HUMMINGBIRD LICENSING FAQ
Hummingbird Licensing is done on a per-project basis where a unique License Key, granting you access to your licensed products, is generated for each project.
A Hummingbird per-product License is unique and is tied to your Licensee Title. It cannot be transferred or shared. Doing so breaches the terms of the License Agreement. The only exceptions to this are to provide the Hummingbird License Key to members working on the licensed project, as per the terms of the License Agreement.
The Hummingbird License is tied to a specific Licensed Licensee Title, so it cannot be used to create new titles. Doing so breaches the terms of the License Agreement. If you require to use Hummingbird in another project, please get a trial license for the new project.
Team and Studio Hummingbird Product Licenses are project-based. They are not individual or “per seat” licenses, so for those licenses, No.
Budget is defined as total cost: proceeds, salaries for all of the team, consulting, tools, assets, etc. at time of shipping, for the main title and all planned DLCs. If the project is still in development calculate the best estimate of the total project budget when completed.
We do not require the particular numbers or the company books and accounting details. You have to make sure that your budget meets the requirements of the License Agreement all the time.
