Roblox, a virtual world where players can create their own games and share them, is gaining notoriety, recently surpassing 1 million registered users since its inception about two years ago.

Mostly free with some pay features, Roblox is an online gaming site where “players can create, customize, buy, and sell content like custom characters, models, virtual spaces, and games to play,” according to Virtual World News.

Roblox players can choose the options of either playing “free games made by the developers of the website” or make their “own games and play them as well as share them,” according to eworldpost.

There is also a 3D designing environment that is very easy to use and player-friendly, and gives the game a very professional look. The tools are simple and straightforward, allowing for wide appeal. The game also gives a great opportunity to kids who want to express their creativity through creating their own characters and environments.

According to Roblox founder and CEO David Baszucki: "Everything on Roblox is generated by the player, and this gives the users a sense of ownership and pride that the traditional video game does not. Roblox makes building fun. The learning is accidental.”
