Presented by Spawn On Me Airs Jan 30th @ 6pm PST

The Spawnies is a unique awards show, honoring the flavor and spice of the gaming industry. Join us this winter on Twitch to discover the winners!

The Awards 2022 Nominees Announced

Congratulations to our nominees, as picked by all of you! We strive to recognize video games both familiar and new, the people who make them unique, and the diverse community that gathers to celebrate them.

The Show We Are The Culture!

The Spawnies allows game developers and artists to talk about the process of making these pieces of art – both new faces and creators you’ve loved for years. Our show also brings world premieres to surprise + delight new fans. We bring culture that is often pushed to the side to take center stage.

Hear what’s been cooking in Brookago on our weekly podcast until the awards show airs live on Twitch, Monday, Jan. 30th 2023.

Your Host Kahlief Adams

Born and raised in the Bronx, Kahlief Adams is an avid technophile and lover of all things video games. He set his career path in the direction of a life making games until he found out his archnemesis, Math, had other plans in store.

So instead he created an award-winning gaming podcast called Spawn On Me – from which The Spawnies gets its name.

Your Host Riana Manuel-Peña

Riana has seen many sides of the gaming industry first-hand, including localization, production, and marketing on beloved IP's such as Halo, Ori, and Tell Me Why. She has also combined her Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion education with her passion for games on shows like What's Good Games, Kinda Funny, Inside Gaming, and G4. Today, Riana is the Director of Brand & Unified Marketing at Zebra Partners.
