Who Was Nimblz?
Austin Reuschle used the gamertag “Nimblz” while working on a comedy-adventure game called Eg!. This is a social game in Roblox where you control an egg-shaped character with a face and legs. Nimblz also has a YouTube channel that was created in 2009, with 3.45k subscribers.
However, the channel currently has just one video titled “Spinny”. The Roblox community loved Nimblz for his contribution as a developer. After creating Eg! Nimblz formed a group called “sno bro” with three other developers.
And he released the fighting game Sno Day in which players can throw snowballs at each other to collect points. Everything Nimblz did during his time as a developer was centered around helping other people have fun. He wasn’t the type of content creator who did it for money or fame.
