Introducing the Game Fund
From Roblox Developer Relations
Roblox is announcing the Game Fund, an exciting new partnering initiative! We’re searching for developers who enjoy experimenting with new technology and want to use Roblox to realise their creative ideas
Starting in July, we will begin accepting applications for the program. Our goal is to partner closely with you to provide funding and support for your content development. Funding for approved participants will start at a minimum of $500,000 per project..
With the launch of the Game Fund, we want new and existing developers to have the resources necessary to build the next generation of Roblox experiences. This program is designed to support developers who are eager to push the boundaries of what Roblox experiences can deliver. Come ready to show off innovative gameplay, ambitious visual designs, and creative ideas that are unlike anything else on the platform!
We will prioritize ideas that encompass:
- Multiplayer focus
- Cross-platform, with mobile optimization in mind
- Social mechanics as key to the experience
- In-game avatars that reflect elements of the userâ€™s platform avatar identity
- Ability to leverage â€˜Metaverseâ€™ items (i.e., that can be equipped on platform avatars, like the ones you buy in marketplace)
If you are accepted into the program, we will partner with you to define key deliverables for your project and provide funding based off of your progress towards these milestones.
More details on this will be shared with you as you progress through the application process.
