Last week we introduced Jerponymus to you. This week we bring you the other part of the 2Scallions: Howdiedew
Name, Nationality, and Age? (if you can tell)
My name is Ilja Ommering, I am a Dutch young man from 23 years old!
My producer name is Slapjack! (I got the derpy pic on soundcloud)
Is making music your main activity? Tell us about it.
Music is my main activity. Trying to learn something new each day!
What made you want to start doing music for Realm?
I have always enjoyed playing Realm, and I have always enjoyed listening to game music!
I really used to like the old OST tune from the Kabam time as you might have heard in the Shatters OST.
But hearing it in-game now really doesn’t make me want to have my music on, tho. I would just want the whole game to be full of nice and cool tunes to remember even after you left the dungeon! instead of the old DADADADA DADADADA DADA DADADADADADA.
Any hidden talents or hobbies?
I can juggle 😀
(Don’t ask me to juggle)
How and when did you start playing RotMG?
I think I was maybe about 12 when I found out about the game.
Then late on my 13th my buddy QuyntLP introduced me to it again, that’s when I made my IGN (yes it’s a mix of Honeydew and pewdiepie… I WAS 13!!)
Then I didn’t get really into it for a little while until I got older.
When I was 17/18 I got back into it ALOT! Started making a pet and got myself my first chest and char slot. My other friend Allnamtake got into it as well around that time and since then it’s been in my top favorite games.
Favorite Class, Dungeon, and Item?
My favorite class always was Priest, but it became a bit boring for me so I made a samurai. It was fun so I called it my fav. And then I made a bard and called it my fav, and so on honestly xD
For my fav dungeon, I would say Secluded Thicket or Cnidarian Reef. Easy, digestible, while still giving you a bit of a challenge!
What other games do you play?
I play a lot of Minecraft! I recently started playing Runescape.
And I am a big fan of Super Mario, Zelda,… Just Nintendo title’s in general!
Not much of a shooter type but I do enjoy Battlefield or Team Fortress from time to time (when I’m good at it that is). I would also like to recommend a game: Outer Wilds! (not outer worlds) a space exploring game with lots of mysteries and puzzles!
What makes RotMG unique?
Top-down view with the cam rotation and the way the game is played. I don’t know many games in this style, and usually, when I do, I call the other game a realm-like. Also, not many other games have permadeath.
What are the things you love the most in the game?
What would you change?
The Guild hall can have a big overhaul I think!
How do you see the game in 10 years?
I expect it to have at least 100 dungeons! (if not more) 2000 white bag drops and AT LEAST 20,000 st sets. Alright I’m talking bs now, haha
