About

Level Up

Learn game design best practices from some of the most successful developers on Roblox, alongside members of Roblox's own Game Insights design team! The Level Up program hosts educational game design events throughout the year. Join us for live presentations, Q&A, and practical workshops to level up your design skills.

Roundtable

Roundtable events feature a discussion between a top developer and a Roblox Game Insights designer. Together, they will discuss game design best practices and how implementing those practice impacted their game, its metrics, and their players. Attendees are invited to ask questions in a live Q&A throughout the roundtable.

Workshop

In Workshop events, a Roblox Game Insights designer will dive into the details of implementing design best practices and provide practical materials including templates and spreadsheets. Attendees are invited to ask questions in a live Q&A throughout the workshop. By the end, you'll have the knowledge and skills to take your game to the next level!

About The Game Design Team

Dan Spaventa: https://www.roblox.com/users/974741740/profile

Hey, developers! It’s Dan, or Dspav on Roblox. I have been working in games for 10 years and specialize in systems and economy design. Over the past couple of years I’ve given design consultations for Roblox developers on experiences like Adopt Me!, Work at a Pizza Place, World: Zero, and Dragon Adventures.

In my down time, I enjoy cooking and playing MtG.

Erin Jennings: https://www.roblox.com/users/1624225939/profile

Hi, my name is Erin, but you may know me better as BreakfastCandy! I’ve been in the industry for about 10 years working on mostly free-to-play games at studios like Warner Bros., Zynga, and now Roblox. My main focus is on content design, UI/UX, and first-time user experience. So far, I’ve had a chance to work with the teams for Build a Boat for Treasure and Super Striker League and I’m excited to help even more studios improve their experiences!

When I’m not working, I like to play games, write, draw, and even sculpt. I also have an adorable Shih Tzu named Ginger.

I really hope you join us for all of our Level Up events!

Kael O'Malley: https://www.roblox.com/users/1816180481/profile

Hey, I’m Kael, also known as dyno_smore on Roblox. Before joining the Game Insights team at Roblox, I worked at game studios in the US, Canada, and even Norway! I have about 9 years of experience and have contributed to games for Activision, Sony, and Animal Planet, to name a few.

I primarily focus on developing game systems, meta-game, and feature design. I just recently worked with Badimo on Jailbreak and I’m excited to meet even more developers at RDC!

If I have time after work and after I hang out with my kids, I usually play video games or just relax and read old books.

Hi Everyone! I’m Ali also known as Six5Creedmore on Roblox. I’m a Producer on Game Insights and super excited to meet you all. I started my career leading monetization for mobile games and then became a producer on AAA titles at studios like 2K and Ubisoft. My role as Producer will be to teach and assist with production best practices.

When I’m not working, I’m spending time with my two kiddos. I love playing games and am always open to trying new Roblox experiences.

Hope I get the chance to meet you all at RDC or at one of our Level Up events!
