As showcased at the latest RDC 2022, Roblox will receive a massive facelift in terms of the game engine. This means that a wider variety of more powerful tools will be at the disposal of eager developers. In line with this improvement in tech, Roblox recently announced an additional 10 million dollars for the Roblox Game Fund, an international program dedicated to providing funding and support for Roblox Experience developers.
More Funds Means More Innovative Experiences
The Roblox Game Fund was announced in July 2021 on the Roblox Developer Forums. The fund supports developers looking to innovate with the Roblox platform. A minimum of $500,000 is allocated per developer, meaning there is serious support for Roblox developers.
Roblox prioritizes Experiences that focus on multiplayer, social mechanics, and in-game avatars. They are also looking for games that consider mobile optimization, cross-platform experiences, and games that can be monetized with “Metaverse” items.
The additional $10 million is massive and brings the total for the Roblox Game Fund to 35 million dollars.
