A conversation about Garry's Mod

Hey all,

We've been getting a lot of questions (and concerns) about the GMOD brand and I'm here to provide some answers. I know that the Garry's Mod community is frustrated and I'd like them to know that we are working to make things right.

We've been using GMOD as a product and website since back in 2005 when I first started the company. At the time few people had heard of Garry's Mod. When Garry's Mod started attracting more popularity and people began to abbreviate it as GMod, the only issue was the reduction in Google results.

I thought that our KickStarter campaign would help draw a distinction between our product and Garry's Mod, not create a controversy.

I want to let you know that our whole team has been nonstop brainstorming options over the past several days. Rest assured that we want nothing more than to promote great modders like Garry Newman. We are looking for a solution that works out best for everyone.

      Just to be clear to everyone - we are not in any way using a legal approach with the Garry's Mod situation.

      Forget the name - We just want to focus on getting funded so we can get our tech out so people can start using it!

      "The Mod Father" sounds a bit Zeno Clash related to me...

      I agree with Neil Pettitt, The Mod Father would be an amazing name (if you do re-brand).

      How about calling it 'the Mod Father' ? I don't think that's been taken yet?

    5. Olympus Games Creator on May 8, 2013

      Great ideas James. If we re-brand we'll definitely be asking you and the rest of the community for suggestions.

      How about ModHub? Or TeraMod? Or OneMod?
