Running With Scissors let us know via Twitter tonight that they've officially added Linux support to POSTAL Redux, the revamp of the classic brutal shooter.
I remember playing quite a lot of the original Postal in my youth, probably way before I should have been playing such a game. Loved it though, as brutal as it was. Good to see the upgraded version eventually make its way over.
The good news, is that it has cross-platform multiplayer! This update doesn't just add Linux support, it also cleans up a lot of lingering issues with the game like improved loading times, fixes stuttering and so on.
The classic dark and surreal twin-stick isometric shooter returns with a vengeance!
POSTAL Redux is a high definition remake of The Postal Dude's infamous first foray into the world. Prepare to experience his psychological journey with faithfully recreated high resolution visuals, remastered music, sounds, and dialog, and revamped and modernized gameplay. Crazed gunmen out for your blood await you around every corner. The only choice is clear: Get them before they get you. Fight back with a devastating arsenal as you make your way through a violence-stricken town.
It's time to relive the madness of GOING POSTAL!
They also said on Twitter they are working on bringing the Linux version of Postal 2 to GOG, but no ETA on that.
