All about differences between Animaze Plus 23 and Animaze Pro 23 and the Animaze Subscription Service
What is the difference between Animaze Plus/Pro 23 and the Animaze subscription service?
TL:DR: Up until August 31st, 2023, Animaze Plus/Pro 23 DLC, and the Plus/Pro Animaze subscriptions are 100% identical.
Full details: Animaze has two main ways of being licensed:
- via its Live Service version, which has a free service tier for casual users, and optional paid subs (Plus or Pro) for unlocking its full power.
- via buying one of its yearly standalone iterations as a one-time DLC purchase: a perpetual license to use that yearly standalone iteration, without a sub-fee, forever (these versions are, for now, exclusive to Steam).
Use which one you like best.
The key difference between the two is that everyone on the Live Service version receives new feature and content updates in an ongoing manner, while the yearly iterations are “snapshots” of how Animaze was in that respective year, so the yearly iterations feature set will forever be the feature set corresponding to the year in its name.
- Animaze 22 gets all features we’ve built from 2020 to 2022
- Animaze 23 gets all features we’ve built from 2020 to 2023
- …and so on.
Worth noting that the Live Service subscribers who are on a valid yearly sub at the time when the yearly iteration goes out, get that yearly iteration too at no additional cost, to use forever, (even if their subscription then lapses). So even if in one year you decide to cancel the Animaze yearly sub, as a thank you that you've committed to a full year, you'll still get the Animaze of that year to use forever.
