* '''Splatshine''', a mini-series of mashups of ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'' and ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine''.

The collective initially debuted as only [[http://smashifiedart.com Smashified]] and started with a bang with the release of an elaborate hoax announcing the coming of VideoGame/{{Rayman}} in ''[=SSB4=]'', which received a wild media coverage before being revealed by Omni himself as a fake. Prior to that, some Omni creations such as VideoGame/{{Bomberman}}, [[VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG Geno]] and various Franchise/{{Kirby}} hats in the style of ''Brawl'' were already shared within the ''Smash'' community but mostly uncredited. Before the "Rayman leak" he also unsuccessfully tried to "leak" VideoGame/{{Klonoa}} on Website/GameFAQs.

Website/GameFAQs. The channel has done 22 characters so far in the ''Smash'' style since then, plus a bunch of trophies based on objects and less noteworthy characters.

While ''Smashified'' initially was the main focus of the channel, side projects were being done in the interrim that expanded on the channel's basic premise of game asset and concept creation. After a series of hiatuses and hints through an AlternateRealityGame, the channel was given an overhaul in 2018 to put more emphasis on development projects like their side work, with ''Smashified'' becoming a sub brand during the change.

Curiomatic runs on interactions with the gaming community, and often collaborate with artists outside the collective to work on projects. ''Smashified'', for example, used fan discussion on Website/{{Twitter}} to decide which characters they would "[[VerbedTitle smashify]]" next. Other projects like ''Snowboard Kids 3'' and ''Bomberman Hero'' also incorporate well-known fans of their respective series for design input.

The collective initially started as '''[[http://smashifiedart.com Smashified]]''', a series of artworks
games. It hosts several shows:
* '''Rerendered''', in which they try to create new art based on existing design and aesthetic, notably {{Retraux}} and [[ArtEvolution outdated]] ones. A subseries named '''Smashified''' specifically aims to create renders
of video game characters in the style of ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' (initially the 3DS/Wii U versions, but eventually shifted towards ''Ultimate'' after its release).
* '''Game Bites''', in which they create various assets
for Wii U imaginary video games. Sometimes they culminate into a '''Vertical Slice''' in which they mix all the previously made assets into a functioning prototype.
* '''Splatshine''', a mini-series of mashups of ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}''
and Nintendo 3DS''. ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine''.
