Level 2 Story
Keegan and Tom began Level 2 Gamers in February 2015. The plan was simple - start a YouTube channel around the world of video games. The two friends shared a love of video games and hoped their differing personalities would make for hilarious, yet balanced, commentary. The channel has gone through many iterations (and even a name change), but has always remained true to Keegan's and Tom's personality.
The channel offers various podcasts, gameplay videos, reviews, reaction videos, convention coverage, top fives, live streams, and more. Keegan and Tom are dedicated to ensuring their content remains relevant and exciting for their viewers. The Level 2 Gamers followers have lovingly become known as 'The Legion" and are an amazing group of people. They even raised money to donate a PSVR to the channel, which is an essential instrument on the Level 2 Gamers channel. (Thanks again, Legion!)
Keegan and Tom enjoy going to industry conventions where, as a small fish in a big pond, they fight hard to bring their viewers the best of the show floor, cosplayers, artists, developers and, yes, even celebrities. Past interviews include Kevin Conroy (The voice of Batman), Loren Lester (The voice of Robin/Nightwing) and Michael Rooker (Walking Dead/Guardians of the Galaxy).
Keegan and Tom are passionate about video games and it shows in their videos. They're sure you'll find something you love here, and they hope you'll join The Legion, too.Thank you for choosing to spend time with Level 2 Gamers. - L2G
Level 2 Mission
Level 2 Gamers enjoy giving back to their community. They’ve had two successful 24-hour charity streams, one for a local pet shelter and one for Able Gamers. They continue to donate to Able Gamers so everyone can game.
Level 2 Gamers also give back to their local YouTube community by sharing developer panels, supporting their local developers, indie developers, and sharing tips and tricks they've learned along their channel journey. In July 2017, they hosted their first panel on the struggles of being a small YouTube channel and how to overcome them.
Keegan and Tom have set their focus on only bringing amazing content to their viewers while shining a light on those who stand in the darkness. While the Level 2 channel may have started as a fun project, it has become about the followers, the games, and the people who make and play them.
