PlayStation 3 Developer Condorstrike has released a new Homebrew Game for the PS3 system called Pointman: The Akkadian Wars . This release is Proof of Concept and not the final vision by the developer. Pointman is designed to give that classic late 80s / early 90s feel of games back in that era with the music and style of this Homebrew creation. View all the details in the Release Quote from Condorstrike.
Pointman: the Akkadian WarsThe game is a throwback to 80′s and 90′s styling and music, all of it was built for you guys as a proof of concept that with some time and creativity cool things can be accomplished. This game will run in CFWs 3.55 and 4.xx. There will be bugs! :P
Powerups are mostly disabled, and there’s a glitch on some textures loading, but it’s rare. I do a small homage to the scene in the credits, but you’ll have to finish the level first, good luck with that…lol, forget about HARD mode, even I can’t finish it, so use EASY.
If you let the MAIN MENU run, you’ll get to see the story, 80′s style.
Basically, avoid the Aliens and drive the ship or mech until you’ve covered the map sectors, scan artifacts if possible, and grab powerups, but then again, they’re disabled.

SINCE THIS IS A POC ALL I CAN SAY IS, HOPE YOU ENJOY IT… CAW!
