3 ways Roblox Assistant helps creators build their games


Gaming platform Roblox aims to bring generative AI to creators with Roblox Assistant.

At the Roblox Developers Conference (RDC) 2023, Roblox unveiled a new AI assistant that creatives can interact with via a chat interface to help them create new game experiences. Roblox started as a video game, evolved into a gaming platform, and now has more than 65 million daily active users, surpassing even Fortnite.

Both platforms focus their strategy on user-created gaming experiences. The use of generative AI to create new digital worlds and experiences is seen as central by Roblox, Epic Games, but also Meta, and Nvidia.

Virtual environments and asset placement using simple prompts

The AI assistant is expected to use simple prompts to create virtual environments and place assets.



In a demo, the company showed how the assistant responds to the prompt “I want to make a game set in ancient ruins” by placing some appropriate assets in the game world. With further instructions, the assistant places a campfire with a chair next to it as a spawn point for players, as well as some nearby trees to chop down.


Assets can be sourced from the Roblox Marketplace or from your own library.

Support for programming and development questions

In addition to placing assets, the Roblox AI Assistant will also help with programming, similar to ChatGPT – but specialized for Roblox. In addition to generating code for simple game mechanics, it will also answer development questions about Roblox.

This should make it easier for creative people to get started – and further establish Roblox as a gaming platform.
