Hello, good night.

I'm a little confused about the Houdini Indie license showed on Steam:

I'm looking into renting Houdini, the Indie version specifically, and I found this on Steam:



What does that means?. Is it gonna be 351.99 PER month after one year if I take that first option?

Thanks

I don't know why anyone would buy Houdini through steam? It's $269.00 per-year directly from SideFX.

Thats not really the point, sorry.

My point is if that information is correct. Is it gonna be 351.99 per month? or is just a mistake on the steam webpage?

That must be a mistake for sure, I don't use steam but take a look at the image I see:

This appears to be a typo on Steam, thanks for pointing it out. I will contact Valve about fixing it. Houdini Indie on Steam is billed on a annual basis, monthly billing is not currently available. So you will be billed the full price of Houdini Indie when you purchase and then billed annually when the license renews.

That's $269 per year in U.S. dollars. His steam quote is in $Cdn
Buying directly through SideFX would give the same price as steam after the exchange rate is applied.
