Welcome to Part 2 of our everything you need to know about the Roblox guide. If you haven’t read Part 1 yet, you can read it here. In a nutshell, we explained briefly what is this phenomenon called Roblox and what makes it so popular with both kids and adults.
In this part of our guide, we’re going to explore the creative gaming platform in more depth.
What can you do in Roblox?
Like any create-and-share platform, Roblox offers up three things that you can do within its vast ocean of content. That is the surface level of it, though. On YouTube, you can make videos and share them, while other people can view them and comment. Roblox, though, has interactivity at its core. Whether you’re enjoying other people’s creations or creating experiences yourself, the kinds of interactions you come into contact with will vary tremendously.
We can’t possibly describe every single experience and game ever made in Roblox. Instead, we’ll outline the three core activities within the platform and let your own imagination run wild.
In Roblox, You Can Make Games
The core creative aspect of Roblox, just like with Mario Maker 2, is to create games. By downloading the platform’s creative suite called Roblox Studio, you can begin your journey as a budding game developer. The company behind the game estimates there are over 2 mil creators making use of their software to build their own games.
These games can range from bite-sized single level romps to big, complex multilevel adventures. It’s likely that most users, especially children, will make smaller games to enjoy with their friends or on their own. However, there are also users, and even teams of users, with higher ambitions. These are the Roblox creators who have gone as far as to make the platform their career. Thanks to the platform’s virtual currency, called Robux, game creators can build and make money off their creations.
In Roblox, You Can Share Experiences
Creations in Roblox don’t necessarily have to be games with a beginning and an end. They can also operate like virtual meeting spots where you and your friends can hang out. This is similar to how millions of players use Minecraft regularly. You on your own or with your friends, can join in on a single world and build it to your liking. In many ways, this is reminiscent of Legos or even making pillow forts. It’s a way for people of all ages to take a world and shape it the way they want. You could say, in that respect, that Roblox is the dream space the actual world isn’t.
In Roblox, You Can Enjoy Other People’s Creativity
The simplest way to enjoy Roblox is by diving into its vast library of content. With over 2 mil creators making experiences and games on a regular basis, you’re never starved for something new to play and enjoy. Better yet, because of Roblox you have less need to buy new AAA games as often. Getting your gaming fix in Roblox can be a free or low-cost endeavor that can offer you hours upon hours of fun.
This is everything you need to know about Roblox, the creative platform that has captured the imaginations of over 100 mil users. You download it to play, create, and explore the content for free on your computer, mobile device, or console.
