Caña also cofounded a studio called Cat Quartet Games, responsible for Gladius which raised $100,000 on Kickstarter and has won multiple awards.

She was also named to the 2021 Game Awards Future Class: a group of individuals who represent the "bright, bold, and inclusive future of video games."

Caña says she's "on a mission to bring more diverse, accessible, and inspiring games to the world," and MCC could not be more proud of what she has accomplished to date.
