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!

The whole comment section is a ******* debate.

I personally don't care if you're gay or not just don't go around shoving it in other peoples faces.

We only have to do that because we are being supressed by ignorant ********. So we can get equal rights, and don't you dare say same sex marriage is sticking it in your face, or I will personally bite your nose off. The gay pride parades are going to continue, and so is the LGBT movement. We won't stop until we get equal rights. I feel it's not too much to ask...

No, we still can't marry in many places, don't even say women, we can't even have sex with them. We don't get benefits in many places, and we are still being discriminated against in so many places. What's not to understand?

Actually, I think the only people who still give a crap about the whole thing are gay people and the asshats who decided that being gay was bad in the first place. I don't think many other people care, but it does get kind of annoying. It's like "Yes, we know, you're different, but we're at a stalemate because of the morons who brought us so many things like Burn a Koran day."

I'm straight and I thought this mod was pretty good, and it has a very present day moral that is very common in today's society. It's made for everyone, straight and gay. All it does is that it shows the life of a gay man through his eyes. I guess this mod was created to show that even gay people are human beings and also share the same problems and relationship issues with spouses that we heterosexuals have every single day.

I agree, all though sexuality shouldn't even be an issue these days. It's interesting to see a different take on a game, shouldn't people be complimenting the creative art take on this rather than trying to be god forgive me 'politically correct'.

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.
