POSTAL 2 Interview
(hx) 07:24 AM EDT - Sep,18 2002

GGMania got a chance to chat with Vince Desi, the CEO of Running with Scissors, as he talks about POSTAL 2, the follow up to one of gaming's most controversial games ever. He provided us with both pretty interesting information and four very juicy new screenshots.


GGMania: Ok, who am I speaking with, and what is the story behind developing team Running with Scissors you work for?

Vince Desi: The story is we originally made kiddie games and realized it wasn't funny anymore, so we took out all our suppressed shit and made POSTAL!


GGMania: We are talking about successor of POSTAL, a controversial isometric shooter that was first published in October 1997 for a couple of months before being ripped off shelves! In that title, players could choose to go off the deep end and embark on a spree of mindless violence against pedestrians, the marching band from the local high school and the rest of the local citizenry :) What are the biggest changes in POSTAL 2 over the original POSTAL?

Vince Desi: Never underestimate the POSTAL Dude. POSTAL 2 offer a new 3D first person view in an Action Adventure game style. New weapons, over 100 unique characters, a complete open world with indoors and outdoors, and hey let's not forget Gary Coleman and the Running With Scissors bad ass attitude.




GGMania: I've noticed that you have quite dynamic storyline ;). In one interview there is "Guy woke up, had shitty date, so decided to kill some people", in second it's "crack open War and Peace to page 623 and read for about 17 and half pages"...so I just wish to know if you are willing invest some time in storyline and at least make something like Croteam did with Serious Sam...

Vince Desi: The fast and simple answer is YES. We're real fortunate to have a major Hollywood writer helping us. For now just think MR. Pink!!!!


GGMania: Needless to say that weapons are The POSTAL Dude's best friends right? So, tell our readers how many friends POSTAL Dude will have in this game and how much they will vary? What's your favorite gun in POSTAL 2?

Vince Desi: The POSTAL Dude is a very creative guy, especially when it involves violence. For now my favorite weapon is the scissors. Some of the other outrageous new weapons include a shovel, baton, tazer, cat-silencer, and gas can/matches. And a whole lot more.


GGMania: Running with a gun around the city wouldn't be interesting without NPCs you can shoot at. Can you tell us a bit about NPCs in POSTAL 2?

Vince Desi: Over 100 unique characters that all have their own AI. Everyone lives their life in the game, they go to work, take a break, work some more and then return home to watch TV or spank it!



GGMania: Scientists thinks that playing violent video games like Doom, Wolfenstein 3D or Mortal Kombat can increase a person's aggressive thoughts, feelings etc. What do you think about playing violent games? Do you think that virtual killing really affects the minds of young children?

Vince Desi: We think as long as it stays on the computer its OK!! If a kid takes our game too serious then maybe he shouldn't be playing it but hey it's only funny until someone gets hurt, then its absolutely friggin hysterical!


GGMania: Do you like GTA3? What's your opinion on this game? Could you compare it with POSTAL 2?

Vince Desi: The GTA series started after the original POSTAL. And so while GTA3 is a great and fun game to play but it's the attitude that really separates them. POSTAL 2 has one large open environment but I think we offer a lot more AI and gameplay. GTA3 goes over the top every once in a while but POSTAL 2 lives over the top!


GGMania: What multiplayer modes are you including? What does POSTAL 2 bring to the table that the online player hasn't seen before?

Vince Desi: POSTAL 2 will include multiplayer like you never seen before, and for the stand alone product, we will be even more relentless in our efforts to punish everyone with laughter.


GGMania: When can we expect to see the game hit store shelves?<

Vince Desi: With the technology delays, we've decided to release POSTAL 2 in the 1st quarter of 2003 so you'll start to see a lot more coming soon. As for the future, trust me our minds are full of good sickness.


GGMania: Now, we are at the very end of this interview. Do you have an uncontrolled wish to say something or we are done? :)

Vince Desi: THANKS and start prayin cause it wont be long before the POSTAL Dude is on your ass.

She's puking, moron!

Didnt play the original Postal, but will most definately get Postal 2! I just hope the game doesnt turn out sh!t because of crappy AI. Everytime you hear a developer talk about their superior AI, it's really just a bunch of random() commands... oh well, I'll at least be able to set people on fire and cut them up with a scissor! w00t!

I ain't never seen a bird piss outa the back of her knee before ! And I've seen some wierd shit !

If you havent played the origional Postal, you should. It would run far beyond smooth on any current machine, and its a hell of alot of fun! Also, youd better appreciate the NON corporate whores that they are. The make creative and origional games, not Halflife/Diablo/rehash/copy/paste products.

By far postal was the best thing that ever happened to the gaming community. Postal is the game that made the GTA series possible. Its also the game that opened the door for every over the top violence we see in computer gaming today. Agreed with the previous comment, you want to see creativity and non corporate whoring in action look no further than the original postal. Im sure the next installment will continue the tradition.

You just got 2 see the POSTAL 2 videos located here http://www.postalnetwork.org/downloads/postal2/e3090602.shtml everytime i see that cat it cracks me up !

tdkmeposted - Sep, 19 2002 - 09:29
I own the first postal game and it still is a good game to play. very basic id like killing. Very good to just waste everyone that gets in your way! Postal 2 makes it look more real and put things that normally would happen but not appear in another game, show up in this. These creators are not afraid of anything! This game will show how much the public can take. You thought GTA3 was bad? This will have those bible thumpers covering their childs eyes and run for cover!

MiniGun2TheHeadposted - Sep, 19 2002 - 17:39
I Can't Wait! The First POSTAL Was So Damn Excellent! DEFFINATELY No Corporate Whores Over There At Running With Scissors Which Makes Them The Shit!

Lard Assposted - Sep, 19 2002 - 18:59

AMSTERDAM, Holland (Reuters) -- A Dutch gay activist is fighting to outlaw the import of a U.S. computer game in which the player can shoot homosexuals, junkies, dogs and cats. Henk Krol, editor of the leading Dutch gay newspaper, has asked prosecutors to start court proceedings and is lobbying parliamentarians to outlaw the game, called "Postal 2."
