 000 euros and it helps to cover 50% of development costs for the development of our upcoming virtual reality game ‘Bootstrap Island’.

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.
