Garry’s Mod’s Garry thanks Minecraft for the success of his mod

Garry's Mod

Garry’s Mod really is the Little Mod That Could, selling over $22 million worth of copies so far. Twenty-two million! Not all of that goes to Garry of course, with Valve taking their cut, and taxes and so on, but you know: dang.

Asked recently by Rock, Paper, Shotgun to what he attributed his success, Garry named a number of things, but most surprisingly perhaps was Minecraft.

“Minecraft. You’d think Minecraft would kill GMod’s popularity… but it’s kind of the opposite,” he said.

“People play Minecraft to death – they love it.. so they go out looking for other games that are a bit like it. Minecraft has attracted a lot of people that aren’t really PC gamers too. They play the game on the 360 or the iPad and everyone tells them that the PC version is better.”

“And of course Steam Sales,” he added.

Every time I launch Garrys mod it’s so different to the time I previously launched it I get all confused. That being said, I launch it maybe once a year, then remember that I’m not overly creative and can’t think of anything to do.

But hey kudos to that guy. It’s a damn impressive game and it’s fun just watching what other people come up with.
