Create beautiful scenes fast with Gaia 2021!
Gaia is a powerful world generation system that creates stunning environments in minutes for mobile, vr, console and desktop.
Gaia gives you the workflow you prefer, from artist driven to fully procedural to deliver simple, fast and pretty terra-forming, texturing, planting and placement for everything from low poly stylized through to high-end photo-realistic environments.
Gaia saves you time, money and heartache by automating the setup of your render pipeline, character, sounds, water, skies, post fx and lighting so that you can be up and running around in your scene in minutes.
Gaia is backed by Canopy , with forums, a library with video and written articles that go over and above to teach you not only about Gaia, but also things like level design, lighting, optimization and more, and you can share your journey with our thriving and helpful community.
Gaia is growing. We are continually adding new Game Ready Levels , Procedural Spawner Packs , Stamp Packs and Micro Biomes that make it easy to create new and interesting variations on awesome. And with GeNa Pro you can further set dress your level to add roads, rivers, lakes, spline-based extrusions, and even sophisticated procedural structures and villages to make your scenes more interesting.
Gaia is AI/ML-enabled. We released Gaia ML as part of the Intel AI Game Dev Toolkit in partnership with Intel, and Gaia 2021 is directly compatible. Grab Gaia ML, and then install Gaia 2021 over the top to get the best of both worlds.
Gaia is used in education, defence, simulations, and a multitude of games such as Zenith, Last Epoch and Crowfall. Even NASA uses Gaia! Gaia has consistently been in the most popular tools on the asset store, and Gaia Pro was awarded \"Best Artistic Tool\" in the 2020 Unity Awards. Gaia Pro 2021 further evolves the platinum standard for world generation.
Gaia turns weeks and months of effort into hours and days, and with your beautiful worlds sorted, you can focus on creating the gameplay that really matters.
Try Gaia 2021 and then upgrade to the raw power of Gaia Pro 2021! The cost of Gaia 2021 is deducted from the cost of Gaia Pro 2021. To see a feature comparison, check out Gaia Pro 2021.
