Valve announces plans to distribute a commercial version of Garry's mod for the
Source engine via the Steam
November 27, 2006 - Independent
Software developer Garry Newman and Valve today announce an electronic
distribution agreement for Garry's MOD, the popular software utility downloaded
by hundreds of thousands to create mini-games, many of the most popular movie
shorts on web sites such as YouTube.com, and more.
"The new version has been created from scratch so almost everything has been
revised and re-invented," said Garry Newman, creator of Garry's MOD. "It has a
bunch of new tools to play with (winches, hydraulics and hoverballs), totally
new spawn menu and a few new Post Processing effects to play with. The great
thing about Steam is that I can update really regularly, really easily - which
is something I plan on doing - so expect more tools/gamemodes/stuff to come."
The first commercial release of Garry's MOD will be made available on November
29, 2006. Since a Source-based product is required to run Garry's MOD, Valve
will be offering a special bundle of Garry's MOD plus Counter-Strike: Source for
just $24.95. For those who already own a Source-based game, Garry's MOD will be
sold separately for just $9.95.
