The game is an open-world life simulation game that takes place in the fictional city of Bloxburg. Players must take care of their character by fulfilling moods. Players can build and customize their house to whatever they want. Players can also achieve skills, work for money, and explore the large city.
Players can build their own houses and other buildings on their house plots. To build, players can interact with the mailbox or the House button to enter Build Mode.
Players can build walls, roofs, floors, pools, mailboxes, trash, basements, etc. Players can also decorate their house with counters, electronics, beds, comfortable furniture, kitchen appliances, and other decorations.
Without any building gamepasses, players can build on a 1-story, 30x30 plot. The Multiple Floors pass allows players to build up to 5 floors high. The Large Plot allows players to expand their building area to a 60x60 plot. The Advanced Placing gamepass allows players to build items without collision, while the Basement gamepass allows them to build underground.
There are currently 12 jobs in the game, and each job gives a varying amount of money. Upon completing a certain number of tasks, the player will get promoted and start earning more money per task (If bought the Excellent Employee game pass, the earnings will be doubled and there will be more promotions). In order to receive the money, the player has to end their shift, after which they will receive their paycheck.
Cashier for Bloxy Burgers
As a cashier, the player takes orders from NPCs. The customers will line up in a straight line and tell the cashier what they would like to order. The cashier will then look at the register and select the items that the customer ordered. If the player gives the customer the correct order, they will find a place to sit down and eat their food, they will then leave.
If the player inputs the wrong order, the customer will get angry and give negative feedback through phrases such as "That's not what I ordered!". They will then proceed to walk out of the restaurant. If the player waits too long to input the customer's order, the customer will exit the restaurant.
Fisherman for The Fishing Hut
Upon starting the job, the player will automatically be given a fishing rod to cast at the shoreline. The rod can only be used at the shoreline, or else it won't work. When the player casts the fishing rod into the water, after a few minutes it should start to sink into the water. This indicates that a fish is tugging at the bait, and if the line is reeled while this is happening, the player will obtain the fish and earn money.
Seller for Ben's Ice Cream
This job is similar to the Cashier job at Bloxy Burgers. The customer will walk up to the ice-cream cone-shaped building and give their order. Ben's Ice Cream has three flavors of ice cream: strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla. It also has three available toppings: sprinkles, chocolate sauce, and cookie dough. NPCs ask for two scoops of ice cream, each consisting of one of the three flavors, and sometimes orders a topping for it.
If the player gives the customer the correct order, they will walk away while eating it. If the player gives them the wrong order, they will announce this by giving negative feedback; something along the lines of "This isn't what I ordered!", and will walk away from the stand. If the player waits too long to give the customer the order, the customer will leave the stand without saying anything.
Stocker for Bloxburg Fresh Food
When working as a stocker, players will grab crates from the back of the store and restock empty or near-empty shelves.
If a shelf is low on items, the player will restock with a crate from the back of the store. If a shelf is full, a player will not be able to restock it until it is near-empty. When a shelf is restocked, a timer will start ticking and when the timer runs out, the shelves deplete themselves.
Janitor for Green Clean
As a Janitor for Green Clean, the player will automatically be given a broomstick. With this broomstick, they can clean up the trash on the ground and graffiti on buildings.
Currently, three types of trash piles exist and two different animations for these. There are spilled sodas, trash heaps, and graffiti. Once a player cleans up these messes, another will automatically spawn itself. Trash only appears in front of the store, and around Bloxy Burgers and Stylez Hair Studio.
Trash heaps are generated randomly, for example, spill sodas are in all different colors and graffiti sometimes displays random inscriptions, some of which relate to the game and its developers. Certain graffitis depict the name “Coeptus”, which refers to Bloxburg's creator.
Upon entering the Green Clean building, a player is able to talk to Glen the Janitor but he does not say much. At the back of the building, there are shelves with cleaning supplies.
Woodcutter for Lovely Lumber
When working for Lovely Lumber, a player cuts trees down.
Trees grow to the left of the Lumber Cut building, and they can be chopped down by the player. If the player is standing next to the tree, they must click the “Chop” button to hit the tree with the axe. Usually, it takes around 10 hits for the tree to fall over. Once the tree collapses, the player earns money.
Lovely Lumber is run by a lumberjack named Jack Lumber. If talked to him, he explains that everyone in his family is named Jack, which his family believes to be the best name.
Cashier for Bloxburg Fresh Food
When working for Bloxburg Fresh Food, the player scans items and bag items for the customer.
Upon starting work, the player gets to choose which register to work at, although they are all the same. Customers walk in single file lines up to the register and proceed to place their items onto the conveyor belt. The player has to scan each item individually but to earn money they have to go and get bags, and then place them on the left side of the register. The maximum amount of bags the player can use is 8. Customers tend to use 2-4 bags at a time in comparison. When the player presses "Done!", the bags disappear.
Once the player uses 50 bags, they will run out. When this occurs, instead of the register displaying "Done!", it will display "You're out of bags! Get more in the back warehouse!". Outside of the back room of the store, there are stacked crates that are labeled "BAGS". Once the player has clicked on the crates, they will receive more bags. When the player re-enters the aisle, they will now be given an option to "refill" the bags.
Pizza Baker for Pizza Planet
As a pizza baker at Pizza Planet, the player will cook specific pizzas as a chef.
The kitchen is located in the back area of Pizza Planet. Here are 4 different workstations. Located on a pad to the right, the ordered pizza is displayed which the player can create. Once the pizza is made, it gets carried out onto a conveyor belt and goes into the oven. There are crates located on either side of the kitchen that is used to refill the work areas once they run out of ingredients.
When the player clicks "E" or interacts with the station on the right, they're able to place the dough. From here, a menu pops up that displays toppings, and the ingredients that are needed to make the pizza. There are three toppings; vegetables, pepperoni, and ham. The player must make the pizza that is shown on the pad, or else an error noise will play and the order will be canceled, after which a few seconds later a new order then pops up. If the player succeeds at making the ordered pizza, a victorious jingle will play and a new order will pop up on the pad.
Delivery Person for Pizza Planet
Upon entering the job, the player will be spawned in a back room of Pizza Planet, where there is a conveyor belt which receives pizzas. Once the player grabs a pizza, they have to exit the building and get onto a Pizza Planet moped. The player must not get into a personal vehicle, or else the job will be canceled. Once on the moped, a yellow arrow will point in a direction. If the player then follows the arrow, they will meet a randomized NPC. The player delivers the pizza to them by pressing "E" next to the NPC, or clicking on the NPC, and clicking "Deliver Pizza". The customers usually appear on the side of the road.
Pizza Delivery is the most well-paid job, but it is also is the most time-consuming.
Hairdresser for Stylez Hair Studio
Upon entering the job, the player has to stand behind a chair. A customer will then proceed to sit down in the chair.
The mirror in front of the chair shows the customer, along with four different arrows. The first two arrows scroll through the selection of hair, while the other two lets the player select hair color. Similar to the other jobs, the customer will state which hairstyle and color they want. The player then has to style the NPC with their desired color and/or style.
If the player gives them the right style, they will earn money and the customer will leave happy. If the player gives the customer the incorrect style, an error noise will play and the customer will exit the building. If the player waits too long to style someone, the customer will stand up and leave the studio without saying anything.
Mechanic for Mike's Motors
When working as a mechanic for Mike's Motors, the player will be doing three things; painting, refilling and replacing tires on mopeds/motorbikes.
Upon entering the job, a customer will drive their vehicle onto the platform, and then say what they would like done with the vehicle. This can either be an oil change, a paint-job, or a tire replacement.
There are four types of paint colors; green, purple, black and red. To paint a car, the player must grab a paint roller located on a table. If the customer requests an oil change, then the player has to pick up oil can situate on another table. There are three types of wheels, which are located on a rock on the left side of the room; Moped, Bloxster, and Classic tires. If the customer requests a tire change, then the front and back tires must be changed separately.
Miner for Bloxburg Mine
When working for Bloxburg mines, players mine different ores. Dependent on the ore and the job level is how much money a player gets. If TNT is mined, and the player is too close to it, it will explode, and then the player will respawn and automatically end their shift. Some people may compare it to the game, Minecraft.
- The higher the player's mood is, the more money they earn. For example: If someone was earning $996 per delivery when their in-game mood is very low, they could earn $1200 if their mood is very good.
- Pizza Delivery is the current highest paying job in Bloxburg, but the customers will spawn at random parts of the map. A player may get lucky and only have to drive to the street opposite Pizza Planet, or they may have to travel to a corner of the map, for example, the far side of Bloxy Acres, which is a neighborhood where players can spawn their houses.
- Remember to stay on roads while delivering pizzas, as some players can block others from their plot (or enter Build Mode) and end up wasting more time.

- Moods overlap, the one shown is the most recently triggered mood.
- Having higher motives increases pay during work.

Two other skills are shown: Crafting and Programming, but these skills will probably be later implemented into the game.
- Each skill, once maxed out to level 10, rewards the player with a trophy that can be placed or sold.
Emotes are small actions the player can perform. The emotes menu can be brought up by clicking the player, then clicking emotes. Some emotes increase Fun but decrease Energy. Players can also add emotes from their Roblox avatar by customizing their character.
