'Postal 4: No Regerts' Available On Steam Early Access - Screens & Trailer

Postal 4: No Regerts is a satirical and outrageous comedic open world first person shooter.

The Postal Dude is back!

Several years have passed since the events that devastated the once proud town remembered as Paradise. The only two to walk away from the cataclysm unscathed, the hapless everyman known as the Postal Dude and his loyal companion Champ, drive aimlessly through the scorching deserts of Arizona looking for a new place to call home. After a fortuitous gas station rest stop ends with their car, trailer home, and the rest of their worldly possessions stolen, all the Dude’s seemingly got left to his name is his canine cohort and his bathrobe, and neither of them smells all that great. However, on the horizon, the duo glimpses an unfamiliar and dazzling town that beckons to them. What untold prospects lie within? Fame? Fortune? Maybe a bidet or two? Edensin awaits.

Postal 4: No Regerts is the long-awaited true sequel to what’s been fondly dubbed as "The Worst Game Ever", Postal 2! (No third game is known to exist.)

To date, we’ve been 100% self-funding this title through Steam royalties, but now we need to grow the team further, and we believe involving the community is the best approach towards making the best Postal game ever happen. We considered a few alternative options of funding, such as approaching publishers, many of whom showed interest but ultimately backed away due to fears around the controversy P4 may generate. We also considered a Kickstarter but then decided selling a paper pitch to the community was not our style. We want to show and demonstrate actual gameplay before looking to the community for help.

Working with a publisher this early on would have no doubt seen us having to hold back on some of the more outrageous ideas we have planned (not to mention most of them wouldn’t touch it with a 10 foot dildo), so going at it our own way with the community’s support is an exciting prospect for us. This way, we can make sure we’re prioritizing the things that are central to our fans and players as well as getting a clear idea of what features you would like for us to implement and what aspects of the game you feel are the most important.

We had entertained the idea of calling it something like The Real Postal 3 or even Postal 2x2 as a play on words. We could have also confused everyone and done the whole reboot thing by simply calling it “Postal”. Ultimately, though, Postal 4 makes it clear that it’s the next big game in the Postal franchise.

Postal 4 is being made in-house by much of the same team that brought you Postal 2: Paradise Lost and Postal Redux – a team that understands and respects the community and what made Postal 2 the timeless classic it is. Postal 4 will be the true sequel that fans have been craving for well over a decade!

Rick Hunter was not available to reprise his role as the Dude for Postal 4. We are, however, excited to announce that industry veteran Jon St. John, best known as the voice of Duke Nukem among many other memorable characters in his venerable career, has joined us, and we are very pleased with his take on the Dude.

Postal 4, much like Postal 2, will be split up into 5 days (Monday to Friday) with a new set of errands to finish each day. As you progress through the days, the game’s map will open up to reveal more of the world.
