POSTAL 2 from Running With Scissors just had a big upgrade for the 20th anniversary and there's lots of improvements to this classic violent first-person adventure.
Quite possibly one of the most ridiculous games ever made, there's so many terrible things you can do in it which is great if you love a bit of dark humour. Not me of course, you would never find me laughing at the ability to give yourself the middle finger in a mirror.
Here's all the new stuff they added:
- Fully compatible with Steam Deck!
- 'Two Weeks In Paradise' game mode! (Paradise Lost)
- Classic Mode! (+ 'Options' Menu)
- Reworked New Game menu with brand new Day Selection and Skip Intro options!
- New “Ludicrous” difficulty!
- Added Quit to Desktop option!
- David Eddings (The original voice of Claptrap from the Borderlands series) as the voice of Pisstrap in Paradise Lost!
- Crackola (dual-wield power-up) and Weapons Vending Machines added to P2 levels!
- The Flipping the Bird feature from PL is now available in P2! This can be performed with a new dedicated button ('G' by default) or by pressing Fire with Empty Hands or Alt Fire with the Petition and other weapons that replace the hands
- Added a few new cheats: ChugIt, ParadiseIsLost, SeekritWeaponzPls, DoubleTheGun, PeeAll, PukeAll, HereKittyKitty!
- Added unique behavior for Cat Silencers made out of experimental cats! (Apocalypse Weekend)
- When you pick up a thrown Scythe or Sledgehammer, it will now auto-switch back to this weapon!
- Added support for customizable Weapon Selector and Inventory Menu!
- NPCs weapon variety option! (random chance of using Eternal Damnation guns)
- Restored some unused POSTAL Dude voice lines!
- Expanded Crosshair Customization!
- Saves with * mark for cheating or Workshop Game are now displayed in yellow color to be more noticeable!
- New effects for Catnip and food use!
- Added Cat Launcher! (Super-fun cheat only weapon)
There's various other improvements too including plenty of bug fixes. Really nice to see this update land, should make it feel a lot better on modern systems.
On Steam Deck specifically, they seem to have done some nice touches like giving a customized controls screen and overall it seems to work great out of the box now. Click screenshots to enlarge.
