A quick guide to Roblox

If you have a kid or teen in your life, you’ve most likely heard of Roblox. With over 100 million monthly active users (40 percent of which are female), the multiplayer online game creation system is kind of a big deal.

If your kids aren’t playing Fortnite – the colourful, cartoonish shooter that has recently become a massive after-school (and work lunch-break) craze – they are probably playing Roblox. Like Minecraft, which colonised the minds of basically all school-aged children around 2012-15, Roblox lets players get creative and build things. But it goes further than Minecraft in that you can create entire games in Roblox, from racers to haunted-house adventures to competitive battle arenas. According to the developer, it has 56 million players.

David Baszucki and Erik Cassel first created the beta version, which was originally called DynaBlocks, in 2004. They launched the Roblox Corporation two years later and the platform is now the largest user-generated content site in video games.

It is an entirely online, social game: everything you play has been built by someone else. Naturally, this means Roblox is absolutely full of knock-off user-created riffs on popular games such as Pokémon, Five Nights at Freddy’s and Mario. There is endless content, which helps explain why it is so enduringly popular. One of the most beloved Roblox games right now is a cops-and-robbers riff on Grand Theft Auto called Prison Break, where you either join a team of prisoners trying to escape jail and rob banks, or a team of police trying to arrest them. Because you can technically create anything in Roblox, there are algorithms and moderators beating back the inevitable swearwords and swastikas, but they are not always successful.

Opinions differ when it comes to which Roblox YouTuber is the best, but Denis Kopotun ranks high on most people’s lists. The Canadian — who has over 7.9 million subscribers — posts daily, kid-friendly gaming videos on his channel.
