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."
