Rust Is Making Really Rather A Lot Of Money

By John Walker on January 20th, 2014.

Over the years of the existence of Garry’s Mod, it’s been a fun game to try to admiringly calculate just how rich it’s made creator Garry Newman. Since he’s been especially open with sales figures, and since the game is selling double the number of copies with each passing year, it means that currently he has most of the money that exists. And as the sales continue to increase exponentially, he’ll soon have infinity money, at which point money will be declared Over, and we’ll have to start again with some new system, where finances are based on emotional exchanges or something. So bearing all this in mind, with his disclosure to GI.biz that in one month Rust has already made 40% of GMod’s lifetime profits, be prepared for a worldwide financial collapse.

If Girl Talk Made Games: DoomRL And GMDoom

For the brave, there are two Doom mashups that you should be excited about.

By Alec Meer on March 6th, 2013.

Like a boss

The amount of money a game/software developer makes shouldn’t really be the first thing you say about them, but sometimes you’ve got to make an exception. For instance, Garry’s Mod developer Garry Newman, who recently revealed that his physics-abusing, face-mutilating Half-Life 2 mod has brought in $22 million to date. It’s about time he and Notch had a riches-off, I think. While I don’t think anyone could claim he’s not in the Sickeningly Wealthy bracket, he does claim that the lion’s share of this doesn’t reach the Gmod team’s gold-lined pockets.

Disgusting Limb Manipulation In GMOD

By Craig Pearson on November 11th, 2011.

Ew. EW! Ew! Ee! Ew! Ew!
There’s a moment in this video of a new Gmod feature where I start to feel sorry for Breen. He looks at the camera, just as Garry starts to pluck at his very bones, with such sad resignation. His dignity gone, debased for our entertainment.
