Allegorithmic Goes Rent-to-Own with Substance Live

New Service Lets Users Pay for Substance Products in Monthly Installments with No Feature Limitations or Subscriptions; Previewing New Product Line at GDC Booth 212

GDC 2015, San Francisco, CA – March 3, 2015 – Today,  Allegorithmic solves the subscription or buy debate by offering a better way: rent-to-own. With Substance Live, users can now get the complete Substance toolset for $19.90/month with no feature limitation. Each payment goes towards 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.

“Options provide breathing room,” said Dr. Sébastien Deguy, founder and CEO of Allegorithmic. “With Substance Live, we wanted to rethink how people pay for software. If it’s only for a project, what if they only needed to pay for that time? If they want to own it, why can’t that process be more affordable? Substance Live answers these questions.”

At GDC, Allegorithmic will be in Booth #212 showcasing demos of new Substance products and hosting 3 days of presentations from artists at Dreamworks Animation, Ubisoft Montreal, Relic Entertainment, Rust Ltd., and others. For their full GDC schedule, click  here.
