Featured Streamers





Music Producer and Content Creator from Grand Rapids, MI. Nerd. Hockey nut. #bipride. He/Him

Wholesome variety streamer sponsored by Founders Brewery. Retro – VR – Party – Chat Integration – Dark Souls – and more! Eternal Optimist. Mental Health Advocate. Friend/Coach/Counselor to those who seek it. Love helping others as much as I can.

FrankthePegasus is an enthusiastic creator who bumbles and giggles her way through any game she touches. She showcases the games she plays through her lens – that of a fat, queer woman – all while making others smile. Frank’s specialty, though, is her ability to connect with her viewers. She encourages an inclusive, safe, and loving environment that allows for a deep bond with her community. She has experience working with brands, developers, and charities that share her passion for bringing good into the world. Simply put: Frank is a majestic Pegasus.

Focused on working with multiple charities that drive toward being difference makers, and that our contributions lead toward helping an individual, family, or both.

Our company motto is to “help the world beat sickness to the next level.” Whether that sickness involves physically, mentally, or culturally, we want to help change the world for those less fortunate than ourselves through gaming.
