There are two themes that are extremely timely in the industry right now that Roblox has been pioneering for over a decade: cloud gaming and user-generated content (UGC). From its inception over 13 years ago, the Roblox platform was built on a cloud-based game engine that now powers over 100 million monthly active users. Just as important, however, to Roblox’s growth is the fact that all 50+ million experiences on the Roblox platform were built and published by the Roblox creator community.

Cloud gaming is one of the biggest opportunity areas and one of the hottest topics in the games industry today with new and existing companies of all sizes joining the market. Roblox is truly a pioneer in cloud gaming, having mastered cloud and multi-platform gaming from its inception. The company has developed an industry-leading, highly technologically-advanced proprietary cloud platform that enables its 100 million monthly players to access Roblox and its 50+ million experiences from almost any device.

From AAA publishers adding UGC and level-design options to their games, to the rise in successful games centered entirely around user creation, UGC is all the rage in modern gaming. For more than a decade, UGC has been core to Roblox and a key component of the platform’s growth. All games on the Roblox platform are coded, scripted, and fully developed by the Roblox community of creators. Claus has a wealth of practical & technical insights and expertise on what it takes to successfully build a game and a platform around UGC and the opportunities and challenges that come with this, which will be of interest to a professional and technically-minded audience.

This talk will dive into the primary market drivers that will influence companies of all sizes and industry experience and will outline technical and engineering challenges the industry faces as it increasingly moves to a cloud-based, cross-platform, user-generated ecosystem.
