Running With Scissors are back, with a surprise release of POSTAL 4: No Regerts on Steam and a Linux version is looking likely in future.

Naturally, someone posted on Steam to ask about the possibility of Linux support. This is something that happens a lot but here it's a bit different. RWS already supported Linux with multiple previous Postal releases.

RWS did reply, to say:

Probably after it's out of Early Access, but not before as managing two builds will slow us down at this point.

After that, they also said:

All of our other games have ended up on Linux even before it was cool ;) So yes, it's likely P4 will get a Linux client in the future.

So if you do want to see this gain actual Linux support, it might be worth politely letting them know in this linked forum post. I've given it my vote, as I love these ridiculous sandbox-style satirical open-world action games. Having the latest version of it on Linux would be sweet.

It should go without saying for those that know of Postal but for those that don't, this trailer is very likely NSFW:

A little more about it:

POSTAL 4: No Regerts is a satirical and outrageous comedic open world first person shooter and the long-awaited true sequel to what’s been fondly dubbed as "The Worst Game Ever™", POSTAL 2! (No third game is known to exist.)

Interestingly, they seem to be putting in some effort to allow a more peaceful play-through this time too. Not that I expect many people to actually play it like that, although the challenge of it could be amusing.

Hat tip to the many many people sending this in.

Not better actually, since you only show up as a Linux wishlist if you manually go into the buried Steam platform preferences and only tick Linux. It's a nice idea but the execution of the feature needs improving.

Can't hurt to just do both.

It is playable on Linux if the script from https://github.com/z0z0z/mf-install is executed. I played it yesterday, it's very glitchy and looks like a very, very early draft of a game, but I had no crashes. It would probably be a better idea to wait until it gets more content and less bugs, but I regert nothing.
