After 19 years and millions of downloads, developers, Running With Scissors are remaking their classic twin-stick shooter POSTAL, which will arrive with new content. POSTAL Redux releases on Steam for Windows, SteamOS and Mac in Spring 2016, with a PlayStation 4 release also confirmed later in the year.
POSTAL Redux see’s players take control of The POSTAL Dude as he battles to survive in a world gone completely insane. Crazed gunmen are out for blood and wait around every corner. Players fight back with a destructive arsenal as they make their way through a kill-or-be-killed psychological thriller.
Running With Scissors have a new mode for POSTAL Redux with Rampage Mode, a new single-player mode based around a scoring system, which encourages an aggressive style of play by increasing a multiplier for each consecutive kill in a streak. Players will receive a grade following the completion of each level.
POSTAL Redux will maintain the elements that made the original POSTAL world-renowned. The grim art style, frightening ambience, the omnipresent “demonic voice” and the marching band will be faithfully recreated in this modern day take on a title which became a symbol for free speech in gaming.
Vince Desi, founder of Running With Scissors had this to say,

POSTAL Redux is a love letter to our fans,” said .[/box]
POSTAL Redux launches Spring 2016 for Windows, Steam OS and Mac with a PlayStation 4 version coming later in the year.
