Fortnite: Save The World streamer RoundedTikTak is relatively new to the Twitch realm, yet he’s quickly gained the attention of viewers and game developers alike. All it takes is one session to see why. The 30-something-year-old gamer brings to the table an entertaining personality and addictive streaming experience that will remind you of a night out with your favorite crew.
But it isn’t always just fun and games on TikTak’s stream. Sometimes he opts to raise money for a good cause. This November he’s using his platform to collaborate with Dreamscape Foundation on a life-changing charity stream to raise money for two brothers with LHON.
Streaming with a Charitable “Twitch”
This isn’t the first charity stream for TikTak. The last one he did alongside another streamer was for an organization founded by Linkin Park called Music for Relief Foundation. The program dedicates its time, funds, and efforts to helping communities and individuals affected by natural disasters, including recovery and rebuilding efforts.
The 12-hour event originally set the bar at $500 in donations. Instead, it blew past its goal to hit $1,400.
“For a smaller time streamer, it’s not bad at all,” TikTak said.
His next charity stream takes place at 9 am EST on November 18. This one is for the Jongsma Twins, a pair of brothers who are working hard to raise enough money for eSight Eyewear in order to help them redeem some of their vision.
When asked why he chose to help Dreamscape Foundation in this effort, TikTak said, “I like that their goals are individual… You know you’re helping out these two young men. That’s much more acute than some broad, obtuse goal where you don’t know where the money’s going. [Dreamscape’s staff] seem like very nice, caring people and that’s what we’re all about. If I can help out, I want to.”
A Look at TikTak’s Unique Flavor
If you aren’t deep in the trenches of Fortnite streaming, you may not be familiar with TikTak. After all, his debut on Twitch was only in July of 2017. However, if you’re a fan of live gaming and a good time, it’s the perfect place to chill.
His alias comes from an old Xbox gamer tag, which he added “Rounded” to when TikTak was already taken. It’s simple, it’s efficient, and (like his stream) it packs a lot of flavor.
TikTak is a niche streamer who plays Fortnite every morning. In fact, he’s one of the original streamers and content creators for Fortnite Save the World.
As a host, he prides himself on creating an entertaining environment where people can laugh and have a good time without having to deal with trolls, hate speech, unsolicited promos, and just plain bad behavior.
Creating a Digital Hangout for All
While TikTak’s stream is about 30% women and 70% men, it’s 100% equal in acceptance. No matter who you are, it’s a safe environment to hang out, chat, and catch some high-quality Fortnite action.
“I look at myself as a TV show,” TikTak explains. “I try to have everybody come in, relax, and let me do my job of giving you a few laughs in the morning. It’s like a night out at the bar with your friends.”
Those who hang out can chat directly with TikTak, who makes it a point to try to interact with everyone during his stream. Attendees can participate in giveaways, TikTak Tag-a-Longs, request songs, and play in-chat games.
Many wonder how he managed to create a successful streaming channel so quickly. It’s quite a feat. Yet when asked what he would say to anyone who wants to follow in his footsteps, his words are purely encouraging.
“If you have something you are really passionate about, make sure you give it a shot,” he said. “I didn’t know anything about streaming. I learned all of it from scratch on my own through YouTube. So if you’re thinking about getting into it, you can absolutely do it. It just takes time, consistency, patience, and a little bit of stubbornness to make things work sometimes.”
An Epic Adventure Lies Ahead
Just before the upcoming charity stream, TikTak’s going on a grand adventure to the headquarters of Fortnite’s creator, Epic Games.
“I have this chance to go and meet a bunch of people from Epic Games’ headquarters, that literally owns the largest game in the entire world right now…and I’m one out of 5 people [to receive the invitation]. That’s amazing. That is kind of like a dream come true.”
What this journey entails, he can’t say. However, he will be sharing whatever details he can during the charity stream on November 18th.
