Roblox: DEFINITIVE Download / Installation Guide / How to Play

Have you heard of Roblox? With the coronavirus pandemic, access to this platform increased exponentially, becoming a fever, especially among children and young people.

But why is Roblox so popular? We will try to understand this in this article. 

What is Roblox

Roblox catalog
The Roblox catalog has hundreds of games available

First of all, you need to understand what exactly Roblox would be. It is a platform that brings together hundreds of free games to play, at the same time that it is itself a game, an MMO (massive multiplayer online game), allowing the interaction between its players.

The idea is to create a “multiverse”. Calm down, I explain: Roblox would be a wide universe where each one can create their own “worlds”, which in this case would be games. Very fun, right?

And it doesn't end there, Roblox on top of it all is also a game creation tool! It is possible to create your own games for free and earn money from them.

The platform was launched in 2006 with an educational focus, but it was in 2020 that a real boom in its popularity was given, being currently accessed by more than half of the youths and children under the age of 16 in the United States. More than 100 million players visit the platform each month.

The main reason for this? The coronavirus pandemic, of course. With so many young people at home unable to go out, access to online games only tends to grow. But it is also the result of everything the platform has to offer. 

In 2019, there were already more than 15 million games available on the platform, in addition to more than 178 million accounts. Expressive, isn't it? And those numbers went up even further in 2020.

So, let's go to the reasons why this platform is so popular:

Game creation

Roblox provides a free tool for any user to be able to create their own games and have them on the platform alongside the hundreds of games already created, Roblox Studio.

Because the majority of Roblox's audience is children, it is possible to make your creations even without much prior knowledge, while at the same time you can learn the basics of programming. It is a tool that besides being very useful, it is also an educator.

In addition, although access to the games is free, it is possible to create a purchasing system within them, allowing the creator to also earn a percentage of what is generated in his own game. 

This tool is a strong differentiator from Roblox, which, in addition, serves to make the games offered on its platform as exclusive, having been created within itself.

It is a very important approach nowadays, when internet access is exploding and the online gaming sector has become increasingly popular, becoming one of the main markets for the future, and the profession of programmer is extremely valued. , and Roblox allows interaction with the area, already producing what may become future professionals in the field. 

In addition to children, older people have also joined the wave of creating games at Roblox, which has resulted in an increase in the quality of their productions.

The downside of Roblox Studio is the language. Currently it is only available in English, Korean and Simplified Chinese, making it more difficult for Brazilians to understand. It is entirely possible, however, to create games that are in Portuguese, as well as several games on the platform that are available in our native language. 

To access Roblox Studio, just click on the “create” option in your browser:

The “create” option is at the top of the screen, very visible

In the application, you can even find the option “create” by clicking on the “…” at the bottom of the screen, but it displays a message that you can only access the Studio from your computer (Windows or MAC).

When you click "create" on your computer, Roblox Studio will start to download and open automatically.

Monetization

Yes, in addition to the fun it is still possible to earn money with Roblox!

Creators who are subscribers of the premium version, are over 13 years old and get 100 thousand Robux with their creations will be able to transform the received Robux into dollars, becoming Roblox partners.

According to the company more than a thousand creators managed to raise 10 thousand dollars with Game Passes and sale of items (microtransactions) in their games.

The monetization of Roblox is also one of the main points for increasing its popularity, even more in times of pandemic, when it becomes an option to make money without leaving home.

Events

Through Roblox, it is possible to gather your friends to play together, as well as create private game servers so that only you and your guests can participate. This function, of course, is paid for with Robux, the virtual currency of Roblox, accessible through purchase.

In addition, periodically, Roblox offers events for its players, from those in which everyone can participate, as is the case with the event Player Nº 2, an event launched to promote the launch of the book of the same name by Ernest Cline (continuation of Player Nº 1), or those for people to watch, such as the RB Battle Championship, an event in which the main Roblox youtubers competed with each other completing missions for a prize.

With the distance and social isolation, Roblox also opened up to another type of event, having been the stage of a show for the first time. It is the performance of rapper Lil Nas X, which took place in November 2020 and attracted more than 30 million visitors.

The organization of this show leaves the door open for more events to be organized on the platform in the future. Who knows, maybe one day you will organize your own events using Roblox?

Ease of Access

In addition to everything already mentioned, Roblox is a very easy and simple to access platform (mainly because it is designed for children).

To access, simply create a username and password, enter your date of birth, and ready, account created successfully. To play the games available, however, you need to download and install the Roblox application, but nothing complicated, since everything is done automatically.
