Sick Gaming trajectory

Our new program supporting the creation of an independent game has started. After a productive JAM weekend in February, we received beautiful applications and selected Shaman Garage studio (@shamangarage_) from Pablo San Gregorio and Ivan McGill and their one button story based project.

The narrative studio Shaman Garage will combine their expertise in the fields of experimental comics and game development to create an interactive narrative experience for The Overkill Festival. Under the self imposed constraints of using no words and only one button as input device, Ivan McGill and Pablo San Gregorio will deep into the essence of gameplay and visual storytelling.

Find out about their work on their insta page : @ivanmcgill @pabgre

Once a month Pablo and Ivan, supported by our Zuraida Buter will present the program of our Game Nights following thematic supporting their research. Friday 14 of April is the first of their series!

Once in May and once at the end of August Pablo and Ivan will present the progress of their project to the public with feedback session. Don't hesitate to join to support them!

The gaming experience will premiere at The Overkill festival in November.


To support Shaman Garage studio with feed back and ideas, we are welcoming young players to the program. If you like to play and to experiment, you are curious about the making process of indie game and you are between 15 and 25, this might be for you!

Since Pablo and Ivan are from Spain the program will be in English, but we are able to help translate when necessary.

To become part of the Sick game community, send us a short motivation email to present your self and we'll get back to you to share the program.

You will be welcome once a month with Pablo and Ivan for a group session before Game Night, you will be invited to studio visit in the region and you will be invited to exhibition and festival tours when possible. Of course you will also be the guest of The Overkill festival, later in November.
