And the record? He has the most followers on Steam
for his creations through the Steam Workshop
and now has officially planted himself as not just an evergreen gaming and content creator, but for also helping make the freshly-minted record an addition to the group's ever-growing list of achievable and recognised world records.
We've had a bit of history here with Luke, first reporting on his endeavours way back in 2014
. But we won't ramble here, that's his thunder to share, however, we did recently interview him on the achievement, which you can read by clicking through here
. Otherwise, here's the official skin:
Australian game designer and esports entrepreneur, Luke Millanta, has been awarded the Guinness World Records™ title for ‘Most followed content creator on Steam’.
The record states: “The most followed content creator on Steam has 121,754 followers, and was achieved by Luke Millanta (Australia), as verified on 23 September 2020.”
The Steam Workshop is the world's largest database of game mod files, with hundreds of thousands of works being submitted every year to an audience of more than 125 million active Steam users.
2020 marks Millanta’s sixth year as a Steam Workshop contributor. During this time, Millanta has collaborated with the likes of Fnatic, Natus Vincere, and Razer to create a variety of content for games such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Team Fortress 2, and Dota 2.
In November 2018, Millanta became the first content creator to pass 100,000 followers on Steam.
More recently, in October 2019, Millanta collaborated with Complexity Gaming, a professional esports organisation with close ties to the Dallas Cowboys, to create a collection of Complexity-branded Counter-Strike: Global Offensive weapon skins.
In May 2016, Millanta won the DigiCreate Steam Workshop Design Contest. His winning entry, a set of Team Fortress 2 game items, was entitled the Imperial Dragon Collection.
Outside of his work as a designer, Millanta serves as the Chief Technology Officer of Hive Gaming, an Australian gaming brand. He joined the company in May 2020, after Hive acquired his virtual goods trading company, Brackenwood Systems, for A$4.2 million.
