In 2019, van den Bussche signed with BroadbandTV (BBTV), a Vancouver-based digital network that furnishes content creation as well as monetization services to its partner channels.

In 2018, van den Bussche released a simple arcade game, named – ”Impossible Runner.” He said:
“I found programming quite hard. I had no experience with any type of programming language, I didn’t know how it worked so I had to learn it all from scratch.”
“Impossible Runner” is now available to download on Google Play, iOS, and Steam.
”Publishing in the iOS store was hard as well. I also found bug fixing quite difficult,” said Jordi.
In December 2019, he tweeted:
“2 years ago I learned how to code, design and create games. I made Impossible Runner which was downloaded more than 200k times.”
He also founded Webble Games, an indie game studio with a mission to make fun games for PC/Consoles.
Webble Games’ first game was Havocado – a multiplayer fighting game where you must use anything at your disposal to come out on top.
During an interview, Jordi declared:
“With Havocado, I looked pretty exhaustively at games that worked for YouTube but never really took off for gamers.”
Kwebbelkop later added:
“I played all these games and found, I think, what didn’t work so well for gamers. So, really – by process of elimination – we arrived at Havocado.”
He announced on Twitter in December 2019:
“Today we started working on our 2nd game at Webble Games. Can you guess what it’s about?”
In 2016, van den Bussche began dating Azzyland.
