On March 27, close to a million people from around the world came together to celebrate the most incredible Roblox experiences and creators at our virtual award ceremony: the 8th Annual Bloxy Awards.
Long before the show premiered, a galaxy’s worth of players, creators, and developers converged on the Bloxys hub’s high-tech spaceport. Visitors roamed an environment out of science-fiction, cast their votes for popular categories, and chased down limited-time virtual merch inside the space-age complex. But all that was just a prelude to the adventure about to unfold.
Once the day of the show came, excited Metaverse tourists poured into the venue to take a journey through popular Roblox experiences including World // Zero, RB Battles, and Adopt Me. The event drew over 26 million visits, and at one time 855,000 players were simultaneously experiencing every action-packed second. In addition to the host JParty, the adventure featured Roblox luminaries Rovi23, TanqR, iamSanna, KreekCraft, and LeahAshe. Furthermore, music fans were blown away by an unbelievable set from British rock duo Royal Blood, taking the virtual stage in stylish avatars custom designed and animated for the performance.
This year’s awards went to:
Best Video Content Creator – KreekCraft
Creator of the Year – MiniToon
Problem Solver – colbert2677
Well done to all of this year’s stars, hosts, and wonderful winners! In addition to the physical trophy, they’ll each receive a virtual version for their avatar to display with pride. No matter where they go in the Metaverse, everyone will know what they achieved.
