Roblox is a user-generated massively multiplayer online social gaming platform developed and published by the Roblox Corporation and released in 2006.[3]

In the game, players are able to create their own virtual worlds and design their own games within the platform.[4] Games on Roblox can be designed using a sandboxed edition of the programming language Lua, and game designers can be paid with the in-game currency of Robux, which in turn can be converted to cash. The game is designed to be family-friendly, and is device-agnostic, running on a wide variety of devices, including Android, iOS, Xbox, and Oculus. As of fall 2016, Roblox has over 500,000 game creators designing games, and 30 million active monthly players, who have logged more than 300 million hours of game play. The Roblox Corporation employs more than 200 people in its San Mateo, California headquarters.

Gameplay

In Roblox games, players explore 3-D worlds. Activities in the game world include exploring, crafting items, resource gathering, and combat.

Players can customize their virtual characters with various hats, head shapes, body shapes, clothing, and gear. Players may create their own articles of clothing. However, selling player-created articles of clothing and collectible items require Builders Club, but non-premium players may still create T-shirts, which are decals attached to the front of a player’s torso. Players can collect and trade items, especially limited edition collector items.

Social interaction

Players can add other people they meet in the game to their friends list. Since 2011, this can be done while playing.[53][54] On February 4, 2015, a new update to replace the Friends and Best Friends system, named Friends and Followers, was introduced.[55] This allows more personal game play if wanted. This update allows a maximum of 200 friends and infinite followers. Players also have the option to join community groups.[56] After joining, players can then advertise their group, participate in group relations, and set their primary group.[57][58][59]

The game development and building is done via an application called Roblox Studio. It is a free program that comes with Roblox.[60]

Building

Players use the Roblox Studio built-in building system to construct places with bricks from varying colors and shapes. Players also are able to use user made plugins and tools to build. Players also have the ability to scroll through the Roblox Library and find free models and scripts. Roblox also created an Official Model Maker system where talented model makers are able to create and make their creations visible on the front page of the Roblox Library model section.[61]

Players can use the programming language Lua to dynamically change the environment of the game.[62] Also, plugins can be developed with Lua to be used in Roblox Studio.[63]
