History

EricVanWilderman has had a long history in Geometry Dash. Starting in early 1.9 on December 24, 2014, he started to play Geometry Dash, his first video being about completing Stereo Madness, Back on Track, and Polargeist.[2] After this he started to complete all the regular title screen levels, ending on Theory of Everything 2 on February 5, 2015.[3] After completing v2's of the title levels by Neptune, he started to play easier demons such as Problematic. As his following grew, he attempted more difficult demons such as Toxin Lab 2 and The Robotic Rush, and his popularity as a Geometry Dash player rose as well. On April 11, 2017, he completed Old Cataclysm by Gboy, becoming the first non-GD oriented YouTuber to have beaten an extreme demon. Only a month later he then completed New Cataclysm by Ggb0y, and was briefly on the Top 50 Demons List.[4] In September of 2017, he completed Ice Carbon Diablo X. Players Riot, AeonAir, and TrusTa started to take notice of his rapid rise and collaborated with him in videos. In 2018, he started a series called The Twelve Demons of Christmas and played 12 demons every day. He beat his 4th extreme Demon, Quest for Perfection, on December 26, 2018. In the Twelve Demons of Christmas for 2019, he beat his 5th extreme demon (which was rated that at that time), Temple of Destiny by Drakeghast.

On September 10, 2020, he beat Bloodbath on a copyable version because he crashed to a 240Hz bug on the original. It is his current hardest demon. He also plays other levels in Geometry Dash and still enjoys it as he is evolving into an extremely great player. [5]

Equipment

EricVanWilderman used a PS4 Controller up to June 3, 2018,[6] and beat his first three extreme demons using the controller. He switched to mouse on June 3, 2018. He broke his mouse (g502) on August 28, 2020 while completing Blast Processing Full by LuneraGD,[7] and posted on YouTube on September 1, 2020 that he bought a Basilisk V2, following AeonAir's advice on Twitter.

Status

EricVanWilderman is currently active and shows no current signs of retiring anytime soon.

Icons

He uses the 800-star cube as his cube, the 75-secret coin ship, the 1-user coin wave and the rest of his icons are custom from the community shop.

Colors

Suprisingly, EricVanWilderman didn't always use the Red and White that we see today. He used Green and Blue from Stereo Madness to Base After Base. He briefly used red and green on Can't Let go, but quickly switched to red and Yellow soon after. He used Red and Yellow from Jumper to Xstep and then switched colors once more. It seemed like he couldn't make up his mind about which colors to use. He used blue and white for Clutterfunk and used purple and pink for TOE and Electroman Adventures. He used blue and gray for Hexagon Force and Blast Processing and then used Gray and White for Electrodynamix. For Clubstep, he used Orange and Blue and for TOE 2 and Chicken Techno he used Green and Red again. From Stereo Madness V2 all the way to Cycles V2 he used black and white but switched once more. For Xstep V2 he used red and blue and then used green and yellow for Clutterfunk V2. He finally settled on Black and Green and used it from TOE V2 all the way to Laser Room. He finally chose the famous Red and White on June 22, 2015, when he attempted Problematic. On March 13, 2019, he switched to Blue and White, when he got 100 Ice Shards, but he now has returned back to his Red and White color-scheme and still uses it today.
