Powerhouse Animation recently got the pleasure of working with a number of local Austin companies on a fantastic project called...(wait for it)... Hobo With a Shotgun.

Inspired by the 2007 Tarantino/Rodriguez Grindhouse flick, local director Jason Eisener set out to make his very own Grindhouse-style trailer. When this mock trailer got picked up for a feature length film, Eisener got hooked up with the great folks at the Alamo Drafthouse to help promote it.

Luckily, Powerhouse was along for the ride. Thanks to local companies Gamesalad, Perfect Dork Studios, and Mondo, the Hobo with a Shotgun iphone game is now on the market!

Download it now and YOU too can deliver justice... one shell at a time.

Check out some stills from the game featuring Powerhouse original 16-bit style graphics:

Check out this great article about the game on WIRED!

And come check out our SXSW panel this afternoon (Monday 3/14) at the Austin Convention Center!!


  1. Really awesome work you guys! I'm dying to see the film itself and when I heard about the game I about dropped trough and danced around I was so thrilled. :)

  2. Thanks for the kind words, Strange Kid. Let us know what you think of the film when you see it. It is definately intense.
