MEET THE TEAM

Showcasing the underrepresented

A group of gaming enthusiasts, the team at Streamcast is dedicated to diversifying the gaming industry's workforce and the enhancing the visibility of underrepresented content creators.

Researched conducted games industry trade body TIGA, showed that just 14% of people working in the UK games industry are women. A Creative Skillset report showed that black, Asian or minority ethnic industry representation stood at 4% in 2015. It's even harder to find STATS for people with disabilities or neurotypicals. When you look for the top streamers globally or locally, lists don't stray too far from industry standards, with lists being truly un-representative of gamers today. 

Streamcast are setting out to change this. Through events, content creation and content curation, they are pushing for much improved representation across the business - from esports, to streaming, to the workforce driving it.

ANDY

Co-Founder & Managing Director

Favourite Games:

God of War, Dragon Ball FighterZ, DBZ Budokai 3, Sonic Mania, Smash Ultimate, Tekken, Marvel's Spider-Man, Simpsons Hit and Run, Pokémon Fire Red, Emerald & Diamond

Biggest Gaming Achievement:

100% completing God of War. This is because it has been so long since I last went out of my way to complete a game beyond the story mode and despite the lack of free time, I was so happy when I finally collected everything in such a challenging game.

What Change I Would Like to See:

We are already starting to see it, but more diverse (specifically black) voices and faces in the gaming industry. This means more presenters, streamers, esports gamers and more. 

Non-white gamers make up a huge amount of consumers and I would like to see more of them get the opportunities they deserve. 

TROY

Co-Founder & Director of Strategy

Favourite Games:

Rayman, Little Big Planet, Smackdown vs. Raw 2007, Tony Hawk's Underground, Crash Bandicoot: Warped, Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3, Tekken 3, Spider-Man, Ridge Racer Type 4, Pokémon Emerald, CTR and The Last of Us

Biggest Gaming Achievement:

Completing Rayman. For me there was a wave of games that I couldn't complete without my dad, and this was one of them. After he left the household (he's still in my life), completing a game was near impossible, so to complete this filled me with both elation and a little coming of age. Haven't looked back since. Don't do platform trophies, though.

What Change Would I Like to See:

I don't like where the industry is now. Mainly because it's still one of the newer industries, but still exhibits the problems of older ones like music and TV. I would like to see the industry lead in talent and make underrepresented voices represented. From leading characters, to stories, to content, to the workforce. It should be the true beacon and representation of a community here for eachother, one other industries should look to. And one that children from areas like my own feel they can comfortably be a part of.

AKIRA

Co-Founder & Creative Designer

Favourite Games:

BioShock, Left 4 Dead 2, Fallout 3, 4 and New Vegas; Don't Starve and Lollipop Chainsaw

 

Biggest Gaming Achievement:

My biggest achievement would be building my gaming PC. I only started gaming in 2015, with BioShock being the first game I played to completion. My love for gaming started there and I was so immersed that I wanted to learn more about video games as a whole and how to enhance the experience as a player. Fast forward to 2019 and my passion for gaming led me to build my first gaming PC.

What Change I Would Like to See:

I'd like to see more black voices and black protagonists from the start and not an afterthought. The gaming industry is massive and it is made for everyone to enjoy and be a part of. There is so much creative freedom in games that everyone should have the chance to find content that relates to them and their stories.

HASSAN

Content Creator & Co-Host

Favourite Games:

Fallout 3 & New Vegas, Morrowind, Oblivion & Skyrim, The Binding of Isaac, The Legend of Zelda Link’s Awakening, Halo CE, Doom, Wolfenstein

Biggest Gaming Achievement:

Getting the Real Platinum God achievement in The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is the gaming achievement I’m most proud of. A brilliant and challenging game with so many secrets and endings to find, finally getting that 100% was the greatest feeling.

What Change I Would Like to See:

I want the industry to become a place that is inclusive and healthy in how it treats not only the consumers but the humans who work magic to bring us such brilliant and engaging stories. I want underrepresented voices in our spaces to be normalised and recognised, all year round.
