“The Cure” Update

Hello, POSTAL people of all persuasions!

As promised in our last developers update, performance has been improved across the board on most PC configurations, ranging from 5 to 20 fps depending on your set up or area of the game you’re in. We’ll continue to work on performance, and things will keep improving with each passing update from here on out.

In the weapons department, we’ve added a new rapid firing pistol, and changed the Fournicator’s model to look more suitably powerful. We’ve also tweaked some of the core weapon mechanics based on feedback, such as increasing the reload speed on some weapons and decreasing the time it takes to switch between weapons.

Work on improving the cinematics and general presentation continues, and we’ve fixed a ton of bugs (as well as probably introducing a load more!).

While we have left the ability to load old saves and resume your game, it may cause you some issues – so starting a new game is advised.

Finally, what you’re seeing here is only a small amount of the work that’s been done since the last update – Thursday is in fall swing behind the scenes!

Thank you for your continued support!
