Liam J. MacKay, also known as Nilesy, Nilesy_ or Nilesyy (pronounced Nile-zee) is a Scottish member of the Yogscast. He joined the Yogscast in July 2012. He is the only one of the Yogscast who plays Team Fortress 2 regularly. He also plays World of Warcraft and The Binding of Isaac. He manages the YouTube channel NilesyRocks.
Nilesy; entrepreneur and pooling enthusiast. An early adopter in pool float technology, Nilesy started his own business selling portable pools to the dehydrated masses. Nilesy’s Greatest and Best Pools and Pool Accessories is synonymous with quality, excellence and really good cheap pools you should buy one. If Nilesy had any words of advice for fledgling start-up businesses, it would be this: please purchase a portable pool. Long-time friend of the Yogscast, Nilesy is usually found on his channel playing indie games, RPG games, roguelikes, or being weirdly good at workplace sims. Does lots of co-ops with Hannah because she is his good bud (and also one of the few to actually purchase a portable pool).
Nilesy started his YouTube channel with hand drawn pictures and then moved on to video games such as Minecraft and World of Warcraft . He met the Yogscast around the time that they began posting Cataclysm videos and joined Kungaloosh Anonymous to raid with them. He soon started making videos for Machinima and soon after, Nilesy joined the Yogscast. He started a series with Sjin called "Diamonds in the Rough", in which they attempt to find good adventure maps among ones that are rated poorly, or are undiscovered.
Nilesy, teamed up with Panda, fell to the armed Sjin within the first couple of seconds into the game. When all the dead players got revived, he was amongst the first ones of them to die, killed (again) by Sjin's bare hands.
Later in the series, he applied for a job as Sjin and Sips' pool boy. However, he answered some of their questions incorrectly, but was dropped into a pit after revealing he was Scottish. He redeemed himself by answering Sips' final question correctly, but there was still no way to bring him back up to the surface, so Sjin activated the crushing device, killing him. His items were then sucked up by a pipe and into a chest. Sips and Sjin then found his marble house built near their compound and scrapped it for the marble blocks.
Some time afterwards, Rythian and Zoey found out that he built the pool in the town of NewPool. He later founded his own company 'Nilesy's Best And Greatest' specializing in the sale of portable pools for ten diamonds or 'friendship'. After a while babysitting Zoey's baby volcano Jim and building Zoey, Rythian, and Teep a pool, he left them. He has since teamed up with Hannah to help out at Lombucket Industries.
In Round 1, he and Panda were put into the 'Watery Cage of Shame' by Ridgedog due to Sips framing them. Panda went up onto the mage tower where he found the voodoo doll and Nilesy was scouring the immediate surroundings until he found a bow and a stash of arrows. Nilesy and Panda later reunited at the tower. They encountered Lewis and Duncan, who managed to kill Nilesy. Lewis killed Panda who was unable to use his voodoo doll due to low hunger. The doll then fell into the possession of Lewis, who used it to knock off Alsmiffy of the Hatfilms and, much later, also GameChap off the winners' podium.
In Round 2, Nilesy went to the jail first and got two zombie spawner eggs which he used on Sparkles* and Parv, and with the zombies' help, he managed to kill both of them. Later on in the game, Nilesy and Panda both drowned.
In Round 3, at the beginning of the game, Nilesy entered the jail, but unfortunately set off a trap which spawned the two zombies that killed him. Panda died much later due to fall damage when he freaked out at Sparkles*' billhook.
Binding of Isaac
Was renamed to The Binding of Nilesy early on in the series, and was a constant, long-standing video release until recently. Videos are still released occasionally, however due to lack of views (and therefore revenue) the series is slowing down. Binding of Isaac is a frequently played game on Nilesy's livestreams as his goal is to get all of the Steam achievements for the game and complete all of the in-game challenges.
