Last year I featured PlayCanvas in the Closer Look at game engine series. It’s a power HTML5 powered 3D game engine that was saddled with a rather confusing pricing model. Pricing previously looked like:
Then on top of these prices there was an additional tier of pricing for “Organizations”. It certainly wasn’t an ideal setup. Thankfully they have streamlined from 7 different price points to 3, while increasing the resources of each tier. The new pricing looks like:

The gotcha with this tier is it requires a PlayCanvas splashscreen. Finally there is the organization tier which has no custom branding, up to 10GB in space and has additional project management options. Speaking of those options, many are new to this release:
An organization offers you a convenient way to manage users and projects for businesses or for larger projects. With an organization you can specify multiple administrators who can add and remove users with project based permissions. Additionally, organization plans come with a convenient single invoice for your business.
