Rust is a first person multiplayer game for the PC. It is available on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. It simulates survival experiences and creates an environment for game play that is intense and unpredictable. Creatures behave as they would in real life in this popular game. Animals will chase and kill characters if they feel threatened. Staying outside in the elements of starving will kill you. Perhaps the most unsettling aspect of the game is that there are other people trying to survive as well. Sometimes surviving the hordes of zombies becomes increasingly difficult and many players are using rust hacks, and other cheats to give them an advantage. If they choose to, they can steal your things, beat you up, or kill you so that you are no longer competition for resources. Rust presents a realistic view of post apocalyptic dystopia that is terrifyingly real. And that makes the game that much more exciting.
Rust was released in 2013 and sold 150,000 copies in two weeks. Facepunch is currently working on new features.
People are enjoying the ‘fend for yourself’ mentality this game provides. It allows them to explore their survival instincts in ways that we hope we never have to. Chop down trees to get wood, make weapons, hunt for food, make a fire to cook food, build a place to lay your head – all these functions are things you have to do to make it in Rust. Do it and do it well, or find out just how harsh the environment really is. Enjoyable? Without a doubt. Addictive? You bet. This game has people glued to their monitors and playing with all their might. Their goal is to survive, plain and simple.
