In Fuzz Dungeon you play as a rat dog witch who escapes her job through a hidden vault and enters the Fuzz Dungeon - a space in between thought and reality, where ideas ruminate in limbo before turning into real life consequences. By entering different buildings throughout the dungeon you take on many different forms from 8-bit style to hand-drawn to a 3d satellite bird that shoots down floating space heads. Travel through an absurdist version of human history as you try and find a sasquatch sex amulet that will, for some reason, enable you to visit the suburbs of the Fuzz Dungeon where you can defeat a sasquatch statue and abolish bad ideas forever.

EtherAxis is an interactive game installation and reflection tool aiming to challenge the inner paradigms that shape our perception of realities. The physical relic that forms the base for this game shape-shifts in different contexts.
The structure of the gameboard emphasises four main axes, each connected to multiple ancient symbols of alchemy, hacked to uncover their original meanings. In this constellation of four interlaced geographic grids, the dreamer wanders through bridging fields on a spatiotemporal axis. Throughout the Overkill, EtherAxis lures you into the streets to find its messages hidden in plain sight, stepping over to the worlds floating in the ether.
EtherAxis is the result of an ongoing collaboration between Camilo García A, Emilia Tapprest, Erik Peters, Federico Poni, Louisa Teichmann & Victor Evink, as part of the Hamburger Community of Live & Art trajectory of Roodkapje. With the participation of Queer Arcana as performers.

Orchid Collector is a video game, a live performance, and a chaotic system on overdrive. It is set in a hypnotic maze made of wildflowers where orchids are scrutinised and identified, collectible cards are played and dream sequences interrupt. Three characters are performed by the members of Fantasia Malware - The Orchid Collector, The Mistress of the Codex and The Maze Runner. Together the trio drive a baroque and bureaucratic system of orchid identification and collection, while careening through lush mazes of twitching and throbbing flowers. In this special version of the game developed for The Overkill Festival, the performers will swap roles multiple times throughout the performance. The audience will determine which identity each performer assumes next, adding a new element of identity chaos to the wreck. Orchid Collector combines digital game development and real time performance to create a fantastical and frantic system, driven by absurd rules and polychromatic insanity.

Game about sexual desireJason
“Imagine how your body is trembling with sexual desire to someone inaccessible. It's so close; you're almost touching. A pungent, sweet body odour spreads, and you can smell it. It's hard to even make a sound. A lump rises in your throat. Your chest squeezes softly, and you feel a slight chill covering your entire body. All you can hear is the rapid, continuous pulse of blood in your ears.”This is how you will crave freedom in "SUNA: RED". As soon as you get a taste of this freedom for the first time, all your barriers will collapse to finally lose yourself in the act of love and union.
