CEO at MidBoss
Cade Peterson runs the queer indie game and media studio called MidBoss in California, and has been in the industry for about 13 years. He started his game career at PlayStation and has worked in and around games ever since, having dabbled in VR tech at Leap Motion, and then helped launch the fledgling indie-focused game platform called Jump. He’s always celebrated and encouraged indie games as a very personal thing close to his heart, having supported IndieCade for over a decade and now helps MidBoss continue to create more high quality LGBTQIA+ inclusive games and other media. Using MidBoss’ platform known for such inclusivity-focused games, he has created programs within the company to help spread a spotlight on other creators doing the same through things like the Season of Pride (link: https://seasonofpride.tv/ ) annual month-long streaming event, which highlights other games and streamers in the rainbow family.
