What is Roblox?
Roblox is a free-to-play, popular online gaming platform that allows users to play and create games through an active online community. It was created by David Baszucki and Erik Cassel in January 2004 and officially launched in September 2006.
Roblox works by hosting several user-created games with multiple genres. It also uses Lua as its programming language. Throughout the late 2000s, Roblox was a small company with a relatively small fanbase.
Its growth as a gaming community began in the 2010s and was even more popular during the COVID-19 pandemic. Roblox now has 55 million daily active users globally, including teens and children under 16.
Although it is free-to-play, Roblox also has a virtual currency called Robux. It can be used to buy in-game purchases such as premium avatars, DLCs, and in-game passes.
Players in Roblox can make their games through Roblox Studio. These games are coded via an object-oriented programming (OOP) system using the Lua programming language to control and create the environment of the game.
Creators can also generate purchasable items which can only be bought once, known as a special game pass. Another item that can be purchased in Roblox is developer products—which can be bought more than once.
