Rust, the open-world survival game from Facepunch Studios, has been a breakout success.

The team’s Garry Newman has revealed as much in an interview with Games Inudstry. Newman revealed that, in a month of release, Rust has sold 40 percent of what Garry’s Mod has sold in nine years.

No specifics, then, but that’s sure to be a lot. Garry’s Mod has been hugely popular since release and funded Facepunch itself, which has 15 employees.

Rust released in December last year. It tasks you with simply surviving after spwaning in the world with nothing but a rock.
