Deep Silver's upcoming shooter game, Homefront: The Revolution, portrays an alternative history scenario in which Jobs is the owner of APeX Computers, a startup built out of a garage in the 1970s.

The game set in the year 2029, depicts the US being occupied by North Korea. It unfolds into a complete timeline of events that detail the designing of the APeX II personal computer (PC) along with alternative historical stories relating to Apple. The PC is depicted as an iPhone-style device called aPhone, which follows numerous other events from 1953.

On the contrary, Crytek's first-person shooter Homefront: The Revolution portrays an entirely different scenario wherein you will be guiding the Resistance movement in guerrilla warfare versus a North Korean military force.

Quite amusingly, developers have even created a Twitter account depicting fictitious aPhone smartphone in boxed photos of APeX Computers.

If that does not amuse you, check out Apple-style mock ads with exciting narrative video about APeX Computers' past and the future:

“For five decades, we’ve been by your side. From making the first computer that was personal, to inspiring the world that’s better shared,” says the voiceover.

“Travelling the endless path of progress, in pursuit of true innovation. We’ve been there from the first heartbeat to the moment they start their journey. Protecting you and your world with vital defense at unpredictable times so that you can make the most of every second. Here’s to 50 years… and here’s to 50 more.”
