How To Publish A Game On Roblox?

Publishing a game on Roblox is a very effortless task if you know the correct steps to get the job done. Once you are done creating a game, you need to follow these simple steps to publish a game on Roblox:

  1. Click on the “File” option that you will find at the top left corner of Roblox Studio. 
  2. From there, you can choose the “Publish to Roblox” option.
  3. Here comes another important part: fill out the basic information like the game name and description.
  4. Also, select all the devices i.e. Computer, Phone, Tablet, and Console.
  5. Select “Create”. And your game will be successfully published on Roblox.

You can find the published game under the “Games” section of the Roblox Website. Once you select the “Games” option, go to the “Create” section to find the published game.

How To Make The Game Public?

I think you need to understand that when you first publish a game, the game is “Private” by default. This means that only you can access or play the game. I would suggest, you need to turn the privacy settings to “Public,” for other players in Roblox to play your game. Here are the steps to make the game public:

  1. First thing first, log into the Roblox website. 
  2. Once you are in the dashboard, go to the “Create” section and select your game. 
  3. You will notice a gear icon on the right-hand side next to your game name. Click on it.
  4. From there, select the “Configure Game” option.
  5. Now you need to go to the “Privacy” option and select “Public”. 
  6. Click on ‘Save’ to make your game available for other players in Roblox.

How To Solve The Upload Fail Issue?

What I observed the most is while publishing a game on Roblox, you might face the “your upload has failed” issue. I feel the reason for this may be because your place is too big or consists of too many items or scripts in it. To confirm if that is the case, follow these steps:

  1. Save your place first by going to the “File” option in Roblox studio and selecting “Save”.
  2. Now, go to the “File” option again and select “New”.
  3. You will land in a new place. Place a brick there and go to the “File” option.
  4. Select “Publish to Roblox as” after that.
  5. Add the new place over the place you are facing trouble uploading. This should fix the issue.
  6. If the issue persists, it may be because of your current Roblox Studio version. Revert to an older version to completely fix the “Upload fail” issue.
