RADIATOR is a semi-episodic short form single player experimental alt mod for HL2:Ep2 trying to bridge the gaping canyon between Tale of Tales and commercial game design. VOLUME 1, "MORE MATTER," is the FPS without any shooting, the story of Dylan and James in California; stargaze, repress and rationalize. The third part of the trilogy will be released soon. Hopefully.

Hey everyone. Long time no see!

I've finished Radiator! Well, kind of. It still feels very unfinished to me in a lot of ways, but I decided to just package it and upload it for release anyway. You can download it for Windows / Mac / Linux over here: Radiatoryang.itch.io -- it is also playable by ANYONE WITH A STEAM ACCOUNT because it is based off the free Source SDK Base 2013 Single Player, which any Steam user can access.

Also: I don't really use ModDB anymore -- if you want to contact me, please see my website: Debacle.us

Thanks for playing, and I hope the third chapter was worth the 6 year wait!

so... I played this mod a long time ago and never really understand what was going on (the screenshoots from moddb page are a little different from the mod tough), can someone explain to me?

Guys, I found a fix that is a lot more practical than goforbrokehub's. (No offense if you're reading this.)
Go to steamapps/sourcemods/morematter and open the gameinfo.txt document with any text editor. Then delete all text from the document and replace it with this: Pastebin.com
Fix seems to work 100%. Let me know if you find an issue.

How do I play the stand alone game? I looked on your blog but I couldn't find a link to a download.

"The FPS without shooting." Never heard that deal before (The Stanley Parable,Dear Esther,Gravity Bone,Thirty flights of loving,a good portion of horror games,etc.). Oh,art,you say? Clever level design is also art. Logic and consistency is also art. What I suppose is walking around,possibly performing very menial tasks is not art. Re-using assets from Half-Life 2 in your "artistic" mod is also not art. Making an artistic very boring video game is equivalent to making a walking simulator.

The author is actually working on other games. I don't know even if he will update something here.

For some reason the link I posted got converted into something else, and I didn't manage to edit my post either. Tinyurl.com

A beautiful mod that presents a very enjoyable change from more "typical", gameplay-oriented pieces (not to say those can't be enjoyable, of course. It's just that this mod, to me, was a great and unexpected experience). Certainly deserves attention.
