Roblox is an open-ended sandbox MMO that offers hours and hours of player-generated content in a family friendly space focused on the idea of buildable toys, similar to LEGO Worlds. It focuses primarily on a younger audience, allowing children and teens to play games in a social setting with less risk to be exposed to adult content. The player-submitted game worlds lead the game to be multi-genre; from role-playing hangouts to games with specific goals, such as platformers, survival games or life simulators. For more tech-savvy kids (or adults,) Roblox offers a development engine called Roblox Studio that enables players to create whatever type of game they wish in a more beginner-friendly game engine, using Lua 5.1-based scripting, a library of player-submitted models and a publish feature that allows players to push their game to the website and invite friends to play.
Roblox Key Features:
- Endless Content – Peruse thousands of player-submitted games on the Roblox website and join whatever suits your fancy.
- Family Friendly Controls – Lots of options to keep children safe with maturity filters, heavily moderated chat and a parent log-in to view site activity.
- Social Focus – Make new friends and add them through the Roblox hub, then enter new worlds with them.
- Game Creator – Can’t find the game you want? Learn how to utilize the Roblox Studio and get an introduction to Lua scripting to make a fun game that can be shared with everyone.

Roblox is developed and published by Roblox Corportation, a game studio based in San Mateo, California. Roblox was originally titled “Dynablocks,” thought up in 1994 by David Baszucki, and slowly became what it is today. The Dynablocks domain name was purchased in 2004, later renamed to Roblox, where it grew in popularity and content to become the game website it is currently. The game is available in English and German, and is playable on many platforms, including Android, iOS, Mac, and PC.
