Rust is a survival game created by Facepunch Studios. Inspired by games like DayZ, Minecraft and Stalker – Rust aims to create a hostile environment in which emergent gameplay can flourish.

The aim of the game is to survive. To do this the player should gather resources. Hitting a tree with a rock will give you wood, hitting a rock with a rock will give you rock and ore. You can then craft a hatchet from the wood and rock, allowing you to gather faster. You can go out and hunt a variety of wildlife such as boars, chickens, rabbits, bears, wolves and deer. Once you have killed an animal you can butcher it to gather its meat and skin. You can craft a fire using wood and cook the meat inside the fire. Then you can eat.

You face two major dangers in game.

Rust is a multiplayer game, so there will be other players trying to survive in the same way that you are. Unfortunately for you they can find you, kill you and take your stuff. Fortunately for you – you can kill them and take their stuff. Or maybe you can make friends and help each other survive. Rust’s world is harsh – so you might need to make friends to survive.

The environment is not kind. Bears and wolves will chase and kill you. Falling from a height will kill you. Being exposed to radiation for an extended period will kill you. Starving will kill you. Being cold will kill you.

steam top 100

As its huge Winter Sale comes to an end, Steam has revealed the Top 100 best-selling games of 2016 on the digital distribution platform. The games are ranked by gross revenue generated, and divided into four tiers: platinum, gold, silver, and bronze.

What’s noticeable is the strong distribution of indie games across all tiers, including the top platinum tier. While big-budget triple-A titles like Fallout 4, Dark Souls III, and Grand Theft Auto V are included in the tier, so too are indie titles like Rocket League and No Man’s Sky. The latter is most surprising, given its critical reception.

Moving down to the gold tier, more surprise indie hits can be found. Dead by Daylight and Stardew Valley have found a prominent audience, and sit alongside shooters such as Doom, Rainbow Six: Siege, and Call of Duty: Black Ops III.

The silver tier sees popular Steam Early Access titles enter the mix, with the likes of Subnautica, Rust, and Planet Coaster. These unfinished games are butting heads with triple-A open world games like Watch Dogs 2, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition, and Far Cry: Primal.

The final bronze tier sees the largest indie representation. 7 Days to Die, Garry’s Mod, Factorio, Starbound, Darkest Dungeon, Terraria, Grim Dawn, RimWorld, Endless Legend, Firewatch, and Undertale are just a few of the notable indie games on the list. On the bronze triple-A side, the likes of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Hitman, Mafia III, Just Cause 3, and Far Cry 4 share the same status.

What this list shows is just how little barrier is left between indie and triple-A adoption – at least for PC gamers buying their games digitally. With more and more indie games releasing on Steam each year, it will be interesting to see how the ratio changes at the end of 2017, and what the year’s surprise indie megahits will be.

as someone who has actually played the game it's pretty friggin good and not to mention the near constant updates your paying for what it can be not what it is right now that's the point of a alpha or even a beta so yeah i payed close to twenty bucks for a game worth a whole heck of a lot more so take your whining back to minecraft and let the big boys play the good stuff or enjoy the game for what it is

You should probably set the developer as Facepunch Studios, not you.
