Steve Hamaker from Plox sat down with FuturemanGaming for a short interview. For those who aren’t familiar with Futureman, he is a super entertaining streamer and runs these awesome DJs in Space broadcasts once a month on Twitch. To learn more about FMG, click the link below.
Steve: Futureman, my favorite thing about your Twitch channel is the style from top to bottom. You have an unmistakable vibe that defines everything you do. How did you come up with the Futureman persona?
FM: FuturemanGaming was a culmination of a lot of things. First and foremost I wanted to create an environment where people could relax, have fun, and enjoy each other’s company. Life can be really tough. Video games and the company of others is a great way to help deal. I really wanted to make people laugh and forget about their worries when watching my channel. Even if for a moment.
Also, I looked at Twitch and saw a LOT of saturation. There are so many people streaming and the market is flooded, so I tried to think of ways to differentiate myself and bring something totally fresh to the Twitch scene. I wanted to create something that made people think, “Whoa…wait…whoa…this…is cool.” and after months of researching the technology behind streaming, brainstorming ideas (good and bad), learning some basic Photoshop, and ultimately coming up with the Futureman theme, I launched headfirst into streaming!
