Hello everyone, and welcome to Entry Level Games. If you’re a first-time reader here, then welcome. We’re a geek culture site that covers gaming news, VTubers and more.
Another thing we like to do is Q&As with folks all across the gaming industry, from CEOs to Voice Actors. We’ve also done Q&As with VTubers before. In this Q&A, we’ll be talking to a Vtuber named Sprixer, who recently celebrated their re-debut.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Virtual YouTubers, they’re essentially YouTubers or Streamers that take on the form of a digital character. They’ve become very popular over the past few years, so much so that they’ve gained an audience worldwide.
Editors Note: Sprixer has joined the Veisou VTuber Group!
In this Q&A, we’ll be talking to Sprixer, who may be referred to as an Indie VTuber, since they don’t work for a big organisation. Their follower count, however, is by no means indie, as Sprixer has a following that rivals that of the biggest Vtubers.
Today, we’ll be going through some answers to questions given to Sprixer, so we hope you all enjoy it.
Questions and Answers
Question: When did you get into Vtubing?
“I started Vtubing in 2020 I was originally a face cam streamer but another content creator introduced me to VR and VRC. Back when I first started using it the game was mostly used as a “oh look at my back while I’m playing games” kind of category. I looked at it and saw an opportunity to combine my love of just chatting and not having to do my makeup.
It wasn’t really a thing when I started doing it and I actually got partnered off of it when the concept of it blew up. (Yes I’m one of the founding mothers of thotchat VRC) from there I learned about 2D models and got my first second hand off of a girl rebranding, never looked back after that.”
Question: You’ve recently re-debuted. What changes have you made since your first debut?
“That’s a difficult question because my stream is always changing even without debuting. I’m always changing screens, interactive concepts, emotes and my content. The joke In my channel is you get content whiplash from how much I try to do.
That being said if I was to pin something down I’d say it’s the quality of my hardware and software I invest in, having slowly been saving from the little success I’ve had I’ve been able to invest into better software, rigging, designs and even hardware this time around.”
Question: What inspired your style and aesthetic?
“It was a 3 year journey of a lot of VR Roleplay characters fused with my favorite anime’s. I love characters like Harley Quinn and Jinx but wanted to fuse the seductive confidence of Jessica rabbit and the fierce energy of Esdeath. With just a dash of shitpost and Tsundere.”
Question: What is your favourite game?
“At the moment I truly still love Red Dead Online, but I haven’t been able to stream or play it in months because the public servers are so bad and a nightmare to streamers. I’m really big into survival and crafting and am excitedly awaiting nightingale, but for now I’m filling the void with random steam sales.”
Question: Are there any activities or games you’d like to do but haven’t done yet on stream?
“I’ve always wanted to do a talk show style stream with other streamers I haven’t met. I see a lot of them get together and get to know each other and I’m envious of that opportunity to make friends. I have a hard time reaching out to people for fear of being rejected or god forbid someone assume it’s for clout so I just stay in my hole and dream.”
Question: What other VTubers would you like to collaborate with?
“I really enjoyed the limited time I had with Fillian so I’d love to share space with her again. Other than that I’d say it would be Takahata and some of the weary 404 gang. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Zoran a few times and when ever I watch them all spend time together it just looks like a group of goofy friends.”
Question: What is one fun fact about yourself that you’ve not yet shared with your audience?
“My voice acting career has made me way more popular and well known in avenues than I let on. I like to keep my vtubing and VA stuff as separate as I can in some respects.”
Question: What advice would you give to those wanting to join Vtuber life?
“Do it for fun, not for money. There is nothing wrong with wanting to succeed at something you do and for sure put your heart into it. But focusing on making it a career is going to lead to some mental burn out, especially with how saturated the market is. I don’t even rely on it full time, this is still my hobby outside of my fulltime recording job.”
