Find a balance between progress and protection, between individual needs and those of the group, succeeding or failing together.
You are marooned on the shores of an infinite blocky world. Explore, mine resources, craft tools and weapons, hunt and make traps. Build a shelter to survive nights and share your worlds online. Possibilities are infinite in this sandbox survival and construction game.
ROBLOX is an online virtual playground and workshop - where kids of all ages can safely interact, create, have fun, and learn.
ROBLOX was founded in 2004 as DynaBlocks and in 2006, it was renamed to the online platform that it is today.
Each player has their own avatar they can customize with colors, clothes, hats, and gear. They can then explore ROBLOX - interacting with others by chatting, playing games, battling, or collaborating on creative projects. Each player is also given their own “place” where they can design and build anything desired - be it a navigable skyscraper, a working helicopter, a giant pinball machine, a multiplayer "Capture the Flag" game, or some other, yet-to-be-dreamed-up object or activity.
By participating and by building cool stuff, ROBLOX members can earn specialty badges as well as ROBLOX dollars ("ROBUX"). In turn, they can shop the online catalog to purchase avatar clothing and accessories.
Kerbal Space Program is a multi-genre game where the players create their own space program.
In KSP, you must build a space-worthy craft, capable of flying its crew out into space, without killing them. At your disposal is a collection of parts, which must be assembled to create a functional ship. Each part has its own function and will affect the way a ship flies (or doesn't). So strap yourself in, and get ready to try some Rocket Science!
Maneuver your spacecraft from planet to planet, to moon, to asteroids; really, there is no unrealistic limit.
The game has different game modes, you can play the Career Mode if you want to expand and manage your own Space Center, taking on missions and researching new technologies. Or you can play Sandbox mode if you're only interested in flying and discovering the Kerbal universe without restrictions. There is even a mid point between these two, Science mode. I also features a fun but fairly accurate physics system, with working orbital mechanics.

After proving itself as a solid tech demo begla was joined at first by Anton “small-jeeper” Kireev and Rasmus “Cervator” Praestholm and a full-fledged game concept was born.
