Rise to Stardom
KPopp is one of the many rising talents on the social media circle today and her journey is indeed an extraordinary one. It all commenced after she opened her YouTube account on February 18, 2006. Starting it off with a sports’ video, KPopp, who was a teen then, showed off her skateboarding trick called ‘Nose Stall’. Interestingly, KPopp did not catch on the social media fever for quite long after her initial debut. In fact, as unbelievable as it may seem, there was a four year gap between her first and second upload. However, her second upload, a gaming video that came in 2010, made her incredibly famous on YouTube. KPopp then switched to gaming commentary for ‘Call of Duty’, ‘MW2’, ‘Let's Plays on Heavy Rain’, ‘Red Dead Redemption’ and hilarious glitch videos. Subsequently, she began uploading Let's Plays and playthroughs on action-themed, mystery-themed and shooter-themed videos, including ‘Justice in Pike's Basin’ live commentaries, flash games and other types of games such as ‘Façade’.
A declared Potterhead (Harry Potter official fan name) and Tribute (The Hunger Games official fan name), it was while reading the second book of the Hunger Games trilogy that KPopP was struck with the idea of The Sims 3 Hunger Games. Knowing it would be fun, she worked hard to create a series that was loosely based on the films and the books. Finally, she succeeded in making a Sims 3 interpretation. The Sims Hunger Games developed is based more on luck and chance for the most part. The participants are allowed to play free-will and very rarely controlled.
