Know an aspiring video game creator? Roblox may just be the opportunity they're looking for

This story about how anyone can make a video game, boiled down, in 1:03 minutes.

What's the fuss?

Novice video game designers are finding massive success in Roblox, an online video game platform that allows its players to create their own games for millions to play.

The situation

Ever wonder why everyone's talking about Roblox latelyIt's because Roblox is more than just game. In fact, it isn't a game at all, but a platform where people play games made by other developers. With Roblox's easy-to-use toolset, game development is enjoyable and can be achieved by anyone.

Just take Ben and Matt Horton for example, who created a game called Boat Ride on Roblox when they were just 13 years old. What began as hobbies turned into careers as their games blossomed on the Roblox platform, having being played more than 100 million times. With each brother earning £100,000 a year with their games, video game development can certainly be a sustainable career choice.

Boiling it down

What makes Roblox unique is that all of it's games are made by its users, not from the company itself. As creators post, share, and play each others content, the feeling of community is strong with 150 million monthly active users.

Roblox allows anyone, including kids, to make their own games and monetize them. As creators receive a portion of proceeds when gamers purchase aesthetic items within their individual games, these creators have the potential to make a boatload of money. The platform is essentially free, so if you or someone you know wants to get into video game development, Roblox provides a fantastic opportunity to do so.
