  • SICKPROD 2024

The Jam is also the occasion for game makers interested in our Sickprod trajectory to get to know us and get a sense of what the program will be.

Sickprod is a year long mentorship, provided by Sickhouse where a young studio gets the support of the team and mentor Zuraida Buter to develop a new project. Every month the studio will host a game night, after our colliders meet-up, in relatioin to their project. Over the year, The game makers are also invited to join events and meet-uop to meet peers and present their work.At the end of the year the new game/installation is premiere at The Overkill festival.

In 2023 Sickprod supported Pablo San Gregorio and Ivan McGill (shaman garage studio) in the realisation of their game Data Garden (steam)
