Earlier this year we reported that Garry's Mod, the sandbox physics game based on Half-Life 2, had earned $22 million over the last seven years and that creator Garry Newman's team, Facepunch, was looking into starting development on a new game that Newman had been wanting to make "for ages."

Well, Rust is officially in alpha development. Right now, the multiplayer survival game looks like a mix of Minecraft and DayZ, as you cut down trees to build sanctuary from the crippling cold. According to PC Gamer, Newman is presently working to keep the game from being "just like DayZ," adding, "we also hate zombies and are going to replace them with other NPCs at some point."

Now that's what I like to hear. What about you? Is there room in this growing genre that has recently seen entries like State of Decay and Miasmata? The upcoming Sir, You Are Being Hunted definitely seems more up my alley, but Rust has at least piqued my interest. I like the idea of cold as an enemy and I like that they're ditching zombies posthaste.
