sxswf: Hand-Held 'Hobo'

Drafthouse launches a 'Hobo With a Shotgun' app

sxswf: Hand-Held 'Hobo'

Hobo With a Shotgun doesn’t screen at SXSW until Tuesday, but you can start gunning away now with a new Drafthouse app.

“Good news – we’re officially in the gaming business!” Caitlin Stevens wrote today on the Alamo Drafthouse’s blog. (And at this point, is there anything the Drafthouse’s ever-expanding empire doesn’t have a hand it?)

The app is for iPhone only – which means, as our paper’s leading Luddite, I can judge its playability based on screenshots alone. Verdict? My goodness, that’s some bloody business. 

You can read more about Hobo With a Shotgun: The Game here. The film screens Tuesday, March 15, midnight, at the Alamo Ritz and again on Wednesday, March 16, 11:30pm, at the Alamo South Lamar.
