POSTAL Redux 3.0 - New Levels, and More

After 17 action-packed levels, you must be feeling pretty weary and tired. Wouldn't it be nice to take a vacation? Maybe a trip to a relaxing resort, or across the ocean all the way to the exotic Godzilla-stricken land of Japan? But first, maybe you'd like to stop by the supermarket, and ask nicely for a copy of POSTAL... This odd introductory paragraph can only mean one thing - the 3.0 Update for POSTAL Redux is now live , and with it comes a batch of new and familiar levels (among other things!).

Just like the original game, POSTAL Redux has now been expanded with additional levels from the 'Special Delivery' expansion pack. Everything is here, from the EZ Mart and Shanty Town, to Earthquake and the La Palamino Resort. But wait, there's more! In addition to these levels, we've also brought back and rebuilt the levels from the Japanese-exclusive 'Super POSTAL' release - Tokyo and Osaka. All the levels you may or may not remember are back, redrawn, redesigned and rebuilt from the ground up. In addition to being playable in Single Player, across all difficulties, these levels are also fully supported in Rampage Mode and Co-Op Multiplayer, so bring a friend (or just settle for the Moron Clown Bots)!

Speaking of Co-Op, we've also refined the Multiplayer quite a bit, with all the little things your heart wants - you can change your server name to whatever genital-related pun you like, everybody can see how many kills they've got and the in-game chat has also seen an improvement. We've also implemented a new cheat, which allows players to select other playable characters... but this feature is Not Important. If you prefer a Single Player experience, though, we've got a treat for those who told us that Hard difficulty was just too easy - a new Nightmare difficulty mode, which should give you all a run for your money. But if that alone is still not difficult enough, you can also try out another addition, included due to lack of popular demand - Classic Tank Controls. If you're feeling nostalgic for the old days of playing POSTAL, you can bind these tank controls, to achieve the same type of gameplay that you got in the original game, before we updated it to a twin-stick control scheme. Why you would want to willingly play like this - don't ask us. But it's there, if you want it!

Other additions include a handful of new achievements for players who want to show off their sick gaming skills to the world, unique suicide animations for different weapons, which players have been asking for since Redux first launched, and all kinds of new post-processing effects, such as retro-pixelated filters or crazy sci-fi glowing effects. There's something for everybody, so try them all out!

This version includes a build for Windows 32-bit operating systems that should automatically download for those using 32-bit. Note that the game officially requires a 64-bit OS, the 32-bit build is currently unsupported, barely tested and provided “as-is”

Mac and SteamOS (Linux) builds are currently in the works

POSTAL Redux 2.0 update! (Co-Op and more!)

Here is the full change log from the update that went out yesterday.

  • Implements a co-op campaign mode! Team up with up to 3 other Dudes and fight your way through even harder levels than you’ll find in the single player campaign. No friends? Match up with random Dudes online, or add some moronic clown bot allies to your game to help you out until some real players show up.
  • Improved gamepad compatibility! Added an advanced Gamepad Settings menu where you can tweak everything about the gamepad that they’ll allow us to. You can also open up an analog test screen which will show where your sticks are pointing.
    Fixed all kinds of crashes. Crashes suck. We hate ‘em, you hate ‘em. Hopefully they’re all gone now.
  • Who wants some cheat codes? Use the text chat feature (T by default) to enter cheat codes during single player mode. Keep an eye on our Twitter for cheat codes, or you could maybe try some of the old P1 codes and see if any of them work… No cheating achievements though, gotta do those the hard way.
  • We fixed the Rampage mode scores. Now you’ll have to be REALLY awful to get an F. That A+ is still going to be a challenge to get, so make sure to keep that multiplier going, switch up your weapon every now and then, and don’t forget those executions for bonus points!
  • We also fixed up a lot of the maps. There was some weird stuff going on with collisions so we went ahead and got rid of them for you. Now you can fling molotov cocktails with reckless abandon!
  • The sound effects are improved on most maps as well, we went back and turned off the “Use Muddy Sound Effects” feature. Not sure why that’s toggled to On by default.
  • The exit signs were a bit confusing so we put arrows on them so you know which way to go. You’re welcome.
  • Tweaked the audible range and frequency of certain dialog lines, because some of them just weren’t playing at all and that’s no fun
  • Improved variety of animations of many NPCs
  • Intro movie is now quieter. “I’m afraid you’re just too darn loud.”
  • Intro movie now plays at the correct saved video settings, because why wouldn’t it
  • Fixed that annoying “dotted box” problem in the menu which hijacked the gamepad input
  • Resolved various issues with the mouse cursor during gameplay and menus
  • Speaking of menus, we fixed a lot of problems with them. Like the mouse doing weird stuff like moving to the corner randomly. And other weird ♥♥♥♥ we probably forgot about. Hey, it’s not like we can be ♥♥♥♥♥ to remember every single little fix we made, right?
  • We also made the bullet icon in the menu shiny and spinning, because it’s 2016 and we can do cool ♥♥♥♥ like that in a retro-styled menu
  • Game now pauses automatically if the Steam overlay is opened
  • Added more loading screens, so you know when you’re loading and you know when you’re not
  • Fixed a problem where certain enemies would stare off into space. We don’t quite know what they were looking at, but be careful because they’re more likely to be looking at you now.
  • Fixed the barrels not spinning when exploded on certain maps, because it was weird as hell to look at. Maybe that’s what those enemies in the above bullet point were staring at.
  • And a bunch of other ♥♥♥♥ we forgot about. See if you can find them yourself. It’s like an adventure!

First thing to know is that POSTAL Redux is NOT a funny game like POSTAL 2.
The original POSTAL and Redux are both pretty dark and grim in comparison to POSTAL 2.

I'm a really big POSTAL fan, but I'll make this one short:

This is the DEFINITIVE version of POSTAL.

- SAY GOODBYE to those old clunky controls and welcome in the new crosshairs which show you enemy health levels indicated from green to red(dead).
- IMPROVED 3D MODELS that aren't too demanding of even my very low-end laptop.
- TOTALLY RE-DONE Level art!
- BRAND NEW Rampage Mode! (Earn a grade from F through A+ on each of the levels)
- BRAND NEW weapon - the revolver!
- 6 FREE maps just added on Sept. 30 2016 from Super Postal(Tokyo and Osaka) and POSTAL Plus(EZ Mart, Shanty Town, Earthquake, and La Palamino Resort)
-1 ENTIRELY NEW MAP created just for this game
- 2 SECRET PLAYABLE CHARACTERS for online and solo play!
- NEW ACHIEVEMENTS - Unlock 'em with your friends, OR make some new friends to go 'POSTAL' with!

* The classic M16-styled assault rifle from the original game has been replaced with an MP5-styled SMG that has a smaller range, but improved firing speed.

Anything wrong with how the first game played in terms of controls, etc. has totally been re-vamped. With the huge imrpovements AND the free added content and free DLC, EASILY a must-buy. Even at full price, in my humble opinion.

Great remake of a classic game, everything has been improved and co-op is really fun and chaotic. The soundtracks are eerie and makes you feel psychotic. The new update includes "Not Important" from Hatred which is great, I also love that game and it's great that RWS and DC are friends. Would definitely recommend if you want a fun mass murder game with eerie soundtracks and artwork. 10/10

Mindless, fast paced mass homicide. Elimate hostiles to progess to the next level, but your proberly get the erge to finish off all the civilians before you head for the exit. why? because its great sadistic fun. For the price you seriously cant go wrong.

Perfect for killing a bit of time, each level takes 5-10 mins to complete.

Well polished, fluid high fps, responsive controls and mouse aim.

No bugs to report.

POSTAL Redux is an excellent remake of the original game. Now supporting co-op, you can go POSTAL with up to four of your friends. This game is fun, fast-paced, and the graphics look a lot better than they did a decade ago. You will definitely enjoy this one if you ever played the original and weren't apalled by the nature of the game.

An overall better version of the original postal. I'd say many major improvements were made and the graphics are incredibly better.

I tried the original and the controls were so annoying I coudn't play it. Then I discovered this and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Though Hatred has better graphics, story, and fully destructible environment, I enjoyed Postal just as much. The comparison is apt, because there are many similarities between the two games, some of them striking. Everything is nicer than the original, too.

Who played Hatred and wants more, Postal Redux is a great choice. And vice versa, of course.
