Garry's Mod

06.24.20 for
Mac

Physics-based sandbox to make your own objects.

Garry's Mod is a physics sandbox, powered by Valve's source engine, with no predefined goals or objectives. We give you the tools, and leave you to play.

Spawn objects to create your own contraptions - whether that's a car, rocket, or something that doesn't have a name yet - it's up to you.
