Daniel W. S. (born: June 15, 1997 (1997-06-15) [age 24])[1], better known online as Dani (also known as DaniDev and DaniMilkman, formerly dwsGames), is a Norwegian YouTuber born in Bergen, Norway. On Daniel's main YouTube channel, he posts videos mainly consisting of him developing games in Unity using the C# programming language.

Early Programming Experience

When Daniel was 15, he was introduced to the Java programming language for the first time, and after learning it for a while, he fell in love with it. He would make simple games with core Java using the Intellij IDEA for Java by JetBrains. After a while, Daniel wanted to make better games and was introduced to several Game Engines, but chose Unity as it uses C#, which was similar to Java.

Development Series

Daniel has a running series where his fans challenge him to make games, by saying "Or you can't do that?". This has led to some interesting projects by Daniel, he has made a game called Karlson which is now on Steam awaiting release so WISHLIST NOW BONERS!. Not long after making the initial game he then made a follow-up video showing the process of him making the Multiplayer aspect of his game Karlson. Most recently, he made a VR game called "Ogga Bogga" when he was challenged like this in "He said I Couldn't Make a VR Game... So I Bought a VR Headset and Made One!".

Some of Dani's favorite things

Daniel's favorite things consist of Milk and unity Particle Systems. He used to hate OJ Gang but he is now friends with them.

Some of Daniel's favorite quotes are "Thicc", "Unity Particle System", and "Milk". He also likes calling his fans boners (coming from the Norwegian word for subscribe "abonner"/the fact that Milk gives you strong bones).

Video Games & Coding

Daniel has made many games on his channel, the most notable one currently is called Karlson and is awaiting to be released on Steam. But he has made other original games like Fair n' Square[2] and Off The Balls[3]. He also created a game named "Tree Team" as his part in the TeamTrees project, which has a goal of raising a total of 20 million dollars by the end of 2019, and for every dollar raised, Arbor Day Foundation will plant a tree. Dani inserted ads in his game and all revenue was donated to TeamTrees.

The game that started his YouTube-career was called Off The Sticks, of which he uploaded 21 dev-log videos of, spanning from October 2018 to July 2019. He took a break from the game due to getting burnt out[4], and has made no more videos of it since December 2019, leading to the game being presumed cancelled.

He has also developed games under a time limit, he would make that game within a certain deadline. He made a video of making a mobile game in a day[5]. He later made a game in just two days[6]. He made another challenge of making himself a website which he used to advertise the games he made and so he can post his mobile game to the App Store[7]. He made a game in 48 hours.[8] Another game in 12 hours[9], and then made a game in one hour[10]. He then made a 3D game under the challenge of his fans. Due to his devotion to milk, he named the headset he made Oculus Milk, also partially because he made the headset out of milk boxes. He also made an item called the "DaniBox 3000" for his making a game with a banana video.

On June 5, 2021, Dani got his first game officially released on Steam, and it is titled Muck.
