Roblox is an admired gaming platform developed by Roblox Corporation. Millions of people come together on the platform every day to create, imagine and share experiences with each other in immersive, user-generated three-dimensional (3D) worlds. It is believed that the variety of gameplay on the platform are just as limitless as the imagination of the creators themselves.
All the games have been built by members of the Roblox community, for members of the community. On the platform, players can build the ultimate theme park, design a dream home, become a superhero or compete as a professional race car driver, among others.
Roblox invites players to create their own games, using its proprietary system, Roblox System. These games can then be played by other users. The games are coded under an object-oriented programming system, which utilizes a dialect of the programming language, Lua.
Users can design and introduce purchasable content through one-time purchases, also known as game passes. Roblox also features microtransactions, which can be bought more than once. It is also known as products or developer products.
It is important to note that the revenue from purchases is split between the developer, and the Roblox Corporation. However, the corporation receives 70 percent while the developer receives 30 percent.
In-game currency and items
As mentioned above, players can purchase products on the platform. However, they can also sell and create digital items, which can be used to decorate their virtual character. They should remember that clothing items can be bought by anyone, but only premium membership players can sell it.
While only Roblox administrators can sell gear, body parts, accessories and packages under the official Roblox user account, some accessories can be published by a few users with past experience working with Roblox Corporation.
To purchase the above-mentioned items, players will need to collect the in-game currency, Robux. They can obtain it by purchasing it with real money. Additionally, it can be collected from a recurring stipend given to players with a premium membership. It can also be obtained from other players, by producing and selling virtual content on the platform.
