Salutations, fine members of the POSTAL community. We come to you today with some exciting news for POSTAL 1! Not only is the title on a 90% off sale for the next week, it has also received a big update with several major improvements.
POSTAL 1 is, of course, the quaint little isometric third person shooter that launched a series and played an important role in gaming history. However, when viewed today in contemporary eyes, it’s often seen as having one glaring problem: the clunky tank control scheme. This control setup has not aged gracefully over time, and we’ve heard the many requests from fans to introduce more modern twin stick type controls. We were able to implement these when we released the game on Android via the Amazon Appstore[www.amazon.com]
, and today, we are happy to announce we have back ported these improved controls to the Windows and Linux versions!
We have also added the following improvements:
- The Special Delivery expansion levels are now relegated to a separate campaign option in the menu due to popular demand.
- The HUD status bar now displays the required percentage of hostiles to eliminate at all times for convenience
- The crosshair is now a floating crosshair instead of the old ineffectual lock-on crosshair and is enabled by default.
- Proper widescreen aspect ratio and monitor support
If your potato was unable to run Hatred, you can now check out the game that inspired its creation while still enjoying the benefits of modern twin stick controls!
Sorry, Mac men and women, we were unable to get these updates ready for you. Fear not, though, as you’ll be receiving the massive and long-awaited POSTAL 2 collective update in the very near future!
