Live a week in the life of "The Postal Dude"; a hapless everyman just trying to check off some chores. Buying milk, returning an overdue library book, getting Gary Coleman's autograph, what could possibly go wrong?

Blast, chop and piss your way through a freakshow of American caricatures in this darkly humorous first-person adventure. Meet Krotchy: the toy mascot gone bad, visit your Uncle Dave at his besieged religious cult compound and battle sewer-dwelling Taliban when you least expect them! Endure the sphincter-clenching challenge of cannibal rednecks, corrupt cops and berserker elephants. Accompanied by Champ, the Dude's semi-loyal pitbull, battle your way through open environments populated with amazingly unpredictable AI. Utilize an arsenal of weapons ranging from a humble shovel to a uniquely hilarious rocket launcher.

Collect a pack of attack dogs! Use cats as silencers! Piss and pour gasoline on anything and everyone! YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO!

Key Features:

  • Aggressive vs. Passive: POSTAL 2 is only as violent as you are.

  • One large non-linear world.

  • Explore the world and accomplish your errands at your own pace.

  • Interact with Non-Player Characters

  • Survival Mode: If you choose to play as a pacifist, you will still have to deal with the NPC's who may also go POSTAL!

  • Based on the Unreal Editor: Easy to use and very powerful, with many mods already available from the community.

New Features:

  • Added A Week In Paradise (AWP)

    A much requested feature was for us to add the updates from the very popular AWP mod into the base POSTAL 2 game. This means it is now possible to play POSTAL 2 and Apocalypse weekend in one playthrough. More than just a simple copy and paste, we have tweaked and improved many aspects of the game along the way.

  • The amount of vocal variety has been massively increased, including race specific dialogue.

    5 new voice classes in total! Also adds more situational dialogue for NPC's such as seeing cats, and being on fire. There are even a few more Dude lines now too.

  • Dismemberment from Apocalypse weekend is now a feature of the entire game.

    One of the best new features of the Apocalypse weekend expansion pack was the dismemberment feature, and we have now rolled it back to the entire campaign.

  • Added new weapons (from the Eternal Damnation total conversion) so now there are more weapons to GO POSTAL with:





    Knuckle dusters


    Flame Thrower

    Grenade Launcher


    Sawn off Shotgun


    Baseball bat

  • Greater variation in NPC and Zombie appearance.

    NPC’s how carry bags, wear hats, shades and sport some funky hairdos. These are not the somewhat shabby one’s you saw in the original AWP mod but totally new ones made to a much higher standard.

    We have also included a much greater variation in Zombies, courtesy again of the Eternal Damnation modification.

  • Added 68 Steam Achievements!

    There is also an in game achievement system for the benefit of future DRM free builds.

  • Improved widescreen compatibility, including tripled headed solutions.

    The widescreen stretching and hud issues are now fixed, and we also made the effort to get ultra wide screen working correctly, should you own an Eyefinity/Surround/Triplehead set up.

  • Added the much requested FoV slider to the performance menu and V-sync to the video options.

  • Some minor visual updates.

    You can now see through windows, plus some other things here and there.

  • Added launcher to give the ability to change settings before you start the game.

    A small number of people were affected by a problem where the game would crash on launch unless the video settings matched the resolution of their desktop. This will allow users to set these options before they launch the game and save having to dig around configuration files. Furthermore it now allows access to the MP game via the desktop shortcut.

  • Added an option for micro-transactions!

Reviews for POSTAL 2

Aahhh, that's the stuff

THE. BEST. GAME. EVER. MADE. IN. HUMAN. EXISTENCE!!! -Game updates don't kill the game -This is a game launched in 2003, the year a fair amount of steam users were born in, and it is still updated regularly -Funny as hell -Entertaining -Anti PC and SJW -When on sale probably costs less than your lunch at school/college -Quality expansion pack which is also cheap as chips -Even the disappointing Apocalypse weekend expansion is entertaining -Can be mind-numbingly easy or straight from Satan's brain, lots of difficulties This game clearly isn't for everybody. The only audience that can enjoy it has to have thick skin and handle racist remarks pretty well. It's extremely offensive for some. I just happen to love that kind of humour. It handles the violence pretty damn good. You can beat the game without murdering anyone. But... you... simply... can't resist. This game will turn you into a psychotic maniac but if you CAN resist you'll get the "Thank you for playing, Jesus" message. Game is pure fun and nothing but fun, perfect for relaxing and stress-relieving after a shitty day. 100/100, would definitely recommend.

The mundane made awesome

Ever have one of those days where you need to go and get milk, but first you need to pick up your paycheck from work? Then after receiving your paycheck, your office gets swarmed with anti-gamer zealots packing assault rifles? If that's happened to you, then Postal 2 is right up your alley. Following the mundane day-to-day happenings of the life of the Postal Dude, this game sets you on a quest to check tasks off your to-do list. Every day (days are basically the "levels" of Postal 2) features a new list of stuff you need to do. Whether it's picking up milk, getting your petition signed, confessing your sins, or pissing on dear old Dad's grave, there's no shortage of stuff to do. But, along the way, everything that could possibly happen during these chores ends up happening. A terrorist attack here, a kidnapping by rednecks there, every day brings multiple challenges for you to overcome in any way you see fit. That's where the weapons come in! Postal Dude has a ton of weapons at his disposal. From simple pistols, shotguns, and assault rifles to sledgehammers, shovels, and cow heads, there are implements of destruction aplenty for you to use. And this game is violent. One of my favorite things to do in this game is playing fetch with my dog using severed heads. Did I mention there's a dog? Yeah, there's a dog. And you can play fetch with him. Using severed heads. That you've pissed on. If all of this sounds fun to you, go ahead and pick it up! Also be sure to get the Paradise Lost DLC while you're at it to add even more of everything. Buy this and regret nothing!

Great Game from Great Developers

It's hard to believe Postal 2 was released 13 years ago. 13 years! While the game shows its age today, I can only see it as a high point back then. Running With Scissors is still supporting this game after all this time. That's understandable, given this is the only successful project from them. However, it also shows the love the developers have with their own work and that's awesome. In 2015 an expansion was released, called Paradise Lost, and it keeps the same quality level of the main game (maybe even more). Postal 2 is coherently known to be silly and gruesome. The humor is awesome, and it even features Gary Coleman in ways that made me drop tears from laughing. What's cool too is that this game is still fresh and unique today. You control Postal Dude and your goal is to survive five days (one week if you play the longer campaign), doing simple things like getting milk and returning a book. Of course it's not that easy, and things quickly take turns to the often bizarre but always funny situations. It's your choice how gruesome the game will be, because you can complete it without killing anyone. Overall, it's a nice game that is more worth to play today than it has ever been.

Extreme Gore, Violence, and Absurd Humor

...That is, if you use mayhem. It may all seem normal for the Postal guy. Just fetch something and do chores. However, POSTAL 2 was never meant for such simplicity. Quite often, players will indulge themselves by commencing all sorts of indescribable chaos in their environment, most of which I cannot explain in this review. What I can say is, it's different from the normal video game due to the lack of a plot (not like POSTAL 2 needed it) but substitutes it with the "free will" in unleashing devastation, or you can avoid this. It's all up to players. With the Steam version, there's also a workshop which brings back cut content and new ones as well, such as weapons. As a conclusion, only get this game if you don't want to play as a hero and experience a game similar to GTA but with no objectives.

Fun at first, but it gets old quickly

Postal 2 takes a lot of funny (and some terrible) references from the early 2000s and lets you do whatever you want to them, including light them on fire, excrete bodily fluids from your bladder onto them and of course shoot them. However, although this is fun at first, for someone with not a lot of time to play, this gets boring quickly, as I feel unfulfilled while doing this. I feel no progression, no movement, and overall, I feel like I'm not getting anything from the time that I'm spending on this game. Others say it's SR and GTA-esque but I disagree, I feel the game has not aged well, and the loading screens take a long time. I spent $2 on it, and so, I'm not too upset about losing that, but in the end, I did lose that money. My vote is to avoid the game and spend your time on something a little newer, with more story
