Early Life and Online Beginnings
Very little information is available about Vixella’s life before her fame on YouTube; there are no details regarding her family, childhood, and her education. It is known that growing up, she developed a strong interest in video games, and played such as “The Sims”, and the “Final Fantasy” series. She then noticed that a lot of people who love video games were gaining fame on the platform YouTube, which was now increasing in popularity.
Wanting to share her passion for video games with the public, she also started her own channel. The website was originally an idea of three former PayPal employees but the company was later bought by Google for $1.65 billion. After further developments, it has become one of the most popular websites in the world and the reason for the rise of YouTube celebrities. The website allows users to view, rate, comment on and subscribe to videos or channels that they enjoy. It has become a main source of video content including movie trailers, video blogs, live streams, short films, video clips, and the like.
Rise to Fame
Vixella began by posting a video related to the game “The Sims 3”, the third major title in the Maxis developed life simulation video game series. While it was initially a PC only title, this installment was released through other platforms as well, and became a commercial success, gaining a lot of positive reviews and selling 1.4 million copies during its first week. Since its release in 2009, it has actually become one of the bestselling PC games of all time, selling over 10 million copies.
She started posting her playthroughs of the video game in 2015, after the initial success of her first video. The popularity of the game allowed her to gain a consistent viewer base, and it also increased her fame as a YouTube personality. Some of her most popular videos include the “Girls Go Games” video series, and a sequel to “The Sims 3” was also released entitled “The Sims 4”; she quickly began making content after she got her own copy. Despite the criticism towards this installment of the series, she continued playing and posting videos.
The criticism for “The Sims 4” stems from the fact that the game was released with a considerable lack of content compared to its predecessor, but that didn’t stop it from selling well in 2014 and ‘15. However, many speculate that this would probably be the last “The Sims” video game, as the company Maxis has been dissolved by its parent company, though content continues to be developed for the game. Vixella earned fame for playing various storylines, with her playthroughs often having a theme or is based on something her fans requested.
She is also known for doing Sims challenge videos, and interacts a lot with her audience for her content. She’s also done videos for “Minecraft” and “Final Fantasy X”, which she mentions is her favorite game of the entire “Final Fantasy” franchise. With continued updates to the game, she continues to upload consistent content about “The Sims 4”. Recently, she’s also tried her hand at other popular games such as “Bitlife” and “Gacha Life”. She also gives video updates to her channel, often showcasing new hair styles or giving updates about recent events in her life. Despite all of her video content, she rarely discloses information about her life away from YouTube.
For her personal life, not much is known about Vixella’s romantic relationships. She had tweets in 2017 about having a boyfriend who works in law enforcement, but it is not known if they are still together. With a lack of any more tweets and information about him in recent months, many conclude that she is currently single. She has a lot of friends who are YouTubers as well and they often spend their free time together. She owns a pet Husky named Yuna, named after her favorite character from “Final Fantasy X”.
