"Chim chim chums, it's Will Ryan of DAGames here!"
At the time he was at Newgrounds, Will worked on many different flash animations that gave him a wide amount of popularity on the site. Some of his most famous animations on Newgrounds were the Comix series, the Reality series, Taking Fight Nights Off, and One Animatronic at Freddy's. He still continues to do animation on this day, but not so often. His time as a musician began in 2005 when he formed a band with a friend of his; Josh, initially named Land of Hell. Later on in 2008, the band was renamed Colony, and following this, a new member had joined; Danny. However, in 2009, Josh unfortunately left the group due to unfavorable circumstances. With his departure however, Will and Danny renamed their band to Onyx Colony, to show that they were much stronger and would not stop at anything. Sometime later, Josh reunited with Will and Danny to continue his musical career. In the end though, Will and the other members of Onyx Colony withdrew to go their own ways. Despite this, Will continued to make music on his own under the name of W.A.R. (His initials), which led to the creations of songs such as Hey You Good Lookin, Come to my Back Garden, Imagination, and most famously; About to Explode, which would eventually become the music for every intro sequence in future DAGames Let's Plays. As a Let's Player, he was inspired to take a shot at the genre after taking part in a few Let's Plays on Chris Brown's channel, and on January 11, 2014, he announced that DAGames would become a new part of the channel, with his first series being Super Mario 3D World. At the time in which DAGames was just getting started, Will decided to make music based on the games that he covered on the channel, starting off with "It's Time to Die," based on the Five Nights at Freddy's series. This, as well as future songs released since then, resulted in the channel gaining widespread popularity. Aside from being well known as a Let's Player, Musician, and animator, Will has also had lots of practice in Voice acting, with some of his more well known roles coming from channels like SmashBits, but also had a spot in TomSka's asdfmovie series.
