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!

Just finished Polaris, brilliant work there, we need more of this innovation. Just out of interest, was there an alternative ending?

If you've finished it, you can read through my development notes ( Radiator.debacle.us ) where I kind of talk about stuff like that. Beware - spoiler alert!

Adam Foster? O_O The creator of MINERVA?

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.
