The Tearoom is a ‘historical public bathroom simulator’

We’ve been teased for months by Robert Yang, creator of Radiator 2 and Cobra Club, with 3D models of high-grade urinals and promises of pee physics but now the game he’s been working on is out. The Tearoom [itch.io page] is a “historical public bathroom simulator about anxiety, police surveillance, and sucking off another dude's gun”. You might think that’s a euphemism - and, I…

Star-Quashed Lovers: Radiator

Look to the skies. It's a trailer for the new Polaris, a reworked and extended version of the first of the Radiator experiments. It's a stargazing, although I imagine some people will consider the eyes to be firmly placed on the navel or shoes. New additions in this version include "completely re-done graphics, interactions, voice acting, narrative, a bit of full-frontal male nudity, and neck-strain-tastic…

Mods And Ends: Radiator And THAT

Something old for you today, which you may well have seen before, but I think it’s worth reminding people of. It's Radiator. I’ve included something new for good measure, but nothing blue because this isn’t a wedding, it’s a little article about mods. Sorry if that’s disappointing. You’re going to be even more disappointed if you don’t like pretentious artsy mods. I’m talking the kind…

At the Mounting Anticipation Of Madness…

Hurrah! More of the critically acclaimed (by us) Radiator in the near future. Robert Yang sends news of its third part to debut in either March or April. One of the two, unless it doesn't. What's it about? Well, it's called Much Madness and Robert describes it as: "You're trying to escape a sinking submarine after stabbing your husband in the back repeatedly -- to…

Handle With Care: Gamer Homophobia

We've covered art mod series Radiator before, both first part Polaris and the second Handle With Care. Because we are all about the art-wank. Or wanking generally, in my case. However, some people are less into splendid art-ejaculate, and Robert Yang writes about their responses over in this week's Escapist. Of course, their problem isn't pretension or even iffy Half-life-two-level design. It's because you were…

Shrink Rapt – Radiator #2

Art-mod Radiator returns, and its (entirely standalone from the first part, worry not - but you do need HL2 Ep 2) second instalment is a dramatically different affair to the maudlin stargazing of the first episode, Polaris. It's no less introspective, but if you're the kind of chap who's turned off by even a hint of navelgazing, consider this: it has explosions.

Star Trick: Radiator Episode 1

2009 is looking very much like being the year that mods grew up. A little while back, Dear Esther nudged real emotion out of gamers' stony hearts, and now experimental, one-room Half-Life 2 mod Radiator successfully creates a sad, beautiful sense of moment and place through minimalistic events and controls. Oh, and it also teaches basic astronomy to boot.
