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!

Campaign Junkie seems to have fallen off the face of the Earth. Looks like Valve breaking the regular SDK has killed both this and Eye of the Storm.

Man, I can't believe it's been this long. I just replayed Radiator and still found it as amazing as it was when I first played it. I'm glad this mod isn't dead yet, and, according to the maker of this mod, will try and release 1-3 during the summer. I really cant wait until that is released, and I also can't wait until 2-1 is released too. Great job on this mod, and I hope to see more releases in the future.

They are gay and married... that's the point of the mod, the first episode makes you think you're a girl, but in the next episode you find out that it's a guy... in my opinion, this is made to change people's mind about homosexuals, because this shows you that they are no different to straight people in such a beautiful way, you can't help but feel their emotions.

That's one of the reasons I love this mod so much. It helps people see that homosexuals like me, and others are people too.

@Vortex: The idea behind it was to use the information you have been taught to find north. And find north once more (without help) and walk in that direction into the woods.

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.
