POSTAL developers receive US flag flown in Iraq

Running With Scissors, developers of the infamous POSTAL series, claim to have received an American flag as thanks for their support of troops in Iraq. The flag is said to have been the one flown in Iraq on July 4th.

The flag was mailed to Vince Desi, the company's founder, along with two certificates of authenticity.

Says Desi: "We kept getting letters from the troops asking how they could obtain the various POSTAL games, t-shirts and other items. We figured the easiest way was to simply give it to them." Running With Scissors proceeded to make a number of "air drops" of POSTAL games, the company claims.

"This is why we made POSTAL, and why we will continue to exercise our rights and freely express ourselves, because of the great men and women who bravely serve and protect us," said Desi.

Just how serious Desi and Running With Scissors are is perhaps debatable, given how darkly satirical its games are. The company claims its members are long-time supporters of the US military, and want to "show that support in a tangible way."

Yeah, the first few words of the article sum up my reaction. This is strange.

"This is why we made POSTAL, and why we will continue to exercise our rights and freely express ourselves, because of the great men and women who bravely serve and protect us,"

Protect? They are there just to steal the oil.

More game companies should do the same.

I always love posts like this because it brings out the bigots who think a soldier in the army or citizen o a country automatically shares the views his/her government does about the war they are in.

Be it the days of Alexander, World War 2, Iraq, etc, it never ceases to amaze me how people generalize.

On topic: I always wonder how these Running With Scissors guys are still in business, they make the occasional game, hire models and take a ton of pictures, etc.

Well its not like they spend tonnes of money on their games, they just take a simple engine and make a fun game around. Not polished just fun. I know I will be getting postal on 360 when it comes regardsless of reviews.
