Egg Hunt 2019 Opportunity

Hey Developers,

As Roblox continues to grow, we want to offer more opportunities to show off your skills and experiences on the platform. In 2019, we are going to incorporate new and engaging approaches to events as well as bringing back some old methods. Our goal is to make these events more developer driven, and it all starts with Egg Hunt.

Egg Hunt 2019 is going to be a massive scavenger hunt across 40-50 games with one custom hub to connect them all! The hub will have multiple teleporters that will bring players to the different event games depending on the time of day. We are looking to highlight the community as a whole using these 40-50 games. We are interested in smaller experiences and large, popular games alike. The selected games will be tasked with creating their own custom quest, to which Roblox will hook up an egg to be rewarded when a player completes it. In order to improve the chance of getting your game selected, you should make sure to note if your game is cross-platform and/or localized. The games that are selected will be able to suggest egg designs, but we cannot guarantee that those designs will be used.

There is no deadline to apply as the Hub Team or one of the 40-50 participating games. We will review the applications as they come in, so the earlier you apply the better chance of being selected.

Working on the Egg Hunt was a blessing, and I highly recommend it, this is one of the best chances you get.

@2blox2quit do we have to apply with our teams or can we apply individually?

Yep go ahead and apply with a game that is not released. Just make sure the game is paid access so we can view it.

What if my game is currently group-only? Will you join the group to view it? (p.s You will get an exclusive role if you do <3)

This looks great. Some things I’d like to be elaborated on however:

How are you planning to implement this feature? Likely this could be a massive problem for those that aren’t free all day, everyday, or those that are in different time zones.

Secondly,

I’m interested to know why you chose this approach after the massive disapproval the community has given towards this style of event. It is clear to me through this quote that none of the considerations of the community have been applied to the upcoming egg hunt. Could you elaborate as to why this is the case?

Maybe I am just miss-informed, nevertheless, I’m sure others have also got the same or similar questions.

:slight_smile:

How long will this application be open? I’m releasing my game in 1-2 weeks and I’d like to apply after I see if it succeeds or not.

The community tends to disapprove events that only involve 2-3 places. Because this will have 40-50 places, I think players will still enjoy it and hopefully find it to be a cool idea. shrugs

Yes, we can join the group to view it.

Seems like a great opportunity for developers, but in a sense of what the community wants, it may be a bit damaging. I’m looking back at 2015 and seeing how much of a disappointment that egg hunt was, and how similar this one seems to it. How will this one be different, disregarding the hub and the egg quantity in each game?

I personally think this is pretty promising though; that’s a lot of games that’ll be featured!
