Beeism uses Roblox Studio to make models and maps for games such as Egg Hunt and Demented Defense. She’s made fairy wings for avatars to wear, maps that look like pirate ships, and hundreds of other things. But that’s only part of making a game. To bring the games to life, developers use the coding language Lua. Roblox Studio is based on this language. The game code tells all the parts of the game how to behave when players interact with them.
About 30,000 new games are uploaded to Roblox every day. Many of them aren’t traditional games with a definite end point. Some, like Fashion Famous, are quick competitive games where players vote on a winner. In other games, like Binello’s MeepCity, there might not be a goal at all. Instead, players hang out and chat while designing homes, attending a virtual school, or even working at a pizza shop.
That versatility is what keeps developers like Beeism coming back to Roblox. “The possibility of endless possibilities—I can do anything,” she says. “I can make any world I want and be anything I want to be.”
