We Need to Talk About Kevin

Those of you who know us here at Powerhouse know that we have quite a history with the incomparable Kevin Smith. Back in 2002 Powerhouse worked with Kevin to create a custom arcade game--and cabinet-- called "Jen Saves Ben" as a "Jersey Girl" wrap present for then "it-couple" Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez. The next year, we worked with Kevin and crew to do a test for a potential Clerks feature film, and in 2004 we animated the 8-minute Lost Scene for the Clerks X DVD set.

Now, 10 years later, we are finally revitalizing our relationship with Kevin and the View Askew family with a few exciting new projects! This week, Kevin launched his new Hulu series. The series, called Spoilers, will run for 5 episodes with each one featuring an animated clip from his popular podcast-- Smodcast. The first of these "Smodimations" is available to watch now! Check it out:

You can also watch the full episode, "Girls Just Wanna Have Guns" featuring Carrie Fisher, here:

As if that wasn't enough, we are also working with Kevin Smith on developing a few mobile games for his upcoming "Smarcade" which are slated to release next month at Comic-Con. While we can't say much about these yet, here's a little shout out from Kevin himself about the project:

We promise to post all Kevin Smith-related news as it develops. Keep watching Hulu for new episodes of Spoilers and check out our upcoming Smodimations! If you're attending Comic-Con keep your eyes peeled for the Powerhouse/ViewAskew mobile games!
