Early Life and Gaming
Very little is known about Kindly Keyin’s childhood and his family, not even details about his education. What is known is that he started his interest in video games when eight years old, when he began playing the video game “Mega Man X”, which otherwise known as “Rockman X” in Japan, is a part of the “Mega Man” series, a video game platformer series created by Capcom and focused on the titular character. The video game is a continuation of “Mega Man”, and introduced new capabilities for the players including climbing walls.
The video games would eventually become popular, as is one of the most celebrated characters of Capcom. This began his lifelong interest in gaming, though he focused on other things in his life such as his school, and later on a job. Eventually, he decided to focus back on his passion in gaming, and discovered that the website YouTube was a great platform on which to build a career.
YouTube is a video sharing website owned by Google, that allows users to create video content, to upload, view, rate, report, comment on and subscribe to other users. YouTube often features user created content, and its popularity has also led to various corporations investing in the website. Contents on YouTube include video clips, music videos, films, trailers, live streams, video blogging, and much more. During the time that Kindly Keyin became interested in the website, he wanted to stand out from the competition as there were already many established gaming YouTubers present.
He began his channel in 2016 by uploading his most memorable game – “Mega Man X” – and soon forayed into other content as well. He focused his channel on becoming family friendly, with his videos oriented towards kids and the games they would likely play, especially on mobile games which were easily accessible. He later also started promoting independent games, as many of the mainstream games already had other popular YouTubers covering them. This in turn helped increase his popularity significantly, and soon his subscribership would grow to over 1.3 million. He uploads on a regular basis, and gains hundreds of thousands of views for his videos.
Most Popular Content
In recent months his videos on certain video games have gained the most views, leading him to focus on those games at the moment. A few of his most popular videos are for the game “Hello Neighbor”, which is a survival horror stealth game; the aim of the player is to uncover a secret by access the basement of a neighbor’s house. The unusual thing about this game is that its artificial intelligence changes the neighbor’s behavior based on your past actions, which means that the neighbor can set traps, or follow paths that the player previously used. The game is separated into several parts and its popularity has led to the developers releasing additional content for the game. Despite gaining mixed reviews, it remains a popular choice for a lot of gamers who find the game entertaining.
Another game that Kindly Keyin has been known for is the massively multi-player game called “Roblox”, which allows users to design their games, and play games created by other users. The video game uses Lego-like blocks, and its popularity has led to around 70 million active monthly users. The freedom for users to create their own content and play others allows for a near infinite number of possibilities, which in turn has led to the game’s increased popularity.
Personal Life and Social Media
For his personal life, it is known that Kindly Keyin is married to Jessie, who has been featured in several of his videos as a guest. The two announced through a video in late 2018 that they were going to have a baby, who was born a few months later. A lot of his followers have been very supportive of the couple, and of the channel. While he has shared a bit about his personal life, a lot of it remains hidden from the public.
It is known that he resides in California, and several of his fans have met him in public. Aside from his YouTube account, he has expanded to other social media websites to promote his content. He has an account on Twitter which he used to promote his videos and recent appearances. He also has an Instagram account which features a lot of personal photos, including with his family.
