What exactly is Roblox?
What follows is an explanation of what’s going on if you’ve somehow ended up on this page without understanding what the Roblox game is or if a family member has requested you to assist them.
Roblox is a game development platform that was established in 2006.
These games may range from first-person shooters to platformers to turn-based role-playing games and everything in between.
To create your first Roblox game, you’ll need specific software.
If you or a member of your family is already a Roblox player, you should already have a Roblox account. If you don’t already have one, go to the Roblox game website and fill out the form to get one. Following that, you’ll need to get a particular piece of software to design your game.
Upon logging in, go to the Roblox home page and select the Create button located at the top of the page. On the new screen, choose Creating Start, followed by Download Studio to download the Roblox creation program from the Roblox website.
Start Create your first game of Roblox.
You may start developing your game immediately now that you have your program. Of course, it’s not that easy, as with many things. Your initial steps depend on the kind of game you intend to develop.
One of the most significant characteristics of Roblox Studio is its large number of game templates. These templates are ideal for building on solid foundations. Choose something essential to learn the ropes for your first time developing a game.
We strongly suggest that you create an obstacle course called an Obby as your first game. These kinds of games are not only prevalent in Roblox, but are also simple to make with or without a template. Open Roblox Studio to start, then either choose Baseplate or Obby, depending on how you start.
Create a Roblox game with the help of Roblox Studio.
First and foremost, you must download and install Roblox Studio before you can begin developing your game.
- Create an account on Roblox and go to the “Create” page, after which you may download Roblox Studio
- After launching the application, login with your Roblox account once again
- Choose “New” from the drop-down menu on the left sidebar.
- Select the “All Templates” option from the drop-down menu.
- Choose the game template that you want to use.
If this is your first Roblox game, we recommend starting with the Obby since it is the most straightforward game type to build. Once the template has been loaded, you will be presented with the UI of the game environment, which has all of the game features already implemented. Here’s how to create a custom Obby game from scratch.
- As a default, the game is played in the light of day. Change the lighting settings by selecting “Lighting” from the right-hand sidebar. Then choose “Properties – Lighting” from the drop-down menu and scroll down to the “Data” section. Select “TimeOfDay” from the drop-down menu and enter the appropriate time.
- To access any of the components, for example, one of the platforms, just click on it. To change the colour of the text, choose “Color” from the drop-down menu at the top of your screen and then the colour you want.
- Choose “Scale” from the drop-down menu at the top of your screen to alter the size of an element.
- To change the size of an element, choose it from the drop-down box at the top of your screen and click “Scale.”
- Then, using a keyboard snapshot or the “Copy” and “Paste” buttons from the editor menu, you may copy and paste existing platforms onto your new platform.
- Optionally, choose “Part” from the drop-down box at the top of the page to create a new platform.
- To include red platforms that players must avoid, choose “Collisions” from the drop-down menu at the top of your screen and drag the platform to the desired location.
- Choose optional extra components from the left-hand sidebar, such as pine trees, brickwork, and other such objects.
It is now time to put all game components in place according to your preferences and put your game through its paces.
- Navigate to the “Test” tab by selecting it from the drop-down menu at the top of your screen.
- Make an effort to finish your Obby map. If everything is working well, go to the following step, which is about releasing your game.
Before you can publish your game on Roblox, you must first submit it for review by the Roblox administration team. Here’s how to go about it:
- Select “File” from the drop-down menu in the upper-left corner of your screen.
- Create a title for your game, choose a genre, and describe administrators and other Roblox users.
- Click on the “Create Place” button and wait for a response from the Roblox developers.
What is the best way to publish games on Roblox?
Before your game can be published on Roblox, the Roblox administration staff must assess its quality and check for any breaches of the Roblox rules. Once you’re happy with the game you’ve created in Roblox Studio, choose the “Publish to Roblox” option from the drop-down menu and click “Create Place.” Then, wait for a response. Once a decision is made on your game, you should get an email notifying you of the decision.
