Every person and, quite literally, their dog now stream on Twitch TV which makes it increasingly harder to spot genuine talent when browsing streams. We’ve found 5 Aussie streamers you should check out.
Some stream for fame, others for fortune, some even both but sometimes you stumble across that rare streamer who is really out there just to make friends.
I have befriended many streamers over the years and some of them sky rocketed to fame, and I am very happy for them. But when they become internet superstars the viewing experience becomes less personal for me. I often browse Twitch TV looking for people playing games that I might be interested in picking up or sometimes I’m just looking for a friend to talk about a game I love with. When streamers become too famous that kind of intimacy just fades and you just become another Kappa in the crowd.
This is why I’m finding myself check out more smaller streamers and supporting them. You’d be surprised in the effort that a lot of them put in to making their channels and streams top-notch. A lot of these streamers are also balancing full-time jobs on top of sharing their exciting gaming moments with us, so if I can afford, I never hesitate to tip them. If I get hours on hours of entertainment and company from watching a streamer then why not tip them? Movie tickets cost more and you get less… and this is just like buying a mate a beer.
After browsing Twitch and checking out some online communities I’ve found 5 small time Aussie streamers that deserve some attention
Anna is one of the most engaging streamers I’ve come across on the platform; she never misses a beat. She somehow manages to handle interesting conversations while kicking butt and taking names in videogames.
She has earned herself some descent sponsorship opportunities and is now partnered with GGWP and AK Racing Australia. Which is impressive for a streamer who barely turns on their facecam.
Soxy is a true blue Aussie bloke, or what I’d like to call the bogan Dr. Disrespect. This guy is full-on and has a pretty busy streaming schedule. He even went to PAX Australia and streamed every second he could on Periscope. Also, the amount of effort that Soxy has put into his persona is worthy of applause.
This man is so chill that he will hop into a game with random viewers. So make sure you go check out this mullet head Aussie bogan and tip him enough so he can buy himself a bourbon and coke!
One name comes to mind when thinking of dodgy memes and that’s Mz. SweetDevil. Why’s that? She will laugh like a maniac to the worst dad jokes… and it is incredibly endearing.
Whether she is pwning (oh my god, pwning is not detected as spelling error) in Overwatch or just chilling and doing some creative work, Mz. SweetDevil is keen for a laugh. Go check her channel out right now.
Monkey is a graphic designer, developer, Twitch streamer and a fish n’ chips cook. You can’t get any more Aussie than that. Fish n’ chips? Come on!
He may have a crappy internet and live in a trailer but this Aussie is no bogan. He’s handsome and charming and his creativity shows in spades with every stream. Whether he’s doing some kind of challenge or messing around with Photoshop it’s always fun to engage with him.
If you like beards then you will love this guy. Just to add to one of his many accolades, Clyro has been voted ‘best of of Twitch’ by many of loyal viewers.
Clyro is a straight-shooter, he will call things as he sees them; this means you are bound to have some great conversations with him. He’s also a professional graphic designer and it shows in his channel and overlay design. If you’re up for a good convo and some great gameplay you owe yourself a visit to his channel.
