June 14, 2014

Though we’ve been focused on organizing player-hosted ROBLOX booths at Maker Faires this spring, next Saturday we’re holding the official 2014 BLOXcon right here at ROBLOX HQ, streaming live so everyone can attend! This is your chance to experience BLOXcon from wherever you live — ask questions during live Q&A sessions, game with your favorite ROBLOX staff members, see exclusive demos of cool upcoming features, participate in gameplay streaming challenges, see the announcements of this year’s BLOXY and Hall of Fame winners, and much more (Hackathon! And did someone say Android?)!

It’s going to be six hours — or more — of livestreaming goodness, all coming to you live at starting Saturday, June 21st at 9 a.m. Pacific Time (that’s 11 a.m. CT, 12 p.m. ET, and 5 p.m. GMT). Trust us, you won’t want to miss it.

If you’re a fan of our streaming content (we’re assuming you are; we just passed 46 million Twitch views), you know that we like to broadcast off the cuff. BLOXcon 2014 will feature a lot of unexpected moments, though we have a good idea of the day’s schedule. We plan to be live for roughly six hours. If you can’t be there for the entire event, keep in mind that it will be archived on our Twitch and YouTube channels. We encourage you to tune in when you have the time to watch afterward. Here’s a rough overview of how the day will unfold:

  • Welcome!
