Karl Jacobs is making significant Roblox-related progress. The gamer, Twitch celebrity, and MrBeast collaborator is collaborating with Misfits Gaming and KreekCraft to build Pixel Playground, a Roblox game development company.
Jacobs and KreekCraft (real name: Forrest Waldron) will be in charge of Pixel Playground as Co-Founder and Creative Director, respectively. Misfits will provide the two developers with the necessary resources and operational assistance to execute their Roblox game concepts.
Jacobs and Waldron also intend to cooperate with other notable Roblox characters. Despite the fact that many children enjoy playing in the virtual sandbox, Pixel Playground’s Roblox projects are designed for users over the age of 13. By increasing the average age of its community, the new studio seeks to draw the attention of marketers.

Jacobs’ early streams frequently incorporated Roblox, but he is most renowned for his exploits in Minecraft environments. He is well-known on the famed Dream SMP server, where he gained vital sandbox game design knowledge.
Waldron, on the other hand, has an abundance of Roblox knowledge. He is one of the most popular producers in the game’s community, with some of his YouTube videos reaching over six million views. “When I was a youngster, it has been my desire to create video games.
Waldron stated in a statement, “I never imagined I’d get the chance to assist manage a whole gaming studio.” “I’m thrilled to collaborate with Karl, Ben, and the Pixel Playground team to develop creative and entertaining games and content! ”
Pixel Playground enters the Roblox realm during a challenging moment. As the game continues to expand to other platforms, it faces fierce competition from Epic Games’ Fortnite, which has just introduced its own comprehensive development platform. The Fortnite Unreal Editor will offer one of the most advantageous revenue-sharing arrangements in the gaming industry, which might attract Roblox-using game developers.
Yet for the time being, Roblox remains the king of sandbox-style game production, which is great news for Jacobs, Waldron, and the Misfits crew. Due to Jacobs’s leadership, Misfits is expanding beyond its core business. Jacobs just joined the esports organization as a Co-Owner. Ben Spoont, the CEO and founder of Misfits, asserts that after the first games are released, the outcome will be “truly collaborative and creator-led.”
