Achieve It Yourself! is a show hosted by Michael Damiani in which a rotating group of Allies attempt made-up Nintendo achievements submitted by Patrons.

The show was originally produced and hosted by Kyle Bosman through the first two seasons. Following Kyle's departure from Easy Allies, Damiani took over as host and producer starting with Season 3.

History

The show originally began as a Patreon-exclusive six episode show. Achieve It Yourself officially premiered on May 23, 2019 with the first episode being made available to the public.

Due to the show's success, an eight episode second season was announced on August 13, 2019 during the Phase 4 announcements[1]. Season 2 premiered on October 9, 2019 with episodes landing on Patreon early access first and going public a week later. The remaining five episodes of Season 1 remained a Patreon-exclusive.

On March 13, 2020, Kyle Bosman announced via Patreon post[2] that he would be departing from Easy Allies the following month, citing that he needed to find his life's "main thing." In the same post, he mentioned that Damiani would take over as producer for Achieve it Yourself.

On September 17, 2020, Easy Allies announced[3] that as part of their partnership with Roost, some of their series were launching on RoosterTeeth.com. Starting October 21, recent episodes of Achieve It Yourself, the Easy Allies Podcast, Frame Trap, Box Peek, and Mysterious Monsters would be featured on the site. These shows were selected to serve as an introduction to Easy Allies and for the overall fit with Rooster Teeth's audiences. New episodes will still be posted around the same schedule on the Easy Allies YouTube channel and podcast feeds.

On February 1, 2021, Achieve It Yourself! producer Michael Damiani announced on Patreon[4] that the series was returning for a third season with seven new episodes being recorded and produced remotely due to the ongoing global pandemic. They began accepting submissions for new made-up Nintendo achievements with the request that ideas reflect games that are more readily available on Switch to accommodate working from home. Season 3 premiered exclusively for patrons on March 23, 2021 as part of EZX Digital '21.
