Early Life and Online Beginnings
Very little details are available regarding Yub’s life outside of his YouTube career. He has not shared information about his family, education, and childhood, including his real name, only stating that he resides in Dallas, Texas. He has been very interested in video games at a young age which eventually motivated him to try and find a career using his love for gaming through the platform YouTube.
YouTube is one of the most popular websites on the internet as it is ranked the second most popular website in the world according to Alexa Internet. It features numerous types of video content such as original videos, educational videos, television show clips, audio recordings, and many more. Content creators can earn income on the website through the use of the Google AdSense program. Its popularity has reached a point where numerous companies and corporations have also invested in their own channels. The website is owned by Google, as the technology giant bought it for $1.65 billion in 2006.
When Yub started his channel, he didn’t really think of it as a gaming channel, as he was still interested in doing other types of videos. He retained his passion for gaming, but in 2003 he did a lot of skateboard videos as well as other sketch videos just for fun. Eventually, when he realized that the channel could be used for gaming, he started making videos of himself playing several games he was interested in. He remained out of the spotlight for many years, then the game that really elevated him to fame online was “Undertale”, a role-playing video game created by independent developer Toby Fox.
It tells the tale of a child who has fallen into the Underground, a secluded region under the surface of the earth where monsters live. The player must then meet various monsters to try and get back to the surface. Players could not opt to fight with them, but instead choose to pacify, spare or subdue them instead of killing. These decisions ultimately affect what happens in the game, with the story changing depending on the outcome. After its release in 2015, the game received a lot of critical acclaim for its themes, combat system, originality, dialogue, and musical score.
Continuing to ride the fame YuB’s acquired through “Undertale”, he began playing various fan made iterations of the game, and even played fan-made sequels of the game. Eventually, with his interest in the series fading as well as his viewers losing interest, he started to play other games. One of the games he recently played is “Tomadachi Life”, which is a life simulation game created by Nintendo for the 3DS, released in 2013 to good reviews and sales.
He’s also played several virtual reality games including “Skyrim VR”, a virtual reality version of the popular role playing game “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim”, which was released in 2011. The game is set 200 years after the events of “The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion”, and follows the player as he become the pivotal character to defeat the dragon Alduin the World-Eater, who is prophesied to destroy the world. Another game he’s played a lot is “The Binding of Isaac” which is a rogue-like game created by Edmund McMillen.

For his personal life, it is known that YuB is married to Megan Melcher though he has not shared a lot of details about her or their relationship. According to him, they own a pet Goldendoodle, a mixed breed of a golden retriever and a poodle. During his free time, he enjoys going out and spending time with his wife as well as his friends.
