Steph joined Cure Cancer’s Game On Cancer® team in January 2023. An avid gamer and streamer herself, she is excited to work with the rest of the team towards Cure Cancer’s goal of making sure this is the last generation to die from cancer.
What’s the first game you remember playing?
I can’t remember the first game I ever played, but I remember playing Wacky Wheels which is this super cute car racing game where you race cars, and all the drivers are animals OR maybe my first game was Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness.
What is your favourite game currently?
I have been playing many different games lately and anything published by Devolver Digital I will usually take the time to look at. They published some amazing releases in 2022 such as Inscryption and Cult of The Lamb. I have also become obsessed with Path of Exile (POE) and spent a lot of hours in the most recent League. In 2023, I am going to try and play a variety of games. I will also be playing Diablo IV and more POE.
What got you into streaming?
When I started streaming, I was aiming for two things; One, be involved in the video game industry of Australia in some way and two, find more friends who were gamers. I feel I succeeded in both of those things. I have made some amazing friends on my journey in gaming and getting to work with Game On Cancer® means I am involved in the video game industry and am using my skills for an amazing cause.
What kind of games do you like to stream?
I used to be an Overwatch only Streamer, but over time I have evolved into a variety streamer. My streams have become a lot more relaxed, chilled and a place where I just play whatever games I want to try out and share with others. So really don’t have any expectations if you come check out my streams, who knows what game will be played.
Why is gaming important to you?
Gaming lets you do things you can’t do in the real world… Like owning a house in the Sims. Ok, all jokes aside gaming does have a level of escapism like books and movies do. You can have experiences in super creative worlds that would not be possible in the real world. Gaming is also a way for me to connect with others. I can easily catch up and hang out with mates while waiting in queues for games or while we defeat a boss or do some in game content together. Gaming has become more than sitting in your room by yourself and playing a game. Gaming is social and all about community now. Gaming is also more than sitting at your desk, you can exercise with certain games and workout using VR headsets. You can also take games out on the road with you thanks to consoles like the Switch and Mobile gaming growing every day.
What is your role at Cure Cancer (Game On Cancer) and what drew you to this job?
I am the Gaming & Streaming Manager at Cure Cancer (Game On Cancer). I was drawn to this role because, not only do I have a love for gaming and streaming but I get to help with something that is truly a benefit to society. While I do not have the skills nor the knowledge to specifically do the research required to find a cure for cancer, I love that I can work on helping raise funds and supporting such an amazing cause.
