Sickhouse Game nights are now curated together with studio Shaman garage to support the making of their game. This second edition is about alternative controllers. You are invited to play and give your feedback to Pablo and Ivan to help them in their research.

Ivan and Pablo will be present and introduce their studio and the one button project during the Colliders meeting. (starting at 17.00)

We will be playing :

- Guitar Hero from RedOctane & Harmonix

Guitar Hero is a series of music rhythm game video games first released in 2005, in which players use a guitar -shaped game controller to simulate playing primarily lead, bass guitar, and rhythm guitar across numerous songs.

A Classic game that everyone knows with a classic alternative controller everyone knows. :)

- Buzz Junior (PS2) from Magenta Software

In Buzz Junior, every player can pick their own coloured monkey, either blue, orange, green or yellow, and controls them using their Buzz! Buzzer. Each controller has four coloured buttons with a red buzzer on top. Some games simply use the Buzz! button, while others use the four coloured buttons.


GNOG is a tactile 3D puzzle game about exploring whimsical monster heads and the secret worlds inside them. Filled with eye-catching designs, lively interactions, and a rich, reactive soundtrack, the hand-crafted heads come to life as you grab, poke, spin, pull, and play with each charming contraption.

(we might even manage the VR version)

- Giant NES controller Tkkrlab

The biggest NES controller you've ever seen to control a great selection of retro games!

- Keyboard Mandala if we manage, any support is welcome!

Keyboard Mandala is a musical and colorful experience, playable with a synthesizer as the controller. The first player, as a traveler, wanders through an initially empty desert, using a Xbox 360 controller. The second one, as a musician, populates the environment with objects and colours by playing the piano.
