How Roblox exploits young developers

As someone who wasn’t that familiar with the wildly popular software platform Roblox, this video by People Make Games was incredibly enlightening. It’s a remarkable piece of journalism that explains how Roblox sells itself as a business opportunity for a whole new generation of developers, while making it almost impossible for games to break out without advertising with Roblox, and paying out in a Roblox-controlled currency with a terrible exchange rate—all while it has become valued at $41 billion.

I highly recommend the video, and the People Make Games Patreon.
