Hey there, developers!
We’re excited to announce a new content series called Level Up!
This program is an extension of our Roblox Developers Conference (RDC) and will provide additional game design education events throughout the year. In the Level Up series, you will learn game design best practices from some of the most successful developers on Roblox and members of Roblox’s own Game Insights team!
Each quarter, the Game Insights Team will host roundtable discussions, have hands-on workshops, share data & presentations, and hold Q&A sessions to help level up your game design skills
How to Participate
We’ve put together a page on Bevy where you can sign up to receive updates for all things Level Up. (btw, while you’re over there, be sure to check out some of our community events!)
Our First Level Up Event
The first Level Up is about Game Expansions and features the RedManta team!
We’ll be chatting about:
- Expansions and their benefits
- Managing expansion production
- Balancing expansions
- And supporting expansion features
Participation in the live event is extremely limited and invite-only right now, but we will be sharing recordings of all discussions, presentations, and even workshop materials!
Stay tuned for another update with info on how to watch the event near the end of March. We will share info here and via the Bevy chapter page.
Meet Our Game Insights Team!
Hey, developers! It’s Dan, or @Dspav on Roblox. I have been working in games for 10 years and specialize in systems and economy design. Over the past couple of years I’ve given design consultations for Roblox developers on experiences like Adopt Me!, Work at a Pizza Place, World: Zero, Bad Business and Dragon Adventures.
In my down time, I enjoy cooking and playing MtG.
Looking forward to working with you when I host our first Level Up event on game expansions!
Hi, my name is Erin, but you may know me better as @BreakfastCandy! I’ve been in the industry for about 10 years working on mostly free-to-play games at studios like Warner Bros., Zynga, and now Roblox. My main focus is on content design, UI/UX, and first-time user experience. So far, I’ve had a chance to work with the teams for Build a Boat for Treasure and Super Striker League and I’m excited to help even more studios improve their experiences!
When I’m not working, I like to play games, write, draw, and even sculpt. I also have an adorable Shih Tzu named Ginger
I really hope you join us for all of our Level Up events this year!
Hey, I’m Kael, also known as @dyno_smore on Roblox. Before joining the Game Insights team at Roblox, I worked at game studios in the US, Canada, and even Norway! I have about 9 years of experience and have contributed to games for Activision, Sony, and Animal Planet, to name a few.
I primarily focus on developing game systems, meta-game, and feature design. I just recently worked with Badimo on Jailbreak and I’m excited to meet even more developers at RDC and our Level Up events!
If I have time after work and after I hang out with my kids, I usually play video games or just relax and read old books.
Tune In Next Month
Let us know if you have any questions! If not, we’ll see you again in a few weeks!
