Garry's Mod Sells More Copies Than Few

Reading Qt3 I was pleased to hear news about Garry's Mod. It's been on Steam for two years. And it's sold... well, take it away, Garry...

The popularity took me and Valve by surprise. As soon as it went on sale the steam servers were temporary knocked out, due to the demand. On the first day it sold 5,729 copies. Wowzer. I kind of expected that it would sell a big number of copies for the first day, then sell very few after that. I was kind of wrong, because over the next 2 years it went on to sell 312,541 copies. Which has totally knocked my socks off.

Gosh. 312,541! Sock-removing success indeed. And success born of a reasonable ten-dollar price and feeding into gamers' endless desire to move G-man into homosexual trysts for comedy screenshots is the best kind of success. Still available, if you want to be 313,542 or similar. And here's some things people have made in G-mod from their front page alone. Flying gnomes, etc!

The Gnome Tornado Gun!

The Laser-stool!

Er... Punching!

Hurrah!
