We’re always looking for fun and rewarding ways to show how much we value your dedication to the platform and celebrate your successes. Now, we’re pleased to present a new program that aims to do just that: Developer Awards! This is a program driven by data and designed to reward developers for reaching exciting, meritorious milestones per game.
There are three different types of Developer Awards. We’re still finalizing details on the other two categories, so we’re introducing the program in phases, starting with Phase 1: Swag Bags!
The swag bag itself is a stylish Roblox-branded backpack full of goodies*, of course! The bag is awarded to developers who achieve 40M+ lifetime Robux!
*Contents of the swag bag are still in production and mockups shown are not final.
We can’t wait to show you what else we have in store for the Developer Awards!
Q: How will Roblox choose which games get the items?
A: The system is fully automated. If you meet the criteria you will get the awards.
Q: Are these awards retroactive?
A: The awards are based on a 12-month rolling period starting from January 2020.
Q: How can I see my progress towards these goals?
A: For Lifetime Robux, developers will need to add up the stats themselves - this data is only available since 2018, so old games unfortunately won’t be calculable.
Q: How does Roblox know where I live?!
A: The Developer Relations team is all-knowing! Just kidding - you will need to fill out a form if your game qualifies for swag bag.
Q: How will DevRel reach out?
A: You will be receiving an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to the aforementioned form.
Q: What makes me eligible for the Developer Awards?
Q: Will the future Phases of Developer Awards be based on Lifetime Robux earned, too?
A: No, the future Phases will be awarded based on different metrics.
Q: I’m pretty sure I’m eligible for the swag bag, but I haven’t received an email! When can I expect to receive the form?
A: The forms for the swag bags are going out in waves. If you haven’t yet received your email, hang tight. If you qualify, you’ll be in one of the future waves.
Q: Does this award count towards UGC?
A: No, this award is for a game only and not UGC.
