Anyone can now publish on Xbox One thanks to ROBLOX

Two new games launched today on the Xbox One, ROBLOX and Sparkle 2.

Sparkle 2 is a sequel to, you guessed it, the original Sparkle game. Gameplay consists of over 90 levels that must be solved through the use of orb slinging and puzzle solving. Here’s the official description:

A long time ago five enchanted keys were created. The keys were scattered around mysterious lands and still remain undiscovered. Many have come to find them, and so far all have failed. Will you find the keys and unlock the secrets, or will you join the endless ranks of souls forever trapped within these lands?

ROBLOX isn’t so much a game but an entire new platform for publishing games on the Xbox One. Users can create their own videogames in the Lua scripting language and essentially distribute them from within ROBLOX on PC, and now, on Xbox One assuming they’ve implemented proper controller support. ROBLOX appears to be limited to select Xbox regions so it may not appear for certain users. We reported on ROBLOX coming to the Xbox One previously and were very curious to see how the platform grows with a potentially larger audience. Here’s the official description:

Community Created Gaming. Limitless Possibilities. All the games on ROBLOX are created by gamers like you! Play solo or with friends in a variety of indie games exclusive to ROBLOX. Find Strategy, Platformer, Role Playing, Tycoon, Shooter, Survival games and more! ROBLOX is free to play, although you can buy ROBUX, our virtual currency, to upgrade the look of your ROBLOX avatar or to get optional in-game power-ups. Xbox Live Gold and an internet connection of 192 Kbps or higher required to play.
