You may have recently noticed small changes we have made to the website and mobile app. We removed most of the drop shadows and added an intermediary background color change to avatar profiles. As a company we have been quietly working to reimagine what Roblox could look like next quarter, next year, in 5 years, and so on.
From this work we have put together a plan to make incremental and small steps towards that long-term vision. The changes to the game tiles are another one of those steps.
Some of you may have noticed that we recently rolled out a change to the design of the game tile across all platforms. This change provides more room for your title, as well as providing clear and concise information to your players. There is currently a limited rollout A/B test running to ensure we are not negatively impacting the CTR on your games.
What these changes boil down to are the fundamental truths of our design philosophy. We believe in distilling elements down to their simplest form and making the most important pieces matter. I won’t give away too much to keep you on your toes, but stay tuned as more changes are on the way.
Q: I noticed you are rounding up the number now, am I still going to be able to view accurate play counts for my game?
A: This is still viewable in Dev Stats and you are still able to see the total concurrent count on the Game Details page.
Q: Where did the creator name go?
A: The creator name has officially been removed from the hover state on the game tiles. We did this to make it easier for players to find the best games we have to offer by refocusing on what is most important to them. Your group and username will always be viewable on the Game Details page.
Q: I don’t see this change! When will this be rolled out to 100% of users?
A: Assuming everything goes well with this test, we should be at 100% by the end of this month (September).
Huge thanks to the design team and engineers that made this happen! Let us know what you think below!
