Rust has sold over 150,000 copies on Steam Early Access for Garry’s Mod creators Facepunch Studios

Rust, the survival game like DayZ with construction elements, has exceeded all sales expectations, Garry Newman – the founder of Facepunch Studios – explained in a recent blog post. Rust first entered alpha back in June last year, but since arriving on Steam Early Access in December it has done exceptionally well, selling over 150,000 copies in its first two weeks alone.

In the blog post, Newman explains:

We have been knocked out by how well Rust has sold. Especially for an Early Access, unfinished alpha. Especially that we have warned people not to buy it. And especially because Rust isn’t even a 100th of the game we are envisioning.

It very much feels like we have been given all of this money – but we haven’t yet earned it. That’s something we have to do now.

As mentioned, Rust is currently available through Steam Early Access, and by all accounts it is a lot of fun – although like other survivalist games, suffering from a bout of hacks and griefers.

Yeah awesome game except for that since its alpha release it still has huge animation issues among a very big lack of content and support for any kind of alliance which is really well unavoidable unless you constantly want to die.


Well its an Alpha, you brought it knowing this, however its still nothing compared to the rampant hackers


and mic support not working for everyone, and being full of tons of douchebags


Joined the “Australia #1″ server tonight, played for less then an hour, just got a shelter and sleeping bag built and then got banned from that server for no apparent reason.

I hadn’t been in any combat with anyone and in fact only 1 person had come anywhere near me and they ran off shortly after.

So its good to see there are admins who are just as shittastic as hackers.
