Houdini Indie's procedural node-based workflow offers a smarter way to create high quality game art. Houdini technology is used by AAA studios to take their games to the next level and now this procedural power is available FREE to teams participating in the 2021 Global Game Jam®.
As a game jammer, you are faced with the challenge of building visually rich content with limited time and resources. Houdini Indie’s procedural workflow can help you keep up as you automate repetitive tasks, making it easier to quickly generate larger amounts of quality content.
SideFX is pleased to be sponsoring this year’s game jam and is making a FREE 2-month Houdini Indie license available to help jammers get to the finish line faster!
This Houdini Indie for Global Game Jam license offer will expire at 5pm U.S. PST on Sunday, January 31st, 2021. If you'd like to use Houdini Indie for GGJ, be sure to follow the instructions before this date. Request your license as soon as possible so that you have the most time to learn and use Houdini before GGJ starts.
Please note: the two month period starts from when your request is processed, *not* from when you download the software.
Game Jam Pro Tip: Make sure you download and install Houdini Indie and run through some tutorials BEFORE the game jam begins. Game jam time is very precious and you want to be prepared!
