Q&A SessionVirtual BLOXcon was a fantastic event. We had tens of thousands of ROBLOXians from around the world drop in to watch our five-hour live broadcast, view recorded footage from each of our summer BLOXcons, and play contest-winning games with ROBLOX staff.¬†We even saw #BLOXcon¬†become a trending topic on Twitter in multiple countries — that’s what roughly 10,000 tweets will do. We poured a lot of effort into presenting the event, but it would have been nothing without your participation and enthusiasm.

While Virtual BLOXcon may be over, it’s not too late to experience everything it offered. We suggest starting with the recording of the livestream; it features two Q&A sessions, product demos, an awards ceremony, gameplay streaming and more.

Community veteran Merely was kind enough to time-stamp the livestream, making it easy for you to jump to the segments that interest you.

Nick Streaming Gameplay

Nick (aka Newtrat) the intern was a hit in the gameplay streaming chair.

We also recommend browsing our BLOXcon playlists. There’s a wealth of content from each city — Chicago, London and New York — much of which features the thoughts and opinions of the attendees, including successful game developers like daxter33 (New York City) and TheGamer101 (London). Each playlist starts with an extended recap of BLOXcon, followed by interviews with people who took part. You can use the players’ controls to navigate the playlists.

Of course, the contest-winning BLOXcon games are still active and waiting to be played some more. Check out ROBLOX.com/bloxcon to visit them.

This wraps up our summer of BLOXcons. We’ve received a lot of feedback about the Virtual BLOXcon, but we’re always looking for more. Don’t hesitate to share your thoughts — your most memorable Virtual BLOXcon experience, the staff you met, etc. — and what you’d like to see us do next.
