Garry’s Mod Sells Over 1 Million Copies!


Hey all! Looks like Garry’s Mod has sold over one million copies. Since its official release on the 26th of November, 2006, the mod’s had a slow and steady climb in sales over the years, with some spikes in sales here and there. The community has helped vastly with this mod, and as such, the mod has a large community centered around it, often making machinimas, comics and various fan-made content.

Garry’s even shared a sale graph with us, showing the highs and low of the GMod sales:

Old Garry was planning on releasing a big secret update after selling one million copies, but sales exceeded that number before he finished with the update. Looks like this update’s going to be pretty huge.

Valve Officially Attending Gamescom, Dota 2 Invitational Tournament To Be Held?


It would not be much of a surprise to see Valve attending Gamescom this year, having been absent from E3, of which has recently been made official on the convention website. But what would be surprising is that they are, according to a handful of sources, going to be showing off Dota 2 for the first time in public — but in the form of an invitational tournament, or a “promotional tournament”, as they put it.

Valve recently mailed several professional Dota players invitations to a “Dota 2 International Invitational being held in Cologne, Germany” which will, according to the letter, “mark the first public presentation of Dota 2”. On top of all of that, a thread on GosuGamers tells that there will be a prize pool in the tens of thousands of US Dollars, as well as beta invites for the players involved (of which has been going on for some time now with friends and family of Valve).
