If you’re the type of person who loves creating things and sharing them with the world, you’re in the right place – that spirit is what fuels ROBLOX. We recognize that not everyone is an aspiring builder or game designer, though, and we just launched three contests that give users who best express themselves through art and design a chance to make a significant mark on ROBLOX.Continue reading
We were blown away. Not just by the sheer amount of entries we received for our ROBLOX Studio splash screen contest (over 3,000!), but by the amount of ingenuity, creativity, and talent on display in each of the entries. We had originally postulated that we’d be choosing five winners–but we just couldn’t distill that much awesome into five winning slots. So we’ve expanded our circle to include 10 winners, each of whom will receive the prize of 20,000 Robux.Continue reading
Last week, we called on the graphic designers of ROBLOX to help us design our splash page for ROBLOX Studio, and you guys have certainly come through. We’ve received over two thousand entries at the time of this writing, and they keep on coming.
We’re amazed at the amount of creativity, ingenuity and skill that went into each of the submissions. While this is already one of the most popular contests we’ve run, we thought we’d create a friendly reminder to those who have yet to join.Continue reading
We’re in need of some graphic designers! That’s right, if you’re proficient with Photoshop, Illustrator, GIMP, Paint, or any other design/art software, we have a project for you. We need a new splash screen for ROBLOX Studio, and like nearly all facets of our platform, we thought it’d be cool to ask you to build one! How would you artistically represent your experience with Studio?Continue reading
A few weeks ago, ROBLOX launched a promotion to raise awareness of its impending mobile app release: at random times throughout each day, we put an extremely limited virtual ROBLOX Tablet on sale in the Catalog. Users who own one of these rare tablets when ROBLOX Mobile officially debuts will receive brand new iPad 3s from ROBLOX.
Since we released the tablets, we’ve been monitoring trade activity to see which users purchased them. We were curious to see how many users would simply keep them (to win an iPad), and how many would leverage them to trade for other rare items. Though not every user who got a ROBLOX Tablet chose to flip it, some did–and for some valuable virtual items.Continue reading
ROBLOX is in the process of bringing our 9.8 million user-created games to the iPad. The first release of ROBLOX Mobile that supports online play is almost here. To raise awareness in the ROBLOX community of our imminent launch, we’re running a promotion targeted at ROBLOX game developers that will give them an opportunity to win a brand-new iPad 3.Continue reading
The results are in!
Hundreds of ROBLOX users shot, edited and submitted video trailers for their games after we announced our video trailer contest a couple weeks ago. We rounded up the entries and narrowed it down to the 24 best video trailers, then left it up to our users to choose the top five. Each of the five winners banks 20,000 Robux. Plus, everyone who participated receives this Director’s hat to represent their artistic vision and style wherever they go in ROBLOX.
3,000 ROBLOX users voted and the results we’re so close that the top two submissions were separated by a fraction of a point. Here are your choices:Continue reading
