Follow Powerhouse Animation on Twitter!


In other E3 news it looks like "Risk:Factions" made a good showing at the convention as well. As we have blogged about before, the animation studio did both the in-game animation and the cinemas for the project. Special thanks to Aaron Simpson, at Cold Hard Flash, for making the intro between the groups. It was a great project.

It looks like they have released several chapters of the animatic to the public:

Chapter 1:

Chapter 2:

Chapter 3:

Chapter 4:

Chapter 5:

Also, via the magic of the internet we finally got a chance to see two of the producers at EA talk about the games and see some of the final gameplay. Both Spencer and Sarah were great to work with and we wish them all the best of luck with the game.

Epic Mickey!

Warren Spector and the fine folks at Junction Point Studios have made news all over the cartoon and gaming world this week, with the showing they put on at E3 for Disney's new Wii game: Epic Mickey.

Powerhouse has been directing and creating the traditionally animated cinemas for the game and we are thrilled to be associated with this project. We are also excited to finally be able to talk about this project.

Also, we just heard it won IGN's awards for the best Wii and Best platforming game at E3!

Here are just a few of the stories and videos from E3 that are floating around:
