Description: Twins Amy and Jonas just found a dog- or did he find them? Either way, Rukus has a magical secret – he’s about to take them to a whole new world. Equal parts thrilling, breathtaking, and inspiring, Raising a Rukus is an animated adventure like no other. With cutting edge “branching narratives,” choose which character’s journey you want to follow by a simple gaze with your eyes.

Jump right into a magical, rollercoaster journey through a prehistoric world! Come along for the ride with Jonas and Amy as the river propels you, dinosaurs chase you, and Rukus delights you! Raising a Rukus is the first episode of the groundbreaking new franchise from the Academy Award Winning Production Designer of Avatar and the Director of Maleficent.

Review: Raising A Rukus is a short 3D animation done the right way. It’s not too long, but not too short either. It contains mild peril, lovable characters and even a dash of excitement. But above all that is has great 3D effects and beautiful smooth animation from start to finish. OK, so there is no interactive elements or any control over the movement of the animation, but for a few quid, you have yourself a bedtime story that will be different each time your little one watches it because there is always something new to discover as there is always multiple things going on in each scene. Sure, we have all seen short 3D animation done before in VR, but never this well.
