Half-Life 2 Garry’s Mod sells 4000 copies an hour in Steam sale

News: Garry’s Mod, the eight-year-old Half-Life 2 sandbox playground, has sold at a rate of 4000 copies an hour during its Steam flash sale.

And counting, of course – the Steam flash sale which has seen Garry’s Mod drop to the copper-fodder price of £1.49 doesn’t wrap up until 5pm today, GMT. But according to its eponymous creator Garry Newman, the sandbox mod is currently travelling at 4000 copies-per-hour.

Newman revealed as much in a tweet this morning. His tone of surprise can be attributed to the fact that Garry’s Mod was first released for Half-Life 2 in 2004, when it became a perennial source of screenshots in the pages of PC Gamer UK.

That was my introduction to the mod, but its exploitation of Source’s then-revolutionary physics engine has made it a favourite among tinkerers and machinima creators the world over.

At this rate, there’ll be no need for the creative piracy solution the game has relied on in recent years.
