Just having fun, no time to rest. That may be one type of game you'd like to play where you'll never go Spectator. Never be frustrated of being headshot'd by a sneaky sniper, no, you don't kill anyone in this game. GarryWare is a custom gamemode for Garry's Mod running on Fretta Gamemode Base. The rule is simple : Do what you are asked to do. Try to screw up what other people are also trying to do. If you fail, you can take over your chance in the next 8 seconds for another game. Yes, that's it : It's a WarioWare-type Party game set on a Multiplayer First Person Shooter environment. Do you think it's not a right platform for that kind of game ? Do you think a multiplayer WarioWare gameplay can't be working ? Wait... Have you even tried that type of game ? Garry Ware reviews the definition of a game : "To have fun, and to share this fun.".
"GarryWare Two". That's it ! No ragequit from sneaky snipers. While almost every other gamemode is about killing someone else, "GarryWare Two" is a non-combat gamemode, which is, if we can put a name on it, a WarioWare-type Party game set on a Multiplayer First Person Shooter environment. Ok, what the - ? WarioWare is a platform game. It's not multiplayer, and it's not even close to a First Person Shooter. Does it mean it fails ? Have you actually tried it ?

For those who don't know what WarioWare is : Basically it's a game developed by Nintendo where you have to interact with the game controls specific to a platform (1-axis Accelerometer, Touch screen, Wiimote) in order to perform a simple action on a very short timespan, and this keeps going (Those games are often available right when the gaming platform is released, and is used to demonstrate the console capabilities during game shows). Looks silly, it is. Looks easy, it is not.
In the WarioWare case, it's aggremented with characters on the Wario universe.
(The WarioWare development team are also behind the game Rhythm Heaven.)
Uhh ... There's none.
Yeah, enough talking.
If you want to play that game :
+ Find a server hosting GarryWare Two.
- Garry's Mod gamemodes are immediately playable when entering a server. The game will download all required clientside resources for you to enjoy the gamemode as if you installed it !
- To find a server easily, type wa_ in the map filter in Server search. wa_ is the map prefix for GarryWare gamemode. You will likely find wa_edge being hosted, or wa_prism.
Note that GarryWare Two runs on Fretta servers, that means some servers may be hosting it but is not currently played. Don't play GarryWare Two twice in a row, it's boring, take a tour on what Fretta has to offer by playing the other gamemodes too.
- Make sure you're playing on an up-to-date server. This may not be the case for all servers. You won't know if a server is updated until you fully joined, but this will cause no harm at all.
+ If you know what a SVN is already, download GarryWare Two. It's free, the entire source code (Lua) and contents are made available as a project hosted on a SVN repository.
Please refer to this thread for SVN Url and instructions. I will not provide information on how to use SVNs.
Note that you should only download GarryWare Two if you have Steam friends to play with and host ! If you do not have an opportunity to prepare a game, just go online on a filled server and play without installing !
To convince you into playing it, just look at that footage from GarryWare Two :
