Facepunch Studios Working on Garry’s Mod Sequel With VR Support
Ashley Allen / 3 years ago
Facepunch Studios founder Garry Newman has revealed that he is working on the sequel to Garry’s Mod with VR support, but it won’t be called Garry’s Mod 2.
Speaking about the possibility of raising the price of Garry’s Mod, Newman said, “We wouldn’t raise the price now, I mean we’re kind of working on a sequel, so it’d be stupid to the raise the price, really. It’s early days. We’re looking at having more VR stuff in it – that’s the big point of it. And it won’t be called Garry’s Mod 2.”
Regarding the price of Garry’s Mod, Newman added, “The price goes back to the original days. We decided to have it that cheap because when Valve originally asked if we wanted to put it on Steam I said no. I thought: who would pay for it? When we were first talking about price we thought $10. If we’d have priced it at $50 or $30, or even $20, I don’t think it’d have lasted ten years.”
When asked back in July whether Garry’s Mod would get VR native support, Newman gave the rather loaded answer, “Not in Garry’s Mod 1, no.” That comment has been given a whole new context now.
