Eric Wilderman (born: October 16, 1986 (1986-10-16) [age 33]), better known online as EricVanWilderman, is a Canadian gamer. In the early days of his channel, Eric focused primarily on RPG horror games and recorded let's plays for games such as Corpse Party: Blood Covered, Ib, and Mogeko Castle. Eric's channel began to reach a new audience when he branched out into Mario Maker and Geometry Dash.

RPG Horror

When Eric started his channel he was working as an English teacher, later moving to a house in South Korea to teach there. During this time Eric began exploring RPG maker games after a foray in other games such as Catherine, Gal Gun, and the Fatal Frame series. Some of the first games that Eric played during this time were Sleepless Night 2, The House 2, The Witch's House, and Mad Father. However, it wasn't until the release of his let's play of Corpse Party: Blood Covered for PSP that Eric's channel gained a larger albeit niche audience. Eric would go on to make lets plays for its sequels Corpse Party: Book of Shadows and Corpse Party: Blood Drive. This period slowly came to a close when Eric started his series on Five Nights at Freddy's and Geometry Dash, which became a surprise hit. He later picked up Mario Maker and it attracted many people, to the point where his videos were split nearly 50/50 until he separated his channels to appease the YouTube algorithm.

Geometry Dash

Geometry Dash is Eric's most played game, which is also the game he is famous for. The first episode was on December 28, 2014. He had 119,500 subscribers at the time. He has beaten several extreme demons, namely Cataclysm, Ice Carbon Diablo X, Quest for Perfection, and Temple of Destiny (which is now an insane demon, but was an extreme when he completed it). He has also verified several levels: Subterranean Animism, Astral Nebula, and Cosmic Festival, and a 240 hz bugfix of Hi by KrmaL. He now has more than 500k subscribers and uploads content on his recently created Mario Maker channel as well (which has more than 15k subscribers). Eric's three most popular series for Geometry Dash are the Recent Levels series, Impossible or Not series, and the Five Demons in One Video series.
