A search for “now.gg Roblox” on the homepage returns a popup, which asks if you want to play a game with now.gg’s login provided. Clicking “YES” allows you to log into one of many Roblox games, such as Dust Off (shown in the screenshot below).
In this blog post, I wanted to show how easy it is to log into any Roblox game with now.gg Roblox. To make this post more digestible, I will focus on one game (Dust Off) and show how to log into it.
If you’ve never played Roblox games before, a bit of background is needed. Roblox is an online gaming platform in which people can build their own games and share them with others, similar to the popular Minecraft. It has millions of active players everyday and millions of users play online games daily on the website.
To play Roblox games, you need to head over to the website and create an account. The process is very simple.
If you scroll down on the home page, you can see some games listed with icons for “Play Now” or “Play in Flash”. If a game has an icon that says “play now”, then it’s playable online (like Minecraft).
Click on the Play Now button and this associates your Roblox account with now.gg. If you want to play a game that isn’t currently on the website, you can create a new game account with now.gg on the site.
Once you are logged in to now.gg Roblox, click on the “Play Now” button again. This will bring up this screen:
This screen allows you to choose between Flash and HTML5 games. If it’s not in flash, it’s safe to assume that it will be played online through HTML5 (meaning it probably won’t be an ad for now.gg).
On the left side of the screen, select “HTML5”. On the right side of the screen, you will see a list of Roblox games. The game I was going to play was Dust Off so I selected it on this list and then clicked “Play Now” at the bottom.
This brought up another popup asking me to log in with my now.gg account. Notice how this popup has a transparent background, so the page beneath it is visible. I already logged in to Dust Off with my account so I left “ROBLOX” selected, and clicked “Play”.
If a game isn’t pre-loaded on the website, it usually means that Roblox needs to compile your game first before you can play it. This can take a few seconds, depending on how big the game is. In my case, Dust Off appeared but there was no sound and no controls. To fix this, click anywhere on the screen and it will bring up the controller interface.
The controllers themselves are made by Now Gaming and they provide a variety of other games playable on now.gg Roblox. Most of these games are “advergames” which means they are created by advertisers to promote their products or services, like how McDonalds used to create advergames for their Happy Meal toys. That’s why almost all Roblox games you see advertised on TV, radio or magazine ads feature a now.gg logo.
When you click on a game, it will automatically bring up the controller interface. If you click the “Play” button in this interface, the game will start and play through to the end just like clicking on any other video game. The only difference is that while watching a video game at home, you are probably sitting there playing it. With a now.gg game, you are just sitting there reading or browsing through the website without having to actually play the game.
Eventually, I got to the end of Dust-Off (which took about 30 seconds) and it was time to leave. I clicked “Leave” and that was it! All I needed was my phone’s internet connection and my keyboard. To me, this is much better than watching ads every other minute while playing games at home thanks to now.gg!
