Over 30 million monthly users are part of the community of Roblox, a platform for online multiplayer games on which the users themselves can create their own video games and design virtual worlds. It's available for Windows PC, macOS, Xbox, iOS, and Android, covering a very broad scope. Not for nothing, over 5 million creators have designed some sort of content for this community.
MOBAs, the most sought content
It's a gaming community in which we can find millions of games of all sorts and in which the majority of which are online multiplayer titles: adventures, arcades, tycoons, competitions... whatever you can think of.
But massive online battle arenas have contributed the most to increase the popularity of this platform allowing players to face up to each other. Neither can we forget about the possibility to customize the characters being able to turn them into avatars that are the spitting image of the user.

Design and development of video games
So, how to develop games for this platform? Well, you can do so thanks to the application called Roblox Studio, which can be downloaded and used free of charge. It's a step-by-step guided system in which users can build different environments with building objects of different shapes and colors. Furthermore, there are also different plug-ins that expand the app's original creation tools. These creations can be shared with the rest of users so that they can use them however they wish from their library.
You've also got the possibility to develop games in the Lua code language, which is compatible with this gaming platform. That's basically because the creation tool is based on the latter and is presented as a sandbox method similar to other games of the likes of Minecraft.
It can be downloaded totally for free but, as usual in these cases, it offers us in-app purchases to be able to expand certain functions.
