So… What is Roblox?
Roblox is an online game creation tool where most of the games are created by amateur game creators. These game makers are able to create and publish games to the community using tools that the website gives you, and users can try creating games they can’t find anywhere else online. These games can then be played by anyone anywhere in the world, often online together, through a phone or tablet application or a web browser.
So, we know what Roblox is… What do we need to be aware of?
Because the content in Roblox is user-generated it doesn’t get the same rigorous age ratings as content made by companies like EA Games.
Roblox as a website is rated PEGI 7 in the UK, with rating details that explicitly say there is no blood. This rating, however, is only a rating of the platform itself and a few sample games. There is no rating on the games created.
Having said this, Roblox does monitor and filter games that are deemed inappropriate for the platform, with reasons for deletion including swearing, graphic violence and inappropriate imagery.
