The program provides North Sea Games with access to talks, consultation, and round tables on game design and best platform practices tailored for the Roblox platform as well as development funding towards their unannounced Roblox experience, currently in development.
The program lasts for three months, beginning in February 2022, and concludes with a presentation to the entire Roblox Company.
The Roblox Corporation’s creator-controlled platform is well known for its extensive library of user generated content and its massive user base, boasting a daily active user count of 43.2 million as of Q3 2021. It is also one of the global companies pioneering the development of the “Metaverse”.
North Sea Games was founded in late 2019 as part of Abertay’s Dare Academy program, which saw it produce a game project and present it to the public at EGX 2019 in London. Following the graduation of its members in 2021, North Sea Games pivoted towards developing for the Roblox platform.
Brentton White, Co-Founder and CEO of North Sea Games says: “To be validated for our efforts by one of the industry’s largest players is very humbling, especially given their leading role in the emerging metaverse that dominates today’s gaming discussions. The opportunity to work with and learn from the teams at Roblox on our first commercial project is unlike anything we ever expected possible when this company began.”
