Garry’s Mod is a sandbox physics game that originally started as a mod for Half-Life. It was Garry’s answer to the lack of user creativity in most games back then. In Garry’s Mod, you can do almost anything you want, from building contraptions with ragdolls and weld them together to making an entire city using nothing but prefabricated objects like trees or cars. Today it has grown into its own stand-alone product which includes new tools (including ways to animate models) and assets from Garry’s previous projects such as Half-life: Deathmatch Classic, Counter-Strike: Source, Half-Life 2, etc.
The game is still very active and popular. Even though it’s been almost 15 years since the release, new content is being created constantly. You can buy Garry’s Mod on Steam for $19.99 (or your regional equivalent) or you can play Garry’s Mod for free if you own any Source-based games including Half-Life, Counter-Strike, Half-Life: Deathmatch, or Day of Defeat.
Due to the large number of game modes and add-ons, which the community has created, there are endless possibilities of what you can do with Garry’s Mod. The game has been used to create any imaginable scenario from simple first-person shooters, through horror games, and even role-playing video games such as the popular Dungeons & Dragons series by recording the screen and using a microphone for voice acting.
Garry’s Mod has had over 40 million registered users and almost 800,000 unique players every month. It started as Garry just wanting to recreate the source engine for his own amusement but eventually, he decided to share with other people and Garry’s Mod was born. Being 15 years old, Garry’s Mod is one of the most popular games on Steam and it shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon, as long as there are people interested in creating new content for the game.
