Apply 'The Santa Patch' for maximum holiday cheer!
If you want to go on a seasonally-appropriate retro rampage against the jolly fat man, then why not apply the old POSTAL Santa Patch from 1997? It might be older than you are, but it still works, even with the Steam version of POSTAL!

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=824758846

You can download it off the Running With Scissors website, under the 'Downloads' tab - http://runningwithscissors.com/?page_id=785

To apply the patch, simply open 'santa.exe' and hit the 'Setup' button. When you get the directory menu, hit 'Browse' and find your Steam library directory, where you have POSTAL installed, ( ../Steam/Steamapps/common/ ). Then select the POSTAL1 folder, and confirm. Then all you do is hit the 'X-mas' button, and the patch will be applied.

This patch replaces some of the NPC sound effects with very jolly ones, adds some extra festive Dude dialogue, and replaces the Grenadier enemy model with that of ol' Santa Claus himself. It also replaces the Ostrich models with Reindeer ones. It's extra-perfect if you've got your coat color set to red!

Merry Christmas!

Yeah, I remember this thing. Even Rick Hunter recorded some extra voice samples for this patch.

Any way to get something like this for the REDUX version?

It would be too late for that now, and we're all busy with both the deathmatch update, and our new games. Maybe next year ;)
Can the "The Santa Patch" works with the GOG version?

Yup, it should work just fine! Just select the directory where you have your copy of the game installed, and it should be good.

True. At least you have the Santa patch to help you live through these tough times :)
