Specsavers Obby

Agencies: Dubit Tangerine


Specsavers has unveiled the ‘Specsavers Obby’, a new branded obstacle course game and virtual merchandise giveaway on Roblox, marking the high-street retailer’s commitment to educating younger generations and continued steps into the gaming space.

A UK market first for the optical industry, the partnership is in collaboration with pioneering game development studio Dubit and Specsavers’ social media agency, Tangerine, and has brought the iconic Specsavers brand into three highly popular Roblox games: Super Fun Obby, Chill Obby, and Ultimate Easy Obby, all developed by games production group, Banana Studios.

As part of the five Specsavers’ levels, players will be able to interact with branded virtual items from the retailer and have the chance to collect 10 limited edition Specsavers’ themed UGC (User-Generated Content) items, including glasses, hearing aids and even a Snellen Chart sandwich board, which players can opt to equip their avatars with throughout the Roblox universe.

Within the first five days of being live, the game has proven to be incredibly popular, garnering over 220,000 UK plays, with over 50,000 UGC items redeemed in the first ten hours of the Specsavers Obby hitting the platform.

The unique obby features numerous eye and ear-based obstacles for players to overcome, question gates relating to health messaging and advice from in-game optometrists. Players also have to navigate a maze using hearing cues to help them navigate to the exit.

Recognising Roblox’s vast potential and appeal, Specsavers aims to expand its reach and connect with a demographic increasingly drawn to digital entertainment and engagement.

With over 355 million monthly active users, Roblox represents a pivotal market for Specsavers to interact with younger audiences, including Gen Alpha, engaging with them in an immersive and interactive manner.
