Postal² is a 2003 computer game by Running With Scissors (RWS). It is a sequel to the 1997 game Postal. Both are intentionally highly controversial due to high levels of violence and stereotyping. Unlike its predecessor, Postal² is a first-person shooter based on the Unreal Graphics Engine.

The player takes on the role of 'The Postal Dude' (all evidence given in-game indicates that the character's full legal name actually is "The Postal Dude, Jr.": his father's tombstone reads "T. Dude Sr."; characters constantly call him "Mr. The Dude" and a package for him is addressed to "Postal Dude"), a tall thin man with a goatee, sunglasses, a blue alien t-shirt, and a long black leather coat. The Postal Dude also wears a Happy Smiley pin on his right lapel and a cross pin on his left one. 'The Postal Dude' lives in a trailer park with his nagging wife (only identified in the credits as 'Postal Dude's Bitch') in the mining town of Paradise, Arizona.

The game levels are split into days of the week starting Monday and finishing Friday. At the beginning of each day, Dude is given several tasks to accomplish, such as 'Get milk', 'Confess sins', and other seemingly mundane tasks. The purpose of the game is to finish all of the tasks throughout the week, although the game encourages the player to play in any way he wishes, be it as civilly or as chaotically as possible. There are unique consequences to whichever path is chosen.

Dude must put up with being flipped the bird, mugged, attacked by protesters, put upon by an obnoxious convenience store owner/terrorist and his patrons who cut before Dude in the "money-line", plus an annoying marching band, a murderous toy mascot named Krotchy, the police and SWAT team, the ATF and the National Guard, a religious cult, savage butchers, psycho Taliban terrorists, and Gary Coleman, among many other things.

We now have active Postal 2 and Apocalypse forums on Desura / ModDB which will be monitored by Running With Scissors. We hope to use this as a hub for support and for people to bring attention to mods that we may add to the Desura client for download.

Drop by and talk about the game, and offer any help and support you can. In particular any experiences you have had with the Linux build, and workarounds you may have used to solve problems on your setup.

This game is offensive, politically incorrect, and continually prompts the player to lose their temper and kill innocent (but annoying) bystanders. It's raw and unashamed of the lengths that it will go to offend those who dare to play it. That being said, this game kicks so much ass. Even with some of the glitches it has it is still a solid shooter that dared to go where other games wouldn't dream. this classic game helped pave the way for the kind of moral depravity that we have all grown to love…
