So you have finished your project and have your game.
What now?

Bob the Dev.
Bob the dev: What now?


Most developers will wait till the players will come, or spend a few thousand ROBUX on advertisements.

This soon fails when they run out of funds, or can not seem to hold the players in the game.

The reason is that there are different aspects to a popular game.
Just having a good game these days is not enough.
But with this advice, your game can become the next Jailbreak, or Murder Mystery.

First advice.


Reach out to the popular people!
That is very easy for me to say, but you how do exactly go about that?
Dropping into a stream on Twitch.tv can do wonders if your game is good. Many streamers would love to try a game that has not been seen before.

twitch site category ROBLOX


Youtubers are usually very active on Twitter. Try sending them a PM there. You can find a lot of Youtubers that play Roblox by searching for the ROBLOX hashtag.


Second advice.


Make sure your game is actually "fun". How harsh this may sound, the game might not be as fun as you think it is. Let other people try the game so you can get good feedback. Try posting your game on reddit.com/r/roblox for example. Make an account and post to the subreddit. They will mostly give very honest feedback. Which brings us to the third tip.


Third advice.


Be active in forums. Now the Roblox forums have shut down you lost a way to promote your game.
That was a big channel for a lot of small devs to get their game know. Google around and search for game related forums that have a ROBLOX section. Post your game there. Do not overdo this, and make sure your post belongs to the forum. If not, it is spam and you will get your posts deleted. Which will trash your efforts.

Fourth advice.


Keep encouraged! Advertising can be the hardest part of making a game popular, but if you keep trying you will succeed. Keep updating your game, keep searching for ways to promote your Roblox game and the rewards will show.



If you have any tips for devs that try to promote their game with no ROBUX feel free to share so in the comments.

There are a lot of survival games on Roblox.
I went ahead and played a lot of them. Out of those I made a list on which survival games are the most fun.

Survival games got popular lately thanks to games like Pubg, Dayz and Rust.
These games usually cost a pretty penny, but if you can endure the Roblox physics the games below can be a fun alternative to play alone, or play with friends!


Number 1. Apocalypse Rising (links directly to game)




The most popular survival game so far is Apocalypse Rising.
Apocalypse Rising was one of the first survival games on Roblox that gave the "real" experience of a survival simulator. You can scavenge for food, clothes and weapons and target other players. As bonus it also has good working cars. Don't step in front of them, I had bad experiences with that.
It features permadeath, which means when you die you loose all your items and you have to find them back, or find new items if your backpack is stolen.

Number 2. Isolation (links directly to game)



This game starts with an unnerving music track. Upon joining the server I noticed I had a basic hunger and thirst bar, and a stamina bar. This was all not that special. It became fun when I realized I could make my own base, craft my own tools and weapons. I unfortunately screw up by falling in the water, which kills the survivor.



Number 3. Primal Life (links directly to game)



Different from the usual survivor games, this one gives you the opportunity to live as a dinosaur in Roblox! Hunt others, eat and drink, roar to scare off the enemies if you are big enough.


Number 4. Survival Apocalypse (links directly to game)


Survival Apocalypse is other than the survivor games mentioned before. In this one you are not focussed on PVP, but on zombies. Survive from the zombies, craft materials, build bases and guns.
This game is very great in comparison with others when it comes to PVE.


Number 5. Dead Winter (links directly to game)




This one is a fast paced survival game. You need to gather guns and clothes and try to survive the brutal winter that comes every 10 minutes. Here comes the difference between this survival game and the others. You can hide in bunkers, but there are not that many bunkers, and you have to share them with other players. This becomes a strategic war on what bunker you are going to hide in, and if you will shoot the enemy players that will be there. They might work together with you, they might not. With snipers, machine guns and pistols you can keep yourself busy for hours killing players that run away in deserted valleys.

Have fun with these survival games!

Best Clicker Games On Roblox


So what are basically the best clicker games on ROBLOX?
A lot of people remember ROBLOX as the platform for clickbait titles, lobbies and build to survive the "insert subject here" games.

ROBLOX has come a long way since then. A lot of things changed. One of the best changes for clicker-addicts are the various amounts of tycoons. I made a list a while ago with the best Tycoon games, but we are a few months further and it was time for an update. The old list was outdated.

What is the difference between a normal clicker/incremental game and a tycoon  on Roblox?

Tycoons are basically the same as clicker games, but focus more on production. Instead of clicking they usually have a side job in the game that can make you cash for further upgrades.


Are Roblox games free?

Yes all games on Roblox are free, unless mentioned otherwise. Before you can play Roblox games you have to install the Roblox client (on Android, Iphone). Making an account is recommended so you can save your progress in games. (You can play without account but you lose access to features like chat, names, saving and customizing your character).


So let's start on the list of the best clicker games on Roblox!


Number 1
Retail Tycoon (links directly to game)




Still one of my favorites on Roblox is Retail Tycoon. 
You build your own store and manage inventory to make sure to turn the biggest profits. You can hire personnel, buy stock for the inventory, restock, and choose what to place in your store. Want a store dedicated to tires? Self service? Theft prevention army? All possible in this game. 
It gets updated regularly so it is also worth it to come back once in awhile!



Number 2
Lumber Tycoon 2 (links directly to game)




Another one that takes the genre very seriously.
You start with a crappy axe and get the instructions to have the biggest, most productive logging camp. Buy a plot and you are ready to chop some wood. Deliver the wood to the store and start working towards upgrades like a bigger basecamp, cars, machines to automate the chopping and increase the value of the wood. The island offers fun missions like dodging gigantic stones to visit the Lava Trees or searching for an exclusive tree that you can only find by blowing up caves with dynamite. When you get tired of blowing up caves, dodging giant rocks and chopping wood you can build your own summerhouse and furniture it.

(Warning, no idling).



Number 3
The Clone Factory (links directly to game)




This one was a hard choice because there are 2 very good clone games on Roblox. 
But when you compare, this clone tycoon game is the best. In this Tycoon you build up a factory to make your own clones. And of course, the proper thing to do with clones is make them battle.
After you churn out a clone you can equip him with weapons and skills to ravage enemy player clones. Save up and upgrade weapons and perks, and see them move lighting fast to an enemy, or have a massive amount of health. Clones battle automatically, but you can command them in the battlefield if you feel confident about your strategic skills.


Number 4
Theme Park Tycoon 2 (links directly to game)




In Theme Park Tycoon you manage your own theme park. You can add rollercoasters (and customize them) build food stalls and make visitors drink a lot so they have to spend time at our 999$ toilet.
The game is certainly inspired by Rollercoaster Tycoon but it implements the game mechanics in a fitting way for Roblox.


Number 5
Game Dev Tycoon (links directly to game)




Basically a free version of the well known game it is linked to. I do not want to call it a copy, but it gets very close. You start in a small garage, on a crappy computer learning about games, till you have enough to upgrade. You can upgrade into a company, hire staff and boss them around so they keep working, which you can later replace with a manager. It also has minigames with ingame cash rewards to keep the boredom away while you wait for an upgrade.
