Roblox is a massively multiplayer online game creation platform that allows users to design their own games and play a wide variety of different types of games created by other users through Roblox Studio. Roblox hosts social network games constructed of Lego-like virtual blocks.
Roblox is a game creation platform which allows players to create their own games using its proprietary engine, Roblox Studio. Games are coded under a object oriented programming system utilizing the programming language Lua to manipulate the environment of the game. Users are able to create purchasable content through one-time purchases called "Game Passes", and microtransactions through 'Developer Products'. Developers on the site exchange 'Robux' earned from various products on their games into real world currency through Roblox's Developer Exchange system (also known as DevEx). A percentage of the revenue from purchases is split between the developer and Roblox. Roblox Studio supports importing meshes, shadow mapping, parallax mapping, and screen post-processing effects.
Games created through Roblox Studio are hosted through Roblox’s proprietary cloud software for server hosting and matchmaking.
