Acerca de este juego

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?

The Game is user friendly but the tutorial is bad, That tutorial is all small text words and has no body to read to for you.

It's very Basic to start building the post Business and that make sure you keep an eye of your cash as that tends to be removed every day in game time. e.g the rent and staff they get paid once per day in game time and that you also need to make sure you cover the blocks to get more mail to send out. Post Master might be know for some bugs and AI issues like one user said about there vans keep on braken down but when I play it I had never had this issue so really I'm not sure what they where on about Like but other than that I think it's an okay game and even then I never fully got the top ranks in Post Master but I still think it's an good game and user friendly and a very good business sim game for an good price on steam.

I will be trying to get some gameplay videos and photos of this game for you to get an better chance to understand about this Game!

if you enjoy tracking your Amazon packages online, then this game is for you. the graphics are amazing, the attention to detail is just ripe with dust particles. your freedom of movement is on par with GTAV, and the addition of first person mode is unbeliveable. go ♥♥♥♥ yourself San Diego

Not the best game EVER but it's actually good.
Still some issues where it crashes, but MEH it's a cheap game - and i'm pretty happy with it.
I reccomend it because it's not super hard it's a nice brainless game, and it's cool :D

Postmaste is a slow paced micromanagement game. If you like micromanage and/or you enjoy this game thematic you may like this game.

I didn't find any particoular bug but the game meccanic is repetitive: is almost impossible to loose money so you just have to wait, expand, and maximise the income trough micromanagement.

Simple, if you go thru the tutorials.

Not the most epic game ever made.

Somewhat of a tycoon game i guess.

Got bored quickly, but that's the only negative thing i have to write about it.

If they released free DLC to this i will re-install it.

Es un juego de gestión en el que controlas una empresa de reparto de correo, paquetería y postales. Puedes que contratar/despedir empleados, guardias, así como comprar vehículos. También puedes comprar "mejoras" para la oficina así como reciclar a tus empleados. Vas ganando estrellas de bonificación que puedes utilizar para desbloquear nuevos vehículos, comprar objetos, ... También puedes invertir en publicidad, abrir nuevas oficinas, ... Todo esto, aunque parezca "abrumador" es bastante fácil coger el "truquillo" al juego. Además esta completamente en CASTELLANO. Perfecto para iniciados en juegos de gestión. Eso si, pilladlo en oferta. Este juego en 2-3 eur. considero que es buen precio.

Para quien le pueda interesar, estoy empezando a subir serie de este juego. Aquí va enlace del primer episodio (Tutorial y primeras impresiones):

Creo que fue el juego mas corto que jugue en toda mi vida. Habré tardado creo 40 minutos en adueñarme completamente de todas las postales y completado los edificios. Pero sabiendo que vale 1 dolar no me puedo quejar, sirvió para pasar el tiempo un rato.

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.

The potential is there, but the implementation is very lacking. The UI is very clunky, and the game is at once very micro-mangement intensive while making it hard to actually monitor status and figure out what needs to be done. Feels unpolished.

This feels like an in-browser flash game and I would play the hell out of this game 7 to 10 years ago. The tutorial is patronizing and slapped together, but at the same time, makes the most basic spelling mistakes and grammatical errors. I mean, if you want to show every person who plays your game that you really don't give a rat's ♥♥♥, do exactly that.

I played the game on normal difficulty first time through and it was like sucker-punching a toddler. Did I win? Yes. Was it satisfying? Only slightly. You get a significant amount of cash to start with, so reckless expansion wins the game. Period.

Other details just reinforce that the developers did not take great any care when polishing this game. For example, in your post office, you can get different equipment. A magazine rack, an A/C unit, etc. A decent game would have a description for each like: “Looks like someone took out all the nudie mags” or “Keep your customers cool so they don't go... postal”. See? I just made those up in 20 seconds. Instead, each and every item just says “Customers like a post office with a/n <item_name_here>.” Even the sound effects/"music" doesn't have a long enough loop. Either play this game on mute or prepared to listen to the same "people talking in a store" sound byte played every 6 seconds. Disappointing.

At a base prince of 9.99 USD at the time of this review, I cannot possibly recommend such a game. There are free mods for Skyrim that have had more love poured into them than this garbage.

******* Adding this on 6-Jan-2015******
Game seems to be abandoned by the dev, no more updates, so yea... no patches, no fixes, no updates, nothing... So you should consider that before buying this game.. If you ask for my suggestion about to buy it or not, I'd still buy it, but at hell big discount, like 90% at least.

This is the link to their first ever, and last seen update
http://steamcommunity.com/gid/103582791435159972/announcements/detail/1424570746448987052

This is the link for their so called "community suggested updates", which was never really bothered

********************************************


This game doesn't have complex systems as compared to most of the sims out there, so I'll say this is a beginner friendly for those who are new to simulation games. However, I would not recommend it to those who are looking for sim with complex and advance system like Cities in Motion series. If you getting this, you should really get it while it's on sale! Okay ._. enough of my boring talk, let's take a look at my review

Overall game play rating : 7.4/10 (average of whatever score i gave below)

Money Value : 4/10
For $14.99, I personally think it's a bit too high, so grab it while it's on sale! The game should be around $4.99 in my opinion. (YES, I'm cheapskate x_x) Again, grab it while it's on sale!

Graphic presentation : 10/10
Kinda old school isometric artwork, it's simple, it's clean, it's neat, it's beautiful.

BGM : 7/10
You don't get to choose your BGM, but the existing one is good enough for us to play with.

User Interface : 7/10
Everything is simple enough, it's easy to learn and easy to monitor, but there's no hot key binded to any of them.

Simplicity : 9/10
Yes, the game is really simple, you probably won't go bankrupt any time soon. But it's still fun!

Cons:
- The game is slow... Even with the speed option, it's still slow at max speed... (might improve soon, because people are really complaining bout this).
- Though the game's graphic seems really simple, the recommended processor is at dual core 2.4 GHz, I'm running it on Core i5 1.6 GHz, living in warm climate (about 32 degree celcius outside at afternoon), it caused my laptop to overheat without proper air ventilation (fancy word for getting table fan and cooling pad to give my laptop a blow jo...b).

Pros:
- The game is not dead! I mean, there's still update for improvement and bug fixes!
- The game is not complex! (for those who don't like complicated sims)

Post Master is an intriquing game. You have the ability to run your own privately ran post service much of the likes of UPS and FedEx. You start out in a medium sized post office in a small commercial city and you're trying your best to get your mail service up and running by getting workers for your post office, a fleet of vehicles, and their routes assigned. The game starts out slow though as you're only running a limited amount of routes and trying to invest in infastructure to increase your mail coverage of the local area. It's quite enjoyable. I haven't played much as of yet though I can at least give a brief overview of the features.

You basically micromanage both your post offices keeping track of demand of your business while trying your best to get enough service. You can invest in new vehicles, add amenities to your post offices to keep customers/employees happy, and also hire enough employees such as customer service(front desk workers) and sorters. In the garage, you can choose the vehicles you want to buy but you must first unlock them as well as other things via Bonus Stars which are an alternative currency of sorts which is earned via the Missions system or District Competitions. These bonus stars unlock items to place in your post office, new vehicles, and helps pay for advertising runs. Vehicles though are from bicycles to big trucks with fuel cost, maintence, etc becoming higher but also allowing you to use less vehicles and take in more demand by increase storage capacity of the vehicles.

However, you're also competing against rival companies for a market and coverage. Offer the best coverage, best priced service, and you might be able to conquer a city. On my current playthrough, i'm trying to get a hold of the commercial market in town before moving onto another town entirely. I have my competition on me but i'm currently at the biggest advantage in terms of price and coverage. I've invested alot in infastructure and i'm sitting at at over 60% of the market of the town as mine. Competition is a great feature of any serious business sim or any sim in general as it keeps you on your toes. It means that I must constantly invest in new infastructure in order to keep a hold of the market. It's stressful and fun all at the same time.

The last thing is the graphics and music. The game style reminds me of Sim City, plays a little like Transport Tycoon, but it more focused on mail as being the games title. The music is calming but I wouldn't listen to it for extended play as i'd recommend for any deep sim fan who will spend hours on one game. The game also has very nice ambiance which without music would really bring the world to life. It's the one thing that I like hearing because it makes it feel like a real place. Kind of wish though there was vehicle traffic of general traffic as it would add alot to the game. It's great as is though and if any future updates come then I think i'll put tons of hours into it.

So, if you're into micromanagement, I recommend this game. It's worth the price. Not expensive, not too cheap. You get what you pay for and it's awesome.

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.
