He was first majorly known for the original Lumber Tycoon. This game was created the very day that Defaultio joined Roblox. The description reads: "VIP: 

-Tycoon-VIP-item?id=5768557. "The goal of this game is to cut down trees, cut them in your sawmill, and sell the cut planks at Home Depot to get money and upgrade your sawmill, buy chainsaws, build your house, etc. Have fun. If you have VIP, you're a winner. What it does is in its description, so don't go asking me "Z0MG Where IS da ViP ROOo00oM?!!?!?!?!?!?!?1!?1/1/11111." Because if you say that, you obviously haven't read the shirt's description."

In a Roblox video, Defaultio states that the original Lumber Tycoon was inspired by his mother's idea and that he never knew it would still be popular today.
