Postal Running With Scissors / Ripcord Games 1997

In Postal, one takes over the role of a psychopath ("Postal Dude") who represents the view that his peaceful mountain village urgently needs action. Thus he puts on his black leather coat, and his sunglasses and loads a shotgun. Let the carnage begin. His prey are neighbors (who shoot back!), policemen, highschool bands and even Santa Claus. The game runs in an isometric perspective. Indeed the figures are 3-dimensional, but not very detailed and movement is somewhat pixilated. The scenery is nicely drawn, and creates a certain comic atmosphere. The game has been banned for its sadistic violence in a lot of countries, although actually there is no "mutilation" shown, though victims do crawl around wounded while bleeding on the ground and asking for mercy. (Review by Enrique-Portuondo Ochoa)
The game was unsuccessfully sued by the United States Postal Service for misappropriating the term "postal". In 2007, much-maligned director Uwe Boll made a movie adaptation which more closely followed the plot of Postal 2. It actually was faithful to some of that game's plot points unlike his previous adaptations of games like House Of The Dead and Alone In The Dark. Though it's his best-reviewed movie, that's not saying much.
