Filament Games is now a Roblox Developer!

Roblox, the global online platform and content creation system sensation, just announced its ambitious foray into online interactive educational experiences, and Filament Games is THRILLED to be part of this rollout! 

Say WHAT?  How did this happen?

Over the past several months, Filament Games has been in deep R&D mode, meeting with the Roblox Education team, studying the affordances of the Roblox platform, and applying our time-tested, best-in-class game-based learning methodology to the metaverse. 

In parallel, we’ve been meeting with the Roblox technical team to understand the current state of the platform as well as their technology roadmap while developing internal Roblox technical competencies. 

In the years ahead, Filament will continue to develop internal Roblox content creation talent to support what we predict will be a thriving Roblox Education ecosystem and a real game-changer for game-based learning. With users being able to access Roblox via PC, tablet, Xbox, or phone, and with Roblox’s massive user base, there is such a tremendous potential to bring high-quality learning experiences to the masses!


WOW! What can we expect?

Our first educational Roblox project is near and dear to our little robot hearts <3. Together with the global robotics community, FIRST®, and built on Roblox, we are orchestrating a new concept for users to experience the wonders of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Using everything that Roblox does incredibly well – things like identity, player agency, coopertition/competition – and the rigorous STEM programming and core values like Gracious Professionalism® and Coopertition® from FIRST – we are building an unprecedented virtual robotics experience. In the upcoming title based on RoboCo and available on Roblox, users will be able to build their own robots and compete in casual and structured challenges with other players, learning the building blocks of robotics in the metaverse. 

This will be in addition to the FIRST® robotics challenges that are already being developed for the Steam version of RoboCo. Stay tuned for more!

So cool! We want IN!

This is what I’m most excited about. Now that we’ve established our core educational practice on Roblox, we are able to offer our Roblox Educational Development Services to our clients all over the world. So if you have an existing media IP, an existing educational experience, or a new idea that you would love to be a part of the Roblox Education initiative, reach out!
