Don't Panic!

It was a week full of big announcements for our friends at Hothead Games. Our favorite Canadian game studio just released the first looks at two upcoming releases. The folks here at Powerhouse were lucky enough to get their hands on both of these projects, and we are so excited to show them off!

On May 25th, in honor of Towel Day (the intergalactic holiday celebrating Douglas Adams), Hothead posted a blog entry in honor of the great writer, and triumphantly announced that they have a new interactive edition of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in the works! Don't believe me?? Check out their awesome launch page!

Powerhouse is in the process of producing a number of animated pieces for this and we could not be more excited about it. Stay tuned to see what Hothead has in store...

In the meantime, they have also released a first look at their upcoming DeathSpank sequel called... (wait for it)... THE BACONING. Yes, you heard me right. Check out the trailer and pay special attention to the awesomely bacon-tastic logo-- Powerhouse worked with the folks at Hothead to design this, and we think it's just delicious.

We wanted to give a shout out and congratulations to the Hothead team. They are always great to work with, and we are looking forward to these exciting new projects!

Stay tuned for more news in the coming weeks as Brad and Rachel venture to LA for e3...

Powerhouse in the Austin Business Journal!

Powerhouse Animation was featured in an article today in the Austin Business Journal! ABJ Writer, Mick Normington, visited us at the studio a few weeks back to pick our brains and experience the wonder that is Powerhouse. He spent the afternoon with us here, learning about the magic of cintiqs... and we even showed him our super secret Animation Button.

Check out the fruits of his labor at the ABJ Entrepreneur and make sure to email, post, and tweet it to all your friends!
