Running with Scissors Working on Next Postal Sequel

by Rainier on March 17, 2005 @ 8:46 a.m. PST

In a long interview with the Washington Post, Running with Scissors revealed that it is working on the next Postal sequel, code-named "Catharsis." The year is 2007 and the Dude has just left the town that was destroyed in the last game after accidentally finding and setting off a "weapon of mass destruction" misplaced by the U.S. government. He flees the atomic Armageddon and finds himself at a political rally for a presidential candidate in a nearby suburb. The plot unfolds as the player attempts to get random temp jobs that will cause him to cross paths with the presidential candidate, the Taliban, environmental advocacy groups and others. Except there's a twist: The next Postal will be a violent video game about nonviolence. You'll still have access to a slew of weapons, but you'll be rewarded with a better outcome if you play peacefully.
