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!

Are you really this stupid? This mod was made to show straight, and homosexual relationships go the same way, it's made to show both are human, and you sound like a true homophobe.

Sorry, this mod was made exclusively for homosexuals. Heterosexuals shouldn't even be able to visit this profile! I'll ask ModDB to look into that. Make sure you've unchecked the "Show gay mods too" checkbox in your ModDB profile settings. Again, I'm really sorry.

So in your perspective, the creator of this mod hasn't played or didn't want to play Max Payne, Grand theft auto, and other games with heterosexual interactions between protagonists, just because he's gay?

Also, the mod isn't aimed at homosexual men. It isn't even a love story (depends on your view on love stories though). It's a story of a broken marriage (if I got it right..). And no, there are no sex scene's in the mod (at least, to my knowledge ^^).

Sorry man, but your comment is just plain stupid. So you wouldn't want to watch Broke back mountain, A single man, milk and others any time soon?

*sigh* You're missing out on a fantastic mod *sigh*

And by the way, for your information, I'm not homosexual. So I've dis-proven your second statement as well.

This, Stanley Parable, Korsakova, and Dear Esther should make a narrative game.

I like the whole memories thing, but i would probably put this mod under 'realism', not 'comedy'. there was no humor in it! but it should be realism because that kind of thing (the counseling/divorce stuff, not the memory boxes part) happens all the time

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.
