Относно тази игра

Can you take control of a mail distribution company where your business will need to adapt to a growing city? Will you be able to handle the pressure of new delivery opportunities or are other delivery businesses step in to pick up the slack and impact your profit margin.

In Excalibur’s Post Master you’ll start out with a single post office, supplying pick-up and delivery services for a small area of the city. To maintain an excellent service you’ll need to hire workers to sort mail, contract security guards to protect your offices from robberies while also purchasing new vehicles to pick up and deliver mail.

Once you’ve settled into your first office, you’ll need to look to the future of your company and determine the best plan of action to expand your services. Will you look to provide the best mail distribution system but supply a small area, or are you looking to conquer the city with several offices and a vast fleet of vehicles.

In order to maintain your claim on postal services for parts of the city, you’re going to need to remain competitive. With a rival business looking to take a cut of the services there are methods of attack to remain the superior mail distribution business. You can carefully plan your delivery routes to make your average delivery time faster than anyone else, or you could lower the prices of your services to remain the cheapest.

Features of Post Master:


  • An ever growing city that changes frequently
  • Hire staff and purchase personnel
  • Set the duties and route of each vehicle
  • Purchase objects for your garage and offices
  • Hire security guards to prevent post office robbery
  • Invest in new offices to expand the reach of your services
  • Adjust the prices of your services, do you want to charge a fortune or undercut your competitors?

Fun for the first hours, than you quickly realize "how to play" this game and you are left with a boring game that lacks any depths.

The UI is terrible and requires so many clicks to setup a Post Office, making you wonder if it is really a Steam game or just a mobile game.
There is no campaigns, no different scenarios, no customization (you can buy air conditioners, plants...but only in the same spot in all your Post Offices,lol...), no late-game (there are only post offices, forget about set-up distribution centers to tweak the flow of packages, airplanes to deliver between towns).
Get it only if you can buy it cheap (got it in a bundle for 1 dollar along with other games), don't buy at full price, it isn't worth even 7 bucks.

The only good thing that I can say about this game is that it makes me want to return to Open Transport Tycoon Deluxe (or OpenTTD, if you will) which is FREE, unlike this heap of junk.

I was enjoying the game until I realized how much clicking I was doing later once you become established. Sadly there is no form of ease of use menu management it is point and click each item indivualy and repeat whenever you want to add a new vehicle. There is no buy X amount or saved vehicle settings for creating a new vehicle. The simplest way to fix this is to have a menu specificly for the different type of mail vehicles have a global < local < individual settings. Where the global and local only need to be read when the vehicle is created to set the default. What it also needs is a place multiple function where with mailbox you have click confirm on each indivual one later on I ended up placing 100 at once so either a drag box selection or confirm after you selected both or even better incorporate both. These are fatal flaws that make the game tedious to play. Other than that it's fun.

I created a pair of post offices, staffed them, bought them vehicles and a few amenities, set routes and fixed prices. All of that took roughly ten minutes. I spent the next 50 minutes doing other things in real life. I cooked some soup, put together a decent sandwich (it even had some lemon zest in it), made a banana split, went to the bathroom, and got some things from my car that I'd forgotten earlier in the day. The whole time, the game was at 3x speed. I occasionally hit "ok" on the dialog that told me the day was over, but most of my time was afk.

I came back to the game and found that after a week, nothing interesting had happened. My operation flowed smoothly and made me a good return. Given a month I could open another office, given a year and I could probably edge out my competition with decent advertisements and expanded service.

Here's the thing - the game played itself. All i did was set it up. There's no management, the prices were already reasonable, there were never any problems, and I didn't have to do anything. Other tycoon games give you a reason to keep playing - more things to build, more people to attract, more stuff to see. This one doesn't - it's over as soon as you've finished setting it up. It's barren and simple. It's so simple that I can't recommend it, because you won't get anything out of it, unless you're looking for a screensaver that doesn't move, but takes ten minutes to set up.

Glancing over the developer's history, it seems clear that this is common. Produce a bargain bin game that's very simplistic, release a new one every couple months. And hey, they apparently make enough money to stay afloat, so cheers to that. Given how many games I play that were made by people who tried 10x as hard and came out roughly equal to this one, I can't really decry someone who is literally in business making this sort of thing.
