Loki Software fired in the following:
Tucson, AZ – Proving again that good taste is no substitute for goodgameplay, outrageous developer Running With Scissors dropped anot-so-dainty-sized turd into Martha Stewart’s videogame punchbowl byannouncing they will join forces with Loki Software to bring thelong-awaited Linux version of POSTAL PLUS(TM) to Windows-wearygameplayers, everywhere.
“There’s something just plain sick and wrong about Linux users,” saidVince Desi, Running With Scissors’ tetanus-tempered edge. “That’swhy we’re so excited to be able to bring these gaming misfits a Linuxversion of POSTAL PLUS – They’re our kind of people!”
“Why did we do it?” said Scott Draeker, President of Loki Software,Inc. “Two words: First Amendment. Besides, it’s nice to playsomething with all the gore of Quake but none of the nausea. Loki,the Norse god of mischief and our namesake, would definitely haveapproved”.
Having hurdled both legislative and litigious obstacles since firstinviting gamers to go POSTAL(TM) back in 1997, Desi has good reasonto brag on the hard-won success of the POSTAL franchise.
Running With Scissors holds a string of international licensingagreements that have made POSTAL a part of the game culture of sucheconomic giants as Japan, Korea and Canada. Desi is equallyconfident that the Linux version of the ever-popular game will onlyincrease its presence in the world marketplace.
“Industry insiders call it ‘having achieved cult status’,” laughedDesi. “We like to call it ‘business as usual.’ No matter what youcall it, though, there’s simply no denying the power of POSTAL – It’ssort of like the ‘power of cheese’ but with a lot more blood andscreaming.”
