Rust will offer refunds as they stop shipping Linux client

Multiplayer survival game Rust will soon stop shipping its Linux client and offer refunds to those who have played using it. They’ve penned a blog post explaining that it had become a “cheater’s sanctuary,” and that a September update addressing performance and security not being supported on the OS was the final straw, despite believing that supporting Linux is still “the right thing to do.”

Chippy is a new twin-stick bullet hell from the devs behind Rust

Facepunch Studios - them behind Garry's Mod, Clatter, and Rust - have just released Chippy, a minimalist, colourful twin-stick bullet hell shoot 'em up. Can a bullet hell really be called minimalist? I guess that leaves more room for the actual bullets. I'm also guessing it makes some space for all these gigantic bosses Facepunch have left lying around everywhere. I probably could have tacked…

Feature: Don't Fretta 'bout it

Have You Played… Garry’s Mod (on Fretta servers)?

I'm going to make Have You Played history, and do a game wot we've already done. I know! But this is roughly the 1054th entry (going by our terrifying spreadsheet), and Brendy said we're allowed to revisit games if we've got a good reason to [I'll let this one slide. But never again - Brendan]. He's already asked if you've played Garry's Mod. I'm asking…

This sneaky solo Rust heist is a treat to watch

The post-apocalyptic murderisland of Rust is one of those virtual lands I'm always interested in hearing good stories from, even if I'm unlikely to visit it myself (because it is a murderisland). The best I've heard in a while is a heist committed by YouTuber "Welyn", who set out on a revenge mission to sneak into a clan's heavily-fortified base and rob it blind all…

Rust studio’s robo-tactics game Clatter whirs out

Into The Breach was fine and all, but it didn't have nearly enough robots. Not proper ones. Fortunately, Facepunch - the Rust and Garry's Mod devs - have made a game about fighty non-oxidised robo-pals. Clatter pits robo-teams against each other in primarily multiplayer matches, playing a turn-based future-sport put on for crowds of smiley-faced cubes. I've had one game so far, and it seems…

Rust studio go turn-based tactical with Clatter next month

Facepunch Studios may be best known for Garry's Mod and Rust but for years they've experimented with other games, and another is about ready to launch. The turn-based tactical robotfights of Clatter will arrive in December, Facepunch have announced, sending bots to bash each other to bits in arena battles. Facepunch say the focus is multiplayer but it will have a singleplayer career mode too,…

Rust adds hot air balloons and some explosive ways to pop them

From zombie survival to weird naked cave-jerk game to hot air balloons and anti-air missiles, the evolution of Rust has been a strange one to behold. Facepunch's previous few updates to the sandbox survival craft n' shooter have focused on new and expanded NPC factions and their territory, but the latest has its head in the clouds. Scattered around Rust's plains are pre-assembled hot air…

Rust’s new Bandit Town update adds more NPCs and wipes the servers

It's a scary day for Darwinist survival sandbox shooter Rust. For the first time in a long while, everyone's starting out fresh. Today's major new update - introducing a whole new NPC-run town - is accompanied by a universal server wipe. Clans are forced to reform, projects to be rebuilt, and reputations to be restored. It's anarchy out there, and I don't think Rust's players…

Rust’s Compound patch makes its apocalypse a bit nicer

Despite Rust sitting in my Steam library for what feels like forever, I've never quite drummed up the courage to dive into its singularly brutal apocalyptic world of angry naked people working their way back out of the stone age in order to shoot each other in the face. This weekend I may finally give it a spin, as its latest update adds a well…

Rust adds boats, improves forests, deploys choppers

Sandbox murderthon Rust has added driveable motorboats in its latest update, elevating it to the highest class of game: one where you and your pals can pootle around a giant world singing songs until hubris causes a crash. The update's also good news for landlubbers who'd prefer to lead a woodland hike, as it improves and expands forests. I'm sure those are the only big…

Feature: A farewell to arms

Rust review

“Here, have some arms”. I’ve been alive for about 2 minutes, and the first player I’ve met in Rust has just chucked a pair of severed human arms at my feet. “I found them on a corpse just over there. I...may have killed him. But then I wasn’t hungry, so you can have them. Here’s some animal fat too.” Rust is a strange game.

A Rust review is incoming…

...but not till early next week. As Early Access ended, there was a server wipe yesterday evening so I'm going to play a bit more now that I can build up my blueprint collection and base knowing that everything isn't going to be snatched away from me. Rust's world of multiplayer survival can be harsh at the best of times, so it's only fair that…

Rust is out of early access – here are its best patch notes

The nasty, brutish and (often) short survival game Rust has finally crept out of its early access cave today and is sauntering around firing shotgun shells of joy into the sky and also into bodies of people it doesn’t know and doesn’t trust. That’s a simplistic reduction of a five-year process which has seen this Prometheus of the survival genre go from being a janky…

Feature: Interview

Rust’s designer on casting off the early access ‘crutch’

In Rust, everything comes from a single rock. From rifles to radiation suits, it’s all thanks to a naked caveman hitting things with a big stone. Today, if you were to examine a family tree of the survival genre, you’d see Subnautica and No Man's Sky sitting on the same level. Distant cousins who can’t stand to be in the same room as each other.…

Rust leaving early access February 8th, then development will continue

After four years of nude murders, multiplayer survival sandbox Rust will be declared done enough to leave early access on February 8th. Development will still continue, mind, with future plans including improving farming, adding vehicles from cars to hot air balloons, radios, surrendering, and oh so much more. However, the game has settled into form enough over its time in early access that Facepunch Studios…

Feature: The rule of Rust

Nasty, brutish and short – Rust and the state of nature

Facepunch’s violent, vile Rust isn’t an obvious starting place to learn about philosophy. You might explore virtue ethics with the Ultima series, or free will with Bioshock, or concepts of self and moral worth with Soma. Even when looking at political philosophy, you’d perhaps be more inclined to stop by the totalitarian bureaucracy of Paper’s Please, or Crusader Kings II’s massive variety of governmental forms,…

Rust gets spoOoOoky with Halloween frights

Halloween's timing is a bit weird this year, with the preceding weekend taking the bloodsoaked brunt of the fiendish frenzy, but video games still remember and will still be here for us. Rust is already a game where nude fiends ritually sacrifice each other, making it unsettling at the best of times, but now it's proper spooky too. The early access survival sandbox's latest update…

Rust introduces sitting down and frozen lakes

Rust [official site] now has the ability to let players sit in chairs. I feel like, despite my own lack of Rust experience, sitting in chairs is not a core part of the Rust survival game experience. I was kind of hoping that the game was taking an unexpected detour into the ancient sport of trying out furniture while a sales assistant hovers nearby but…
