Meet MoltenLlama

by Jayden Harding on September 18, 2020

Who are you? IRL and gamer Tag

Hey!  I'm MoltenLlama, most people just call me llama.  Aussie streamer from Melbourne.  Devourer of lasagne!

What platforms do you create content on?

I've recently been evicted by Mixer, so still trying to find a new home.  I'm streaming on Twitch for the moment, but have my eye on a new streaming platform called Glimesh.  From what I've seen it has the close community feel to it that I've been missing from Mixer, so I'm really excited to see where it leads.

What is your all-time favourite game?

I honestly couldn't pick just one.  I'm a big fan of the Assassin's Creed series, Black Flag being my favourite of the lot.

If you could be one video game character who would it be and why?

Aiden Pearce from Watch Dogs.  Not only would I be able to hack an ATM and go on a shopping spree, but I'd look pretty sweet in that leather jacket as well.

Where would you like to be in 1 year?

I'd like to be able to move my day job to part time hours and concetrate on my content.  I'd really like to start making some content on YouTube, mix things up a bit.

What is 1 piece of advice for someone starting out?

Before you spend money on ALL the RGB things or expensive chairs, make sure your microphone and audio are clear.  There's nothing more distracting than watching a stream with scratchy audio or when the streamer is too quiet or it sounds like they're eating their mic.  At the end of your streams, go back and watch the VOD, and make sure it's all OK. 

What is your favourite content creation moment?
Just as I was starting out with streaming, I joined a bunch of other Aussie creators for a charity event.  I got to collab with so many other amazing people and we ended up raising over $11,000 for the mental health charity, Beyond Blue.  It's an amazing feeling to know that just a few hours of our time was able to make such an impact.  Most of us are still in contact today, and usually catch up each year at PAX.

Who is your favourite streamer or YT'er? And why?

I've been watching a lot of WillyB on YouTube recently while I've been in lockdown.  He's into the same games I'm into, like Breakpoint and the Watch Dogs series.  He’s more of a chill and kill than screech and preach kinda guy, that's definitely more my vibe.

What is your favourite gaming snack?

When I'm not eating lasagne (no really, I lovvvve lasagne)... It would have to be Double Coat Tim Tam biscuits.  Sponsor goal!

What's your favourite thing to do outside gaming?

I work some pretty crazy hours so I don't get a lot of free time (when I'm not sleeping).  But I am known to go to an Ice Hockey game or two.  Go Mustangs!

Who outside of gaming do you look up to as a role model or idol?

Sour Apple for sure, It's got a bite to it.  Fill the shaker with ice and water and you're set!  I'd love to see a pineapple or tropical flavour.

Where can people find you?
