21 Questions With... Mazerak

 

What is your first name? Ethan.

 

Where do you live? Western Washington.

 

What is your occupation? Student.

 

How did you come up with your username? It's pretty boring. About eight years back, I was thinking of making a new username for myself, so I just picked the first thing that sounded cool and got Mazerak.

 



What is your Discord avatar? It's a picture of my cat with red eyes for some reason.

 

Who was the first Spelunky streamer you remember watching? I remember watching both d_tea and SchnitzelDX way back in like 2014, and their high level of play just amazed me.

 

What is your favourite category? Oh, it's gotta be score. I started off by doing dailies, and from that I've grown to love doing score runs.

 

What is your proudest run or contribution? My 2:59.902 Low% run. After about a year and a half of grinding Low%, I finally got the sub-3, and I consider it better than even my score runs. Mazjump is pretty cool too, though c:

 

 

What is your favourite part about the community? Personally, I'd say the Discord server is my favorite. It's a great place to hang out and chat about Lunky and other nonsense.

 

Favourite video game? Besides Spelunky, probably Terraria. I've invested tons of time into it, and I always enjoy coming back for another playthrough.


What is it about Terraria that makes you come back for more? There’s so much variety in how you can play the game, and you can always mix it up a bit. For example, my most recent playthough has the added rules of no flight and summoner weapons only.

 

Favourite movie? I'm a big Marvel fan, so I've gotta say Avengers: Infinity War.

 

Who is your favourite Marvel superhero, and why? I’d say Thor. He’s changed for the better so much in recent movies, and I can’t wait to see where he’s taken next.

 


 

Favourite TV show? Stan Lee's Superhumans. I personally find it fascinating to learn about these people who do things that are seemingly impossible.


Favourite food? Salmon. I'm a big fan of most fish, but salmon's just the best.

 

Favourite hobby? Cross-country/running.

 

Describe your personality in three words. Lazy, obsessive, calm.

 


 

What is your perfect day out? Probably running or racing a 5k, seeing a good movie, and then chilling on the computer for the rest of the day.


What is the last movie you cried at? Coco.

 

If you could have any superpower, what would it be? Teleportation. Maybe then I could finally get a sub-2 any% run.

 

Do you have a message you would like to give to the community? I’m getting that 6-million score run soon.

 

 

Thank you for your time, Mazerak!
