Just how much money has Garry's Mod made in the time it has been released? $30 million and counting. But, what about Facepunch Studios' other successful game, that has been available for much less time? $30.1 million or more.

Facepunch Studios' founder, Garry Newman, broke the news through Twitter yesterday, where he said "Garry's Mod has just broke $30,000,000". He continued: "And if my calculations are correct - we have now officially made more money from Rust than Garry's Mod". Newman said that Rust revenue is approximately just 0.34% more than the sales of Garry's Mod, which makes Rust's sales over $30.1 million so far.

Considering Garry's Mod has been out since December of 2004, and Rust has been out in alpha form since December, Rust is doing extremely well for the studio so far.
