SAN FRANCISCO – Often users are torn between the subscription or buy option. Allegorithmic solves this debate by offering rent-to-own.
With Substance Live, users can now get the complete Substance tool set for $19.90/month with no feature limitation. Each payment goes toward a full license, and the plan can be paused at any time, providing maximum flexibility for professional texture artists.
The latest versions of Substance Designer 5, Substance Painter 1.3 and Bitmap2Materials 3 can be purchased individually or as part of a full set. Substance Live will also give users access to special offers, exclusive services and beta builds, even after they’ve paid off their license.
As the months go on, payment status as well as new product updates will be available on the Substance Live dashboard, accessible anywhere there’s a browser. Bigger payments can be made at any time, so artists always have the freedom to treat their account as they wish.
Substance Live is available now and can be accessed on allegorithmic.com, Steam or the Unity asset store. The indie license is $19.90/month for 16 months, while the pro version is $64.90. Indies can also pay an upfront cost of $299 for the complete Substance tool set.
At GDC, Allegorithmic will be in Booth #212 showcasing demos of new Substance products and hosting three days of presentations.
