Garry's popular and astounding enormo-sandbox mod will soon be available through Steam for a price, as reported in The Steam Review. The move is an interesting and perhaps surprising one that's sure to divide opinions (hey, if charging for expansion packs will draw flames then this sure will).
Those who have said in the past 'I would pay for Garry's mod' (such as me) will now get to carry out their proposal. Personally, I think it's justified, but I predict a riot in the comments section. Cue controversy!"Garry’s Mod, the Source-powered physics sandbox famed across the games industry, is to be sold over Steam for $10 US (convert), with profits split 50/50 between Garry and his team of contributors and Valve. What is currently known as version 9.1 will lose its number and become the initial paid release, while the current version (9.04) will remain as a free demo. All updates will be free. The sanctioned selling of full, third-party mods is new territory for the games industry, and with no sign of Black Cat’s Alien Swarm: Infested it seems that Garry’s Mod will be the first to cross the line."
