We can’t begin to say how excited we are here at Running With Scissors. The long hours, the work and the planning have finally ended and we are more than proud to present you with the results of our labors. We definitely won’t say it has always been easy. There has been a lot of blood, sweat and tears along the way counteracted with generous amounts of profanity to ease the pain. Unforeseen problems and conflicts were continuously rearing their ugly heads causing delays and setbacks but we stuck to our guns (and shovels and various other types of weaponry) and refused to give in.

Thank you to everyone who worked so diligently on this project. It took a lot of thought, a lot of time and a great deal of effort to achieve what we anticipate will become a jewel in your collection of POSTAL video games. Most of all thank you to our loyal fans. We realize and appreciate that it is our fans who have kept Running With Scissors and the POSTAL video games going strong all these years.

Our goal has always been to do our best to provide whatever our fans asked for. As a direct result of your requests, we are pleased and proud to present PARADISE LOST. We think the end result is worth the wait and sincerely hope you will agree.

About This Game:

Ten years after his Apocalypse Weekend escapades, The Postal Dude finally returns!

Paradise Lost is a full-fledged expansion pack for POSTAL 2 continuing the saga of the POSTAL series. Join the Dude as he ventures back into his former hometown embarking on a quest to find his lost dog. Not all is what it seems, as the once tranquil (relatively speaking) town and its citizens have been transformed in the wake of the nuclear destruction. Dare to enter the varied Zones as you cross the Arid Desert, trek through the dense Rainy Foliage, freeze your nuts off in the Nuclear Winter, and roam under the Ashen Skies. Meet the many mysterious factions comprised of the towering, the miniature, the zombified, and everything in between and use your radiant people skills to attempt to ally yourself with their enigmatic leaders, ranging from former child stars to terrifying demonic udder-wielding beasts! Fierce Lawmen, crazed Bandits, deranged Doomsday Survivalists, and a phallic child's toy mascot await. Do whatever it takes to survive! Wait in lines! Use vending machines! Buy toilet paper! Journey to where it all began to rescue your loyal companion!

Prepare to delve into the post-apocalyptic world of Paradise Lost!

Key Features:
  • A complete singleplayer campaign: Brave Monday through Friday with twists and turns each day.
  • Free roam, non-linear, errand-based gameplay: Go do your daily chores or just screw around as you aimlessly run amok in the town!
  • Peaceful vs. Violent decisions: Choose to be a wussy pacifist or wipe out everyone in your way. Hey, it's the apocalypse, so you'll probably fit in!
  • New arsenal and items: Take out some unlucky punks with the Revolver! Enact wasteland justice with the Lever-Action Shotgun! Whack some weeds and perhaps other meatier subjects with the Weed Whacker!
  • Dual-wielding: Double your fun with double the gun!
  • Boss battles: Settle some scores once and for all mano a mano.
  • Full controller support: Piss on strangers from the comfort of your couch!
  • The Dude's original voice: No bogus imposters here!

Please help me. My very best buddy “Champ” has gone missing and I really want him to come back home. I have thoroughly searched all our favorite walking and playing spots but he is nowhere to be found. There are no paw prints, or drool puddles or sloppy dog droppings to show he ever even existed. Like a puff of smoke in the wind he just seems to have vanished without a trace. Where could he have gone!

This little guy is a bit frail and needs someone to look after him. All I have now to show he is mine is his picture. He means the world to me and I am very worried about his health and well-being. You probably have pets of your own and know how badly you would be affected by their loss. Won’t you please help me find him? If you haven’t seen him won’t you ask your friends and neighbors if they noticed a little lost dog in their neighborhood. Please have a heart and help Champ come back home.

Please Retweet, Share, Like and pass this post around to help us find our Lost Dog.

As a reward you can view the just released trailer for POSTAL 2: Paradise Lost!

We are also having an iAMA on Reddit to celebrate the launch! It'll start at 11 AM PDT/2 PM EDT on April 17th, Launch Day!.

While it's not quite out yet, you can also take a look at the brand new POSTAL 2: Paradise Lost Steam Store front!

You can also pick up POSTAL 2 for 90% off to get ready for Paradise Lost!

The Final Paradise Lost Mystery Image #11 of 11

What! Who in the Hell is this Dude and what is he up to? Does anybody know? He actually looks kind of perplexed about what’s going on himself. Hopefully we will find out what’s happening in time to get in on the action ourselves. After all, time is running out and nobody likes to get left behind.

There is only a few more short days to go. If you are anything like the gang down here at Running With Scissors, you have your fingernails chewed to the quick with anticipation. You know that the town of Paradise will soon be on the receiving end of action like it has never seen before. Make sure you are ready and able to give the Dude a helping hand when he is fearlessly fighting the battle of a lifetime.

POSTAL 2 is 90% off right now on Steam in celebration of the soon to be launched PARADISE LOST! You can't buy Paradise Lost quite yet. As mentioned earlier it's still a couple of days away, but you can also check out the new Paradise Lost store page for a sneak peak at what is in store!

Paradise Lost: Mystery Image #10 of 11

Some of us are lucky enough to get a good one but they are few and far between, others curse the day this person’s mother and father met. Who am I talking about? The Boss of course!

There are at least two different types of bosses. The good Boss will congratulate us for a job well done or quietly point out our faults and offer advice or help on how to improve our job performance. Unfortunately, most Bosses seem to be of the opposite sort.

The bad Boss is a loud-mouthed menace with a God complex. He/She seems to take sadistic delight in finding fault and humiliating us in front of our fellow workers. The Boss might not say it in so many words but when they are done putting you down there is little doubt that you are the stupidest person on the face of the earth. Your snickering co-workers choose to forget it could be their turn next and just breathe a sigh of relief it’s not them doing the groveling right at the moment.

So what kind of Boss will you find in Paradise Lost? Will they be a good Boss looked up to and admired by their workers? Maybe it will be a good Boss just having a bad day or perhaps the Boss will resemble one of the fiends of Hell let loose on the poor unsuspecting workers.

Find out for yourself on April 17, 2015.

Sometimes when you think you are going to be fired it doesn't hurt to go in and suck up to the boss. When you think you might be fired upon by the boss's shotgun it might be best to give credit  to your co-worker and send them in first.

Paradise Lost: Mystery Image #9 of 11

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Terrorist knows. It can be a beautiful day, birds singing, children playing and people just going quietly about their business when suddenly, without warning the unthinkable occurs. Anything vile or outrageous can happen when a Terrorist strikes and you can be sure it’s not for the good of anyone. It makes no difference if the victims of these monsters are innocent or not. Anyone who happens to have the misfortune to be in the targeted area will probably die. The peace can be suddenly and unexpectedly shattered as bullets and screams fill the air and bombs split the silence with a deafening roar.

Will Terrorists find a home in Paradise Lost or will they unmercifully attack its unsuspecting citizens. Will the buildings become dust and ruble and the people blood covered body parts. Who knows? Maybe this time the Terrorist just wants to settle in and become your friendly next-door neighbor. I sincerely hope not. Just the thought of coming into contact with these brutal, unfeeling dregs of society is enough to make your blood run cold.

Paradise Lost: Mystery Image #8 of 11

For those of you that don’t already know, there is nothing like the feeling you get when your favorite mutt is waiting faithfully at the door for you when you get home. It doesn’t really matter how long you have been gone, the wagging tail that just about shakes the whole body, the whines and slobbery licks of welcome always let you know you have been missed. You know this is one little buddy that worships you and will do his best to protect you even to the cost of his own life his life.

So what happened? What turned our best four legged friends into vicious killers who are intent only on ripping us limb from limb? Where did these snarling, drooling, muscle-bound monsters come from? Surely Champ would not be found among these blood drenched fiends unless he was there to protect his one true friend. Is there any way to eradicate these salivating, sharp-toothed, murderous beasts before they butcher us all? We may have no choice but to stop the carnage by exterminating these wildly crazed brutes. We only know steps must be taken quickly to control the animals before they tear us apart and dine hungrily on our bleeding flesh and broken bones.

Paradise Lost: Mystery Image #7 of 11

Ghosties and goblins and things that go bump in the night are just child’s play when it comes to this fellow. One look at this creature and you know he is evil incarnate. You can almost feel the wickedness vibrating off this demon’s skin if you have the misfortune to draw too close to him.

Terror and a pressing urge to flee seems to fill the air and strike when this disgusting horror even thinks about Paradise. Is there anyone or anything that can not only stand up to this devils spawn but actually live to tell about their horrendous experience. Will Paradise be able to rid itself of this nightmare or is it doomed forever to serve this creation of Hell? Will you be the very hero we seek to rid Paradise of this monster or will you fail miserably. This fiend must be returned to Hell as quickly as possible before the town suffers the wrath of Satan himself.

Paradise Lost: Mystery Image #6 of 11

We likely all have had the misfortune to run into one of these dim bulbs at one time or another. There is nothing one of these miserable creatures likes better than to pick on someone who can’t defend themselves. The Bully mistakenly seems to think that other people will admire him for picking on someone vulnerable to his attacks. He probably thinks it makes him look like a big man when he is putting the little guy down.

Typically loud-mouthed and possessed of a lower mentality than the regular guy, the Bully is the first to run away if his own well-being is threatened. What seemed like a good joke when it was happening to someone else suddenly isn’t quite so funny when it happens to the Bully.

Has our Bully finally learned his lesson or is he out to have a real good time demonstrating his Neanderthal mentality to a bunch of disinterested onlookers?

OMG! What is that? One thing for sure is I hope it’s friendly. Hey maybe it’s just some guy that spent too many hours at the gym pumping up a bunch of already over-pumped muscles. That’s likely just a pointy hat he is wearing but I don’t know what those other things sticking out of his back are. Angel wings maybe or some kind of unusual and unfortunate birth defect?

Man what is that nasty stench that’s all around him? Does anyone besides me smell the distinctly foul odor of open sores and rotting milk? Whatever it is, it seems to be seeping from this repulsive man mountain. His voice is like the roar of a dozen freight trains and attracts what looks like an army of the dead. I don’t know about you but I think I’m going to do my best to try and steer clear of this walking, talking steroid factory and his decomposing minions.

POSTAL Rejected from Google Play

We know many of you have been excited that POSTAL is going to be made available on Android devices, but it seems we have hit a bit of a snag. Unfortunately it appears POSTAL has been rejected from Google Play due to it containing "GRATUITOUS VIOLENCE". Sadly this means it won't be welcomed alongside the Grand Theft Auto series, Carmageddon and horde of Zombie games on Google Play. For those that don't know, Google Play is the premier store for Android Apps. There are other outlets though so fear not POSTAL fans. While this is disappointing for us, it won't stop you from being able to play POSTAL on your favourite Android device. We are looking into Humble Store, Amazon and other Android App stores. We will let you know when the time comes where you can pick up your Android copy of POSTAL.

Not to worry though, POSTAL 2:Paradise Lost will still release on Steam on April 17th, 2015!

UPDATE: Out now on Amazon!

Hang on to your hats and just wait until you see this tasty treat. Any guesses to who this curvaceous cutey can be? We will give you a hint. You might not remember but you have heard from this gorgeous young lady before.

We can tell you love is in the air when it comes to this bodacious babe. Wedding bells might even be ringing. This eye-catching little sweetie might be a bit skinny but she is no stick-in-the-mud either. This dazzling darling is very agile and can put up a good fight to get what she wants. She proves that she’s really got the moves and is more than willing to show them off. We have to say there are not too many guys who wouldn’t be more than proud to be seen with such a stunning beauty on his arm.

Well have you guessed who it is yet? We at RWS are working hard to make sure you can see first-hand if you guessed correctly. Will romancing this beauty result in Paradise Lost?

That's four down, seven Mystery Images to go! Stay tuned, another Paradise Lost Mystery Image will be released tomorrow!

It's Easter in Paradise

OH NO! Word has reached us that there has been a blood bath down in the woods once again this year. The smashed remains of once carefully decorated eggs are scattered everywhere and we have been informed there is a crazed bunny threatening revenge on anyone foolish enough to set foot near his hideaway. The Bunny is prepared to defend and protect what is left of the eggs with his life. We know we have to get rid of this mad rabbit so we can gather up some of those pretty Easter eggs for ourselves. Just make sure if you go down to the woods to claim your share that you are heavily armed. Good luck on your Easter egg hunt but we feel with public safety in mind we must repeat the following warning.


If you plan on heading into the forest today, you might want to be heavily armed.

Disappearances have been reported near the Paradise Area.

Victims were last seen following a trail of “Eggs” into wooded areas. If these eggs are spotted, do NOT follow them! Report them to your local P.M.C.R.D. officer immediately!

If you have any information regarding these disappearances, please contact the Paradise Mythological Creature Removal Department immediately.

Together we CAN stop this!

Paradise Mythological Creature Removal Department

This is just a reminder that there is a special Easter themed holiday event available for you to enjoy today!

Paradise Lost: Mystery Image #3 of 11

Okay, no matter how long and hard you look at this picture, we know you are never going to be able to guess who this is. This guy shoots straight and fast and can be a dangerous man to handle. He may be totally inflexible when it comes to getting his own way. As stiff as he is, a little stroking has been known to calm him down. Want more of a clue? The ladies love this pleasantly plump guy.  He is a real sharp dresser when it comes to his golden jewelry. He also may be found on occasion wearing some pretty snappy raincoats.

Have you guessed yet? Oh shoot, I guess we can give you a bit more of a hint since we don’t want you to be totally stumped. This is one character who really has the balls to get out there and get the job done. You can be sure he will be making some slick moves and getting lots of action in Paradise Lost.

Paradise Lost: Mystery Image #2 of 11

As we promised, it's time for another little update to let you see what’s happening at RWS. Just a small teaser to get you going and make you a tiny bit more excited for the release of Paradise Lost. Now who could that diminutive fellow be I wonder? Have you got the teensiest bit of an idea? You can make your best wee guess but your still just going to have to wait a short time to find out.

You know even a little bitty character in our games usually plays a big role. There really are no minuscule roles when it comes to Paradise Lost. Being small in stature doesn’t mean their temper is also microscopic and believe me, a pint-sized character is nothing to trifle with.
