History

"Lets Play's" (2006-2014)

ReNDoG created his YouTube channel on the 9th of January, 2006; only a year into the site's history as a whole. On his channel ReNDoG would feature a number of games, ranging from as Metro: Last Light to Project Zomboid. Through this time period up until around 2014 his content was quite varied. Many of his earlier videos are no longer available on his channel for various reasons, however, though ReNDoG would learn a lot from his early work.

Terraria (2010-2012)

In late 2010, ReNDoG pivoted to making videos about the 2D-Sandbox game Terraria, uploading videos of him playing the game as well as guides for the Wiki. ReNDoG would find his first breakout success in December of 2011 with his upload of Let's Play Terraria: Episode 1 (Afro) which would see 150,000 views in its' lifetime. Through his early Terraria videos, ReNDoG grew a fanbase, which he would eventually name "Cyberdogs". More recently, ReN has dabbled in Terraria again with another Let's Play, however the play through was never completed.

Let's Play Minecraft (2012-2017)

ReNDoG would see breakout success with the upload of his first Let's Play Minecraft video on the 28th of April, 2012. Though he had uploaded videos on Minecraft before, his first Let's Play video would generate over 1.4 million views making it his most popular video on his channel even to this day.

Let's Play Minecraft would run on his channel for over five years until the 22nd of July, 2017 where, after five seasons, he uploaded his final video in the world. Throughout this period, ReNDog's community would grow substantially and a fansite was created, Dogcraft.net.

On the 22nd of March, 2015, ReNDoG uploaded his first video as part of a YouTuber community as joined the Kingdomcraft server in an episode aptly titled "A New Era has begun"[2]. This new series and format proved to be highly popular with viewers and its success is commonly cited by ReNDoG himself as a turning point for the channel. Around this time, he also began streaming more regularly on his twitch channel.

In 2016, on February the 26th, ReNDoG was officially revealed as a new server member on the Hermitcraft server as he uploaded his first video as a member of the community, "Gift for the Hermits"[3]. He has regularly uploaded videos from the server ever since and made close friendships with other hermits, particularly Iskall85.
