This article will show you how to become a game developer. This guide will show you how to make a Roblox Game using Roblox Studio. You’ll also learn how to publish your creation and how to manage its privacy settings.
Roblox Studio allows you to create a Roblox game
Before you can create your game, you must first install Roblox Studio. Follow these steps to get Roblox Studio.
- Log in to Roblox, navigate to the “Create Tab”, then download Roblox Studio.
- Start the program, then log in with your Roblox account.
- Choose “New” from the left sidebar.
- Navigate to the “All Templates” tab.
- Choose the game template you prefer.
We recommend the Obby game type if you’re starting your Roblox game. After the template has loaded, you’ll see the game’s interface with all the mechanics in place. How to create a custom Obby-game:
- The default setting is daylight. Select “Lighting” in the right sidebar to change it to nighttime. Next, click on “Properties-Lighting” and scroll down to “Data”. Select “TimeOfDay”, and choose the time you want.
- Click on any element, such as one of the platforms. Click “Color” in the menu at top of the screen to change the color.
- Select “Scale” in the menu at top of the screen to change the element’s size.
- Click “Move” and “Rotate” to change the element’s position. You can drag elements by holding down the left mouse button.
- You can add regular platforms by copying and pasting existing ones with a keyboard screenshot, or using the “Copy” button and “Paste” buttons in the editor menu.
- To add a new platform, you can click “Part” in the menu at the top.
- Click “Collisions” to add red platforms players must avoid. Then place the platform wherever you want.
- You can also choose additional elements from the left sidebar such as bricks or pine trees.
Once you have all the elements in place, it is time to test your game. To do this, follow the steps below:
- Navigate to the Test tab from the menu at top of the screen.
- Complete your Obby map. If your Obby map works, you can move on to the next section: publishing your game.
You must first send your Roblox game to Roblox admin for review before publishing it. Here are the steps:
- Click the “File” button in the upper-left corner.
- Select “Publish to Roblox”
- Name your game and select the genre. Add a description for Roblox admins and Roblox users.
- Click “Create a Place” to wait for a response from Roblox.
Notice: Roblox Studio allows you to create other types of games. This is the same as creating an Obby-style game. While some elements might be different, the general editing tools and steps are the same.
