This will be a game-changer for the millions of Roblox users that believe they can't make great games, and will even the playing field between individual creators and studios on the platform.
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 10, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- In an innovative approach to make coding and game development accessible to everyone, CodeCombat introduces CodeCombat Worlds, an all new immersive experience that empowers everyone to develop on Roblox.
CodeCombat, with support from Roblox Education, utilized the Roblox Community Fund to bring its proven coding-as-gameplay approach to the platform. This flagship experience for learning Luau coding and game development is part of a Roblox initiative focused on innovating learning experiences and curriculum on the platform, with the goal of supporting 100 million students by 2030.
"Empowering everyone to become a creator lies at the heart of our mission," said Nick Winter, CodeCombat CEO. "Few people are able to learn coding on their own and create immersive experiences. With CodeCombat Worlds, we're opening it up to everyone, making it as easy to create as it is to play, and enabling a new generation to learn and create on Roblox."
Three modes allow users to explore, code, and create in CodeCombat Worlds. The playable learning levels teach the fundamentals of coding in Luau, the foundational programming language of game development on Roblox. Encouraging coding practice and experimentation, visitors freely explore the overworld with friends and program their pets to interact with the world around them. After building just a small amount of coding knowledge, users will create their own experiences in creative mode, which features a suite of acceleration tools to empower anyone to build their own Roblox experience in-game. A new GPT-4-powered Code It For Me feature supercharges creator power, far beyond their current technical knowledge. Creators can share their experiences within CodeCombat Worlds and auto-sync their experiences to Roblox Studio for publishing via a plugin, maintaining Studio compatibility.
By tapping into the immense creative and social power of Roblox, CodeCombat Worlds enables users across the globe to collaborate, create, and learn with peers in a safe and supportive environment.
