Final Straw is an extremely adult game depicting gore, violence and controversial political themes hidden underneath the veneer of puerile splatterpunk entertainment. You are very likely to be offended by this game on several levels and Postmortem Studios accepts no responsibility for your reaction if you buy it and are disgusted/upset/go insane.
This game should not be purchased by anyone under the age of 18, though, given that our perverse society has less of a problem with violence than sex, 15 would probably be considered alright, at least in Europe, but then we’re all wrong-headed liberal swine who eat babies over here, right?
Yeah, so, anyway, on your own head be it. Don’t say you weren’t warned.
The cliques, the sneering teachers, the bullying, the pressure to conform… it’s more than anyone should have to take, more than they can take and sooner or later, something… something is going to snap.
One wedgie, one swirlie, one spitwad, one insult too many and something primal trips over in your mind. These bastards need to DIE, every last one of them is a waste of perfectly good atoms and they’ve made your life a living hell these past few years. Time for some payback, time for some REVENGE!
Maybe, maybe they’ll actually realise why you went bugf*ck insane, or maybe – and more likely – they’ll blame computer games, roleplaying games, card games, music, trenchcoats, a lack of faith or the fact that teachers aren’t routinely armed with M60s.
Still, you can hope.

- The fear and disgust of those who catch you playing the game.
Don’t take my word for it! Just read these testimonials from people who haven’t even seen or played the game!
“There used to be some interesting quotes here from people who had never even seen the game and who, nonetheless, had made terribly disparaging comments about it. Now, one of these people decided to kick up a stink about their words being used ‘for commercial purpose’. (Clearly not because it made them look silly, oh no). You know when a TV show gets pulled off the air, despite having millions of happy viewers, just because two people wrote in and complained because they saw the faint outline of a nipple during a shower scene? Yeah. Like that. Now, personally speaking I find this hilarious. Here’s a game, ostensibly about school shootings but more accurately about media hysteria and moral panic and what do we get? Yeah, panic and hysteria. Priceless isn’t it? Regardless, you can imagine the sort of things that were said: ‘disgusting’, ‘awful’, ‘morally reprehensible’, you know how it goes. You’ll have to make do with this instead now, another victory for ‘Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells’. Still, enjoy the game, it’s a good one!”
