Garry's Mod racks up a million downloads

Big update planned for Half Life 2 mod.

Garry's Mod has passed the one million downloads mark, six years after it was first made public.

"This is a pretty big deal for me considering this all started off as a tiny tiny modification about six years ago," wrote creator Garry Newman on his blog. "This is more than I could have ever expected or wished for!"

Newman added that he had hoped to have a "big secret update" ready for when the milestone was passed, but it's running behind schedule.

"Anyway – thanks to everyone that's contributed to Garry's Mod – whether that be directly by dedicating your time to creating new content for other players or indirectly by playing and enjoying all that Garry's Mod has to offer!"

Garry's Mod is a physics sandbox 'game' modded from Half-Life 2. The $10 download lets you manipulate and mess around with objects and characters from most Source-powered Valve games.
