History

Before he helped create Roblox, Baszucki founded the now-defunct company "Knowledge Revolution". Here, Baszucki helped create a physics simulator called "Interactive Physics", which later sold millions of copies and of which Roblox was inspired from.

After Knowledge Revolution was bought by MSC Software for 20 million dollars, he became the Vice President and General Manager of MSC Software, where he was in charge of the desktop simulation division.

Baszucki left MSC Software after a few years and then went on to develop Roblox, along with co-founder Erik Cassel who also held a senior position in the company.
