Having your games, videos, and other Internet-friendly content on the Internet can be such a lucrative business because it brings both wealth and fame. Apart from using our smartphones to see the world of our favorite celebrities, the Internet has helped many people to live their dreams, become successful, and make huge profits. Toby Fox has been in the spotlight for several years now because he has made laudable changes in video game development and music composition.
The Internet personality began profiting from the industry in 2008 under the alias “Radiation” on the EarthBound fan site Starmen.Net. As a forum member of the fansite, Fox was responsible for the site’s PK hack forum until 2011. His professional breakthrough came after he submitted his infamous “EarthBound Halloween Hack” (also called “Press the B Button, Stupid!”) for the Halloween Funfest of Starmen.Net in 2008.
The following year, the video game developer began writing music for Andrew Hussie’s webcomic “Homestuck”. He joined the project as a high school graduate after refusing to join Hussie’s “Music Contribution Team” in April 2009. However, Andrew took note of Fox’s work after he started sharing the piano covers of webcomic music on the MS Paint Adventures forums.
Toby was honored as a music composer for the following albums – Midnight Crew: Drawing Dead (February 4, 2010), Homestuck Vol. 4 (April 13, 2010), Homestuck Vol. 5 (June 13, 2010), Alternia (July 18, 2010), Squiddles! (August 26, 2010), The Baby Is You (October 13, 2010), The Felt (December 2, 2010), Homestuck for the Holidays (December 25, 2010), [S] Collide (April 6, 2016), Hiveswap Act 1 OST (a video game based on Homestuck, September 14, 2017) and several others.
In addition to his musical skills, Toby Fox is a columnist for A Profound Waste of Time magazine and owner of the Homestuck Music Contribution Club.
Fox is a renowned video game developer and music composer who became a celebrity among video gamers with the creation of the universally acclaimed video game ‘Undertale’ in 2015. He was born on October 11, 1991, in Boston, Massachusetts, in the United States. As someone who is relatively new to the spotlight, the public is very curious to learn more about Toby’s family background and private life, although he does not seem to be in a hurry to share information about himself. However, we learned that he graduated from Northeastern University, where he majored in environmental sciences.
Toby Fox’s Net Worth
According to trusted sources, the young celebrity spent $10 on the game Undertale Game, and by 2018, over a million copies had been sold, contributing immensely to the growth of his net worth. Fox’s net worth is estimated at $3 million.
His Undertale Game
Best described as his biggest project, the development of Toby’s Undertale game took over two years. Because of its frightening images, the violence from cartoons, and the language, the game is recommended for people aged 10 and up. It tells the story of a child who searches for a way in an underworld filled with monsters while trying to get back to the surface. The game was released in September 2015 for OS X and Windows and has the following names as main characters: Frisk, Asgore, Flowey, Chara, Sans, Papyrus, and Mettaton.
As mentioned above, the game has sold over a million copies and reminds you of the sounds of 80’s arcade games like Dig Dug and Mario Bros. Toby developed the entire game himself and is said to have invented the designs and ideas for the characters during his student days. After the game was released in 2015, the music developer released a series of unused musical soundtracks from the game, which in his opinion deserve an “8/10” rating. Recently, the music composer was selected as a member of the 2018 Games Forbes 30 under 30 lists for the invention of Undertale.
Although the game increased his fan base and gained him wider public attention, the video game composer still believes that Undertale is “not for everyone” after its release was highly controversial.
What Is He Doing Now?
It’s very hard to say what Toby Fox is doing right now, but there are strong indications that he’s working on his next game. His fans, however, are of the opinion that the author of “A Profound Waste of Time” magazine will probably release a sequel to “Undertale” or a spin-off soon. Whatever it is, Fox’s next game will be highly anticipated.
