Power and Creativity for 2D Gaming

With over 25 years of experience in 2D animation and working with major animation studios globally to bring their ideas and amazing stories to life; Toon Boom has made its mark in creative storytelling. If the past couple of years has taught us anything, it is that today does not define us, it is our ability to be agile and adapt to tomorrow that counts the most. For Harmony 21 we are broadening our horizons and sharing some of our 2D animation capabilities as well as some new features specifically designed for game development. Unlimited 2D drawing functionality, limitless animation features and one click for animation import into Unity; We want to show you what Harmony can do for your 2D game development.

Key Benefits

« Harmony allows our artists to draw, rig and animate our characters all in a single application. This speeds up the animation process and allows us to produce better results. The Harmony Gaming SDK then allows us to import the animations into Unity at the click of a button.  »

« I find Toonboom to be the most flexible animation software for crafting non pixel art sprites. It has the tools for both complex cut-out animation and classic hand drawn animation which allows us to approach every animation in the most impactful and time efficient way. »
