Can you believe Infirmary Gaming Community (IGC) is already over a year old?? What started off as a random collection of people watching EarthBound has grown into something much larger. So many great people have joined our community and helped it grow into what it is today. These members not only support one another, help us grow, but do what they can to help new streamers/content creators in our group feel welcome. The founders of IGC want to highlight some of these amazing people, and give you a little look inside their head as a show of appreciation for all their hard work and dedication to our community.
For our this Featured Streamer, we talk to Drake2304, who joined our family six months ago but has been streaming for over a year. We hope you enjoy learning more about him in the Q&A below!
Who is Drake2304, tell everyone a bit about yourself, and what do you do?
I’m a nerd from Romania, passionate about video games both on PC and mobile who also happens to stream on Twitch. In real life I sell mobile games on a website and administer a payment method in Google Play
What type of games do you stream?
I stream all kinds of games but I like RPG’s the most. Lately I’ve gotten into Multiplayer games as well. It’s quite fun.
When did you start streaming and why?
According to Twitch my first stream was on June 15, 2015. I streamed Euro Truck Simulator 2 just to see how it works. That’s not when I started streaming regularly. To be honest I don’t know exactly when that happened. One day I said: “What if I stream some Mass Effect?” and I stuck to streaming almost every day since. I never recorded the date because I didn’t take me streaming seriously. I do believe it was sometime in October of the same year.
Any advice you’d give to anyone who wishes to start streaming?
Talk a lot even if you’re talking to yourself at the beginning. I only did that after watching a video sometime after I started streaming, after watching a tutorial video on YouTube.When people come in your chat be welcoming, be interactive, talk to them. Play whatever you like.
When not streaming what do you play?
Well I don’t have a lot of time to play outside the stream anymore, but when I do it greatly depends on the mood. I like to play Euro Truck Simulator 2 or Elite Dangerous to relax, FIFA 17 if I feel like playing a sports game, Sins of a Solar Empire of Galactic Civilizations III as strategy games. Lately I’ve been feeling like playing Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag again after watching the Black Sails TV Show.
Outside of streaming, are there any other hobbies / Interests you enjoy?
I like walking a lot, running, travelling, reading books, board games, watching movies, tv series.
Any embarrassing stories/secrets about yourself you’d be willing to share?
During my first week of streaming I came really tired from work and went to stream. I fell asleep on stream for about 5 minutes. Luckily I had no viewers back then so nobody saw it 😛
Anything else you’d like to share with us?
I would like to thank everyone for their amazing support. Meeting and interacting with them on stream and Discord is the thing that keeps me going on Twitch. I really love the community.
