The Running With Scissors studio found its beak in the water following the request to carry Postal, its 1997 game, on smartphones and tablets running Android. Indeed, Google refused to put the software online on its Google Play platform.

It turned out that the Mountain View company simply refused to make the game available on its online service, pretending to be some " gratuitous violence " Therefore, the title of Running With Scissors will not be available from other games of the same style such as GTA or Carmageddon.

Despite everything, the development studio intends to try to submit its software to other platforms such as the Humble Store and Amazon App-shop. The title remains available on Steam, however.
