Stevana "Stevie" Case (born September 7, 1976) is a recognized figure from the video game industry. She is noted for being one of the first well-known female gamers. Case has had several roles in the industry, from the first female professional gamer at the Cyberathlete Professional League (CPL) to level designer to vice president of development and sales.

Case gained repute for defeating Quake-designer John Romero in a Quake deathmatch. She defeated him the first time they met, after being introduced by a mutual friend, Don MacAskill. After that, she was employed at Ion Storm, first as a game tester and then as a level designer. Case moved in with Romero in 1999. That relationship ended in early 2003. Until then, Case was the vice president of Monkeystone Games, a game development company she co-founded with Romero.

Case became known for her looks and penchant for games. She was approached by Playboy to appear in a pictorial based on an interview she did in the Los Angeles Times. She did the photo shoot in early 2000. Images of the photo shoot were released on the Internet, but never made it to the pages of Playboy magazine.

Between the years 1998, and 2000 she authored three strategy guide books for Prima Games[1] on the following games; Jazz Jackrabbit 2 (1998), Buck Bumble (1998), and Daikatana (2000), for the latter she used the nickname, Stevie "Killcreek" Case. The nickname "Killcreek" she adopted after the band of the same name from Lawrence, Kansas. Case attended school in Lawrence at the University of Kansas and grew up in Olathe, Kansas.

After leaving Monkeystone Games, Case led product development team for Warner Bros. Online's mobile group. After leaving Warner Bros., she was employed at Tira Wireless in sales/business development. Afterwards she held a position with Spleak Media Network, where she was a director of product management.

In September 2008 she was vice president of business development and sales for Fatfoogoo, a game commerce company.[2]

Case is the former Director of Business Development at Live Gamer[3], and is now employed as Vice President, Sales with PlaySpan.

On March 1, 2010 NewWorld (the former parent company of the CPL) announced that it had signed a two-year agreement with Stevie Case for the production of a new podcast show called Stevie FTW.[4]
