How the Game was Developed using Houdini:

Castle Defender VR was developed by several SideFX game interns to explore how Houdini can be used to create procedural assets for VR games. The team of interns built everything inside Houdini, including the characters and animations, and then used Houdini Engine to bring the procedural assets into the Unity game engine. This procedural workflow allowed them to easily use and modify the assets in Unity with maximum control and speed.
