The PS3 Scene may be very very slow due to SCEA's MIB attorneys and legal actions against hackers but Spanish dev, Hermes, brings us Pintor. Pintor is a rather humorous homebrew puzzle game which pokes fun of Sony's aggressive PS3 related lawsuits at PS3 hackers such as fail0verflow, graf_chokolo and of course, Geohot. In the game, you play the role of "John Doe" and must avoid SCEA's MIB attorneys. Hermes created the game as a tribute to fail0verflow's git repository, which was ordered to be removed Sony's attorneys. The game is based on a video game that Hermes previously made for the PS2 and that has been ported to countless systems since.
fail0verflow repository is a tribute for the old fail0verflow repository with LEGAL TOOLS deleted cowardly by github.com because of threats from licks-ass guys called “attorneys of SCEA”.
The original code was forked more than 1300 guys (the second most forked repository in github.com) who wanted to defend our rights as consumers, owners of our computer / console called PS3, and like non-profit independent programmers. But again, in a system where money is more important than justice, freedom and people (you are a number) the threat of one has much greater weight and repository was deleted unceremoniously and without one word to explain the exact reason.
Because it, i was create this tribute that shows we “evil” usage of the old fail0verflow tools.
‘Pintor’ is an old videogame made by me, initially, for PS2 console. It is strongly inspired in a spectrum+ game that i remember fondly. I have done ports for a lot of consoles: PS2/GP2/GP2X/PSP/WII and now PS3.
In this case it is based in the GP32 port, including the famous geohot MP3 “The Light It Up Contest” ()
I think it is a very funny song ^^ and is suitable for the symbolism of this respository (also i use a black background representing the PS3).
Pintor: the game
You are John Doe and must walk the way to complete the boxes to change to the next screen. But you have to be careful because SCEA and their attorneys are looking to bite your ass. Fortunately, the enemies do not think and are blinded by greed. So as donkeys, they pulled forward and forward, without knowing for sure where are you (here they cannot ask to github, google, paypal personal datas of John Doe)
