Your favorite playful contest is back!

The Ultimate IndieMash (formerly known as Sickhouse Eurogaming) is a playful contest for unique makers from all over the world + a show for online & onsite spectators.

We are moving away from a competition of nations and inviting participants from all the globe to embrace community representation and focus on playfulness. Fear not, we are definitely keeping the kitsch and celebratory vibe!

Hosted live from the Vestzaktheater in Enschede, and streamed all over the world, will have a show full of glitter, live music and of course the presentation of the contesting projects!

Participants will get 3 minutes each to show their game, interactive project, immersive installation or playful performance. At the end of the show, the public and a jury of professionals will vote for their favourite project. The winner receives the Sickest Trophy and gets a spot at The Overkill Festival 2024!

If you are interested in playful culture and you are in Enschede, NL, don't hesitate to attend the Vestzaktheater on May 18 to see the show live! And if you want to watch it but are located anywhere else in the world, no worries, you can follow it it online (we will post the link as the date approaches).

Not only are we looking for the most original, extravagant and alternative playful concepts, The Ultimate IndieMash is also a celebration of diversity within the indie-game community.

Very exciting to have a wonderful live act for the intermezzo, composer, cellist and instrument maker Rafaele Andrade with her KNURL instrument.
