Minecraft Club welcomes Twitch sensation

A special treat awaits teens and tweens at Minecraft Club, 5 pm Feb. 8 at Cold Spring; online star Darkosto live via Twitch stream!

Darkosto, known for his Minecraft Modpack Journey to the Core, will talk about making YouTube videos and coding the game packs he created.

Darkosto has almost 30 videos on his YouTube channel, most being how-to guides for mods and his own Modpacks. Most of his content is via Twitch.

Darkosto, looking forward to his virtual visit, recently took time to answer a few questions:

How long he’s been YouTubing?

Twitch stream began Aug. 8, 2014 and YouTube channel Sep. 3, 2014.

Number of hours a week spent doing this?

48-65 just streaming, with an average of 8 hours a day, 6 days a week. Including off-stream, 60-75 hours.

What’s a healthy time limit for a child/tween to devote to gaming/YouTube?

The former teacher suggests 1/2 hour a day, but socializing can be a good way for an introvert (like him) to make friends in a safe environment.

What does he read?

Malcolm Gladwell and anything that focuses on sociology and psychology, as well as biographies about society’s “outliers.”

Games he plays for enjoyment:

Fallout 4, Factorio, Seven Days to Die, Skyrim, GTA, Space Engineers and The Binding of Isaac.

Register to save a spot on the limited Library laptops or bring your own.

Ages 8-19.

Thanks to a generous gift from the Friends of the Campbell County Public Library, all three branches are home to dramatic play centers.
