Garry's Mod creator Garry Newman is working on another game with a tinge of a creative bent, titled Rust. The multiplayer survival game pits you and your friends against the elements, including hunger, cold, and aggressive enemies.
PC Gamer reports that your activities include finding food to stay energized, making clothes to avoid freezing to death, and constructing shelter out of your own raw materials to protect you from monsters. In other words, it's got a little DayZ and a smattering of Minecraft. The game sports zombies right now, but Newman says those are placeholders and will be replaced by some other kind of NPC, eventually.
The official site has details of how to join the alpha, if you want to get in on the ground floor of this one. Chances are your simulated painful, difficult existence won't be nearly as hilarious as Garry's Mod.
