For the past few days, I spent time making a website to address an issue of game discovery on Roblox. I feel that it is very hard right now to find games made by smaller developers, and it is not something I see Roblox is focusing to improve on.
So, I made the Roblox Curated Discover Page to temporarily solve this issue.
It might be a mouthful to say, but it describes everything it does. The site will feature games under 1k concurrent players on Roblox that is approved through a team of play testers with years of experience…
Actually, I will be the only one approving each game. But, that still means your won’t be seeing any kind of botted, copied, or abandoned games that usually end up on the top of the search page!
Each game on the RCDP can be accessible through tags, or a word that describes that game. (which is seen on virtually every game distribution platform out there, but not on Roblox)
If you are interested in adding your game, you can fill this form out! There are requirements and guidelines when submitting your game, so there is no guarantee it will be added.
I also set up a small Discord server for updates on when games are added!
That’s all! If you have any questions, suggestions, feedback or find any typos on the website, feel free to reply here!
This site is open source, and you can view it on GitHub. It’s not too great, but it gets the job done. Just be aware, if there any websites that look exactly like mine, but include any kind of inappropriate content, it is not from me!
Frequently Asked Questions
When will you add new games to the RCDP?
I will be accepting and adding games all this month to fill the site up, but starting August I will accept games, but only add them all to the site at the start of next month. So, games will be added on a monthly basis.
I just read the requirements, and it says that you can only add one game on the RCDP. Why?
I want a level playing field for all developers who want to submit their game to the site. If I allow multiple games to be added from one developer or team, you will see their game more, which is unfair. I don’t want this to become a platform for another platform. Roblox and social media should be the only platforms you need. The RCDP should only act as a bridge to discover smaller developers.
Do you use the Roblox Web API for the RCDP?
Unfortunately no, I forgot how to use APIs on a website, but it is something I’ll be looking into to make it easier for me to add games.
How do you add games on the RCDP?
It isn’t pretty, but I have a file where all I store all the games, and uses a global function from the main script to create the game object. I manually have to type in all the game’s information.
createGame("Title","Developer","GameID",["tag1","tag2","tag3"]); createGame("Title","Developer","GameID",["tag1","tag2","tag3"]); createGame("Title","Developer","GameID",["tag1","tag2","tag3"]);
This site is great and all, but who else would see this website other than the developers here on the DevForum?
I’m glad you potentially asked, but I have no idea. You could help by sharing this to your friends or on social media to hopefully get more people to submit their games as well as find new games to play! I wouldn’t mind if there were no games added to the site.
I want this site to at least catch the attention of Roblox, and that there needs to be something done about game discovery and supporting smaller developer on the platform, or pressure them to announce that they are planning to doing something about it.
