ROBLOX Makes An Impact On Young Game Makers



Heard of ROBLOX? Of course, especially if you are in the 10-18 year old demographic. ROBLOX is the leading Massively Multi-player Online (MMO) game engine which enables young people and the young-at-heart to develop, play and monetize online games. We caught up with David Baszucki, CEO and co-founder of this popular MMO game platform at the recent Maker Faire - Bay Area. David discusses ROBLOX and some interesting ROBLOX news like Developers Exchange Program, upcoming Android release and how Movie brands are using the ROBLOX platform. Check out his video!

ROBLOX Makes Future Game Developers

"ROBLOX is a creation engine, every game has not created by us but by hardcore developers"

"ROBLOX developers can create realistic experiences - cars that roll, buildings that fall apart"

"A lot of digital properties are starting to use ROBLOX, not just a place for banner  or video advertisements, but as a place to build 3D experiences that might show off the property"



SocialGreg's Uptake

I have been a fan of LEGO, Minecraft and entrepreneurs. ROBLOX combines all three. Before the interview, I was observing the developers in the ROBLOX booth at the Maker Faire and it was just inspiring. What I saw were developers under the age of 18 creating, playing and sharing ROBLOX games. The Developer's Exchange Program is just incredible. Recently, VentureBeat reported that a pair of ROBLOX game developer's earned around $10,000 in a month. Parents, forget the 529 College plan, ROBLOX is your college savings plan. David mentioned that Movies are using ROBLOX to extend their digital footprint by creating their characters in ROBLOX. Another transmedia extension for movies. Catch them at ROBLOX.com.
