Roblox is an open-ended sandbox MMO that offers hours and hours of player-generated content in a family friendly space focused on the idea of buildable toys, similar to LEGO Worlds. It focuses primarily on a younger audience, allowing children and teens to play games in a social setting with less risk to be exposed to adult content. The player-submitted game worlds lead the game to be multi-genre; from role-playing hangouts to games with specific goals, such as platformers, survival games or life simulators. For more tech-savvy kids (or adults,) Roblox offers a development engine called Roblox Studio that enables players to create whatever type of game they wish in a more beginner-friendly game engine, using Lua 5.1-based scripting, a library of player-submitted models and a publish feature that allows players to push their game to the website and invite friends to play.
