Back in 2004, developers David Baszucki and Erik Cassel had a plan for an MMO that would allow players to create their own games and worlds, calling it “Roblox”. The game was released two years later, and though it didn’t have a lot of traction at first, would slowly develop into one of the world’s most popular games, especially among children.
Since the 2010s saw the release of “Roblox” on mobile devices, there has been an explosion in popularity and creativity from those that make their own games within “Roblox”. There are countless games to pick from that really show off how creative you can get with “Roblox”, with these five that you might have missed truly setting the standard.
Welcome to Bloxburg
Welcome to Bloxburg is a popular “Roblox” game developed by user Coeptus, where you can design and build a virtual home, chill with friends, and work a variety of jobs. A player can choose to start off with a prebuilt home or create their own on their 30 x 30 plot of land.
Homes aren’t the only thing you can build on your land. You can build a farm, a restaurant, a hotel, or a small village. A player can pay for access to a larger plot of land and the ability to create multiple stories in their home.
Over ten billion players have visited MeepCity, making it one of the most popular “Roblox” games. User AlexNewtron created this casual MMO-style game, similar to and inspired by games like Club Penguin and Toontown. Its main purpose is to serve as a social hangout platform, although players have homes they can personalize by going to some of the shops in the city.
Using the city’s currency of coins, you can make a visit to the home improvement shop, where you can change the interior or exterior design of your home. There’s a toy shop where you can purchase tons of fun items. There’s also a furniture store you’ll find plenty of cool items for your rooms, party supplies, outdoor decor, and more.
Theme Park Tycoon 2
Theme Park Tycoon 2, developed by user Den_S, is a game where players can create their own amusement parks, food vendors, and more for other players to visit and enjoy. There are five different types of rides offered in the game like roller coasters, water rides, transportation rides, intense rides, and some less intense rides.
Players can customize the rides to their liking on their own plot of land. Neighboring players within the server can visit your amusement park and rate their experience, earning your achievements and access to special items to adorn your park with.
Work at a Pizza Place
Work at a Pizza Place, developed by users Dued1 and RBXZach, is another highly popular “Roblox” game that has accumulated over four billion visits. In the game, you work as an employee at a pizza place, choosing from jobs like cook, cashier, pizza boxer, delivery person, supplier, and manager.
Working as a team, you and your fellow employees make and serve guests their food, earning you coins. With those, you can buy items to fill your virtual home with while on break.
Build a Boat for Treasure
