In this tutorial, UristMcSparks guides you through the basic concepts and tools of scripting and coding in ROBLOX with Lua. You’ll learn how to write a basic script, define variables, and create functions. These are the foundations to eventually making your own game!
As part of Code.org’s global Hour of Code event, we are publishing a series of introductory scripting tutorials that you can follow at home to learn how to create basic elements of a platformer (or “obby”) game of your own.
