Frequently Asked Questions

In Roblox, an escape room is a type of game that usually involves puzzles, obstacles, and other situations in which players must escape. Like tycoon games and simulator games, escape room-style games are very popular on the platform, and many top games see millions of plays!

As kids’ game design skills advance, so will their critical thinking about Roblox! The client-server model is an important part of that progression: budding game designers will start thinking of players as “clients” in the framework of creating a great multiplayer experience. Excellent client-server relations ensure every player is having the same engaging experience.

In a community of 1.9 million Roblox game developers, and endless opportunities to play, learn, and even monetize, how do game designers stand out from the crowd? This is just one of many questions kids answer as they learn alongside the popular game. Simply playing Roblox transforms into active game design and critical thinking; learning with Roblox is as fun as it is educational and motivating!

Top Roblox games boast billions of game plays and millions of dollars in revenue for game creators. And learning to design engaging features like escape room puzzles and customized game mechanics will help kids get started on the path towards a career in game design.
