Rust developer Facepunch Studios announced this weekend that they're making an arcade-shooter called Riftlight. This announcement was not well-received by many gamers.
Unlike PC gamers, console owners can't buy games while they're still in alpha or beta. That may change on the PS4 in the future, though.
Newman decided that in order to make his dream project come true, he needed a new engine; a bigger engine that could handle his growing dreams that became too large to fit within the confines of the Source Engine. Hence, Rust.
At first, things seemed like they might go the way of DayZ with the console versions being a long ways off from release, but Sony's head of developer relations seems to really want the DayZ meets Minecraft clone on the PS4 as soon as possible.
One part of the trio of indie juggernauts has finally joined its brothers and crossed the million-plus barrier. Joining its indie compatriots Starbound and DayZ, Garry Newman's Rust has sold more than a million digital copies.
Rust haters can no longer call it a DayZ clone. Facepunch Studios has decided to remove zombies from the survival game's world.
The alpha version of survival game Rust has more than its fair share of cheaters. Designer Garry Newman says that stopping these cheats are a "huge priority" for the development team at Facepunch Studios.
Rust drops you in a field with a torch, a stone and some bandages. There's no tutorial or objective marker to follow. So, what the hell do you do?
Two of the best-selling games on Steam right now are Rust and the standalone version of DayZ. Both games are multiplayer survival simulators, with players scavenging for supplies to stay alive while fighting off A.I. and human enemies. DayZ and Rust offer very different experiences, though.
The multiplayer survival game Rust is off to a strong launch. Since being released through Steam Early Access two weeks ago, over 150,000 copies have been sold worldwide.
Warning: The following game is an alpha release and is subject to user rage, griefing, ego-rape and loss of progress due to bugs, glitches, errors and incomplete game code. With that disclaimer out of the way, I invite you to explore Garry Newman's (of Gmod fame) latest creation, Rust.
