Loki Goes Loco for POSTAL!

Linux gamers finally get a piece of the POSTAL pie

October 08, 2001

Tucson, AZ - Proving again that good taste is no substitute for good gameplay, outrageous developer Running With Scissors dropped a not-so-dainty-sized turd into Martha Stewart's videogame punchbowl by announcing they will join forces with Loki Software to bring the long-awaited Linux version of POSTAL to Windows-weary gameplayers, everywhere.

"There's something just plain sick and wrong about Linux users," said Vince Desi, Running With Scissors' tetanus-tempered edge. "That's why we`re so excited to be able to bring these gaming misfits a Linux version of POSTAL - They're our kind of people!"

"Why did we do it?" said Scott Draeker, President of Loki Software, Inc. "Two words: First Amendment. Besides, it's nice to play something with all the gore of Quake but none of the nausea. Loki, the Norse god of mischief and our namesake, would definitely have approved".

Having hurdled both legislative and litigious obstacles since first inviting gamers to go POSTAL back in 1997, Desi has good reason to brag on the hard-won success of the POSTAL franchise.

Running With Scissors holds a string of international licensing agreements that have made POSTAL a part of the game culture of such economic giants as Japan, Korea and Canada. Desi is equally confident that the Linux version of the ever-popular game will only increase its presence in the world marketplace.

"Industry insiders call it `having achieved cult status'," laughed Desi. "We like to call it `business as usual.' No matter what you call it, though, there's simply no denying the power of POSTAL - It's sort of like the `power of cheese' but with a lot more blood and screaming."
