As early as 2005, the international version of "Roblox" was officially launched, and now it has become a popular 3D sandbox creative community in the world, which is very different from our common mobile game. So, is the game worth playing? Let's dive deep into this game and find out.
The Creative Storm that Started in 2004
Roblox is not a specific sandbox game, it's a community of sandbox games. From FPS, and PRG to sports racing, and survival puzzle solving, you can even experience the charm of a whole virtual city here, visit friends' houses and dress up your own home. These sandbox games are not official from Roblox and are almost all created and participated by players themselves. And Roblox officials also encourage young developers and teams to create games for younger players.
At the online developer conference in August 2020, Roblox shared some interesting stats: 345,000 developers have been profitable on the Roblox platform; the total revenue of all developers will exceed $250 million in 2020. The game "Adopt me!!” has surpassed 10 billion games and more than 1.6 million concurrent users; “Piggy”, a game launched in January 2020, has accumulated nearly 5 billion visits in six months...
Now Roblox has become the world's largest 3D sandbox creative community, where countless players make friends, learn skills, display their talents, and use code and creativity to demonstrate what is called "knowledge is power"!
And Roblox is not only attractive to adults, but also to many children and teenagers. According to ComScore statistics, children under 13 spend more than 50 hours on the Roblox desktop every month. This number surpasses YouTube and is close to Ten times the game platform Steam, which makes Roblox become the No.1 game in the world.
