Blast Radius was a Half-Life 2 modification that was in development throughout 2004 lead by Quasar. The modification was to have both single player and multiplayer elements.

There was plans to release a demo version of the modification for the original Half-Life as well; however, this may be in part due to Half-Life 2 not being released at the time the modification started development.

Story

The story as written by Quasar on the ModDB profile:

The year is 2010. Nick McDonald is a DEA agent on an assignment to discover and stop the production and sale of a mysterious new narcotic “White Spice”. In the Blast Radius Trailer, Nick has his first encounter with this mysterious drug and manages to destroy a boatload of it while the boat is arriving in a dock overrun by members of the drug cartel. Nick is made the primary enemy of the cartel for this reason.

And if you don't understand the significance of "Blast Radius", it will become apparent as the story develops.
