Do you think you are not able to create anything unique anymore? This game is going to awake your soul of an artist.
In Garry’s Mod, everything is possible
The source engine used in Garry’s mod is very friendly for modders. The only thing that can actually stop you is your own imagination. If you want to drive a car and simply chill out, you can do it. If you want to change the world of Garry’s mod into a Call of Duty like, heavily scripted game with Normandy sequence, you can do it.
Maybe you want to put a Final Fantasy VII story into this? If you have enough time and imagination, you can do it. To provide you with an example. There is a group of people, who play Hide & Seek in Garry’s Mod. The only weird thing is the fact, that they turned themselves into plants and trees. Because why not?
Garry’s Mod gameplay is easy to learn
Construction sandbox games are very often omitted by players. They are too afraid, that they might not be able to handle the complicated engine. Thus, they rather avoid such games. However, the source engine is different from the others. It is a typical example of easy to learn and hard to master gameplay. After a few minutes, you will be able to build various constructions or force Gordon Freeman to dance. Still, if you are going to try to create more complicated things, like modifications of the engine, then you have to learn. Step by step and you will be able to create something great and unique.
