Postal developer RWS comes up with music CD

PostalWhile I was growing up, I had a friend that never wanted half measures. According to her, it’s either you do it or you don’t. And if you do, she would always add, take it to the level of the absurd. I haven’t quite figure out yet whatever she meant by that.

Anyway, the phrase “take it to the level of the absurd” always comes to my mind whenever I am reminded of developer Running With Scissors (RWS) and their highly controversial series Postal. The game was actually just a shooter in which the objective was, well, kill every human being. Last October, RWS announced that the series is finally going next-gen by 2008 and not a day before.

While that is still roughly two years from now, RWS already had its hands full with the release of its music CD “Music To Go Postal By.” As the title implies, the collection is inspired by the series so expect it to be classic yet nontraditional, not to mention absurd.

Don’t get what I mean? Imagine this: The sound of rapid fire gun mixed with a melancholic shriek of a human being in pain, then the persistent musicality of boomerang machetes in flight. Add to that piano and guitar and cello. Hmmm…

“It was purely the result of long-time fan demand and an interest on the part of musicians from around the world who were musically inspired by our games,” shares RWS conductor Vince Desi. “Music To Go Postal By” is currently available at the RWS Store for only US$ 10.

And oh, about my friend, she is fine. She didn’t go postal, thankfully. Not a bit.
