Roblox is an online game platform and game creation system developed by Roblox Corporation that allows users to program games and play games created by other users. Created by David Baszucki and Erik Cassel in 2004 and released in 2006, the platform hosts user-created games of multiple genres coded in the programming language Lua. For most of Roblox’s history, it was relatively small, both as a platform and a company. Roblox began to grow rapidly in the second half of the 2010s, and this growth has been accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Roblox is free to play, with in-game purchases available through a virtual currency called Robux. As of August 2020, Roblox had over 164 million monthly active users, including more than half of all American children under 16.
Although Roblox has received generally positive reviews from critics, it has faced criticism for its moderation, microtransactions, and alleged exploitative practices directed toward children.

As one of the top online entertainment platforms for audiences under the age of 18 (Comscore), players enjoy more than a billion hours of engagement on Roblox each month.
Roblox’s proprietary, fully-managed cloud software and infrastructure removes complexity from multi-player gameplay, game updates, scaling, matchmaking, and monetization.
Roblox notes that the platform was designed for kids and teens from the beginning and they’re committed to making safety a priority. “We have a responsibility to make sure our players can learn, create, and play safely,” notes Tami Bhaumik, VP of Digital Civility, Roblox. “This continues to be our most important priority and that will never change.”
She adds that the company has a human review team monitoring for safety in multiple languages and keeping an eye out for chat behavior that clearly indicates an attempt to bring a player off our platform to other, less restrictive third-party chat apps, and for users under 13, filters are even stricter, such as blocking all use of numbers and potentially personal identifiable information. The platform also do not allow the sending of images or video via chat or one-to-one user interactions.
