Slade started in the Video Game Industry in 1993 as technical support manager at Accolade. He worked his way up to producer and was producer/designer on Test Drive 4, Test Drive 5 and Test Drive 6. Slade started the TransWorld brand at Infogrames/Atari after Accolade was bought by Infogrames/Atari. He was with them for eight years.

After Infogrames moved to Santa Monica, Slade took on the roll of executive producer for a small UK developer, Darkblack where he worked on a few titles before Darkblack commited suicide by boarding the good ship Acclaim. Slade then joined Empire Interactive where he oversaw the US launches of Big Mutha Truckers, Ghost Master and Starsky & Hutch. After Empire, Slade joined Tapwave as a producer where he helped launch Madden NFL 2005 and MTX Mototrax. He also worked as release engineer for all titles and helped in the writing of game manuals.

After a short stint at a Limelife, Slade became senior producer at TikGames, LLC. At TikGames Slade designed and produced a few mobile titles, most notably Disney's Pooh's Hunny Trouble and four casual PC titles:* Merriam-Webster Spell-Jam * Flower Stand Tycoon * Cinema Tycoon 2 * County Fair

On these titles Slade was the lead designer, producer and writer. Slade also designed a game based on the TV show Amazing Race that never saw fruition due to contract disputes.
