Rust Dueling

It turns out y'all really like your post-apocalyptic nude survival games. Rust (opens in new tab) has now sold just over three million copies on Steam, as revealed by Facepunch's Garry Newman this very morning (opens in new tab). And that's not the only Rust stat doing the rounds: Newman has plastered a load of infographics over on the official site (opens in new tab), and they're pretty interesting!

DID YOU KNOW, for example, that 48% of Rust owners have played for more than 20 hours? And that around two-thirds of sales happened during the game's first year of sale? Also, there's this picture of a bear looking down a shaft, which is pretty swell:
