The Hivory Hub is a YouTube channel co-owned by both Evan Lin (Pandaboy78) and YouTuber Konon Risk (KomaruTheHylian64) Members of the channel include Tyler Janzen (CrustyMuffin33) and YookaLayleeHub. The YouTube channel posts videos relating to everything on Yooka-Laylee.
Near the end of 2016, Evan was approached by Konon to start a YouTube channel based around Yooka-Laylee content. The channel was created on Friday, December 16th, 2016.
It was not until over a month later on January 17th, 2017 that the channel posted their first main video titled: Yooka-Laylee News & Predictions - Discussion - Featuring Gabocarina96!. The channel then posted beta soundtracks from Yooka-Laylee and their analysis video on the Yooka-Laylee - Multiplayer Reveal Trailer.After that, the channel began to post its main "Quick Update" series, in which the channel posts about news regarding Yooka-Laylee.
Around the beginning of April 2017, the channel received a pre-release copy of Yooka-Laylee, and recorded footage to publish on April 10th and 11th. One of these videos that was published was titled: Yooka-Laylee - JonTron's Removed Voice, in which they located and recorded Jonathan Aryan Jafari's removed voice. After the video was published, it immediately gained over 60,000 views within a week. The video was put onto The Cutting Room Floor's Yooka-Laylee page, and Censored Gaming's video titled: Here's The JonTron Dialogue That Was Cut From Yooka-Laylee, which gained over 750,000 views.
The channel currently continues to post "Quick Update" and "Guide" videos onto the channel, including the Quills' locations in the future.
- The channel name "The Hivory Hub" was not the original name for the channel. The first name that Konon Risk came up with was "Playtonic Universe." Evan then made a list of other names that he thought, one of which was the name "Playtonic Pals". Evan then approached Tyler Janzen (CrustyMuffin33), wherein the name "Hivory Hub" was solidified.
- The name "Hivory Hub" is a pun. Hivory Towers is the HUB world of Yooka-Laylee, while hub also meaning "the effective center of an activity," This is because the channel is the "effective center" of Yooka-Laylee related content.
