About Postal 2 Game:
The game is set in the fictional town of Paradise, and it tells the story of “The Postal Dude.” The player can choose how violently or passively he responds to different situations. The player moves around the open world to do his chores, with his choices affecting the setting.
The game got a lot of attention because of its violent gameplay and caused a lot of controversies.
Players take on the role of the Postal Dude, a tall and thin red-headed man with a goatee, sunglasses, a black leather trench coat, and a T-shirt with a gray alien’s face on it.
The Postal Dude lives in a run-down trailer behind a house in the small town of Paradise, Arizona, with his nagging wife, who is only called “The Bitch.” The game’s levels are broken up into days of the week, with Monday as the start and Friday as the end.
At the start of each day, Postal Dude is given a list of tasks to do, like “get milk,” “confess sins,” and other seemingly simple tasks.
The goal of Postal 2 is to finish all of the tasks that need to be done over the course of the week.
Postal 2 is a fully open 3D world with several NPCs to engage with. Players don’t have to be very violent when they play as The Dude and go for a walk in his shoes for a week in the game. Players can fight the cops, run errands, fight terrorists, and do pretty much anything they want in the game.
