Roblox introduced on its official Twitter that it eliminated the beloved “oof” sound impact. “Oof” is the sound gamers’ Roblox Avatars make when critically injured or in the event that they die. The soundbite has been a part of some authorized points for the previous few years, and it seems these points have caught up with the game, with Roblox Twitter citing it as a “licensing issue” for the rationale of “oof’s” removing.

The crutch of the authorized points stems from the truth that the “oof” soundbite didn’t originate in Roblox. The first identified use of the soundbite got here from the 2000s game Messiah. However, it wouldn’t be till 2019 when the sound’s creator, Tommy Tallarico, went public with their opinions of Roblox utilizing their sound. Tallarico shared a tweet, saying they weren’t upset with using the sound, however want to be compensated.

People are asking, so simply to make clear: I’m not mad at Roblox & I do not need them to take my “OOF” sound out. It’s an honor that one thing I created 20 years in the past has turn into so iconic & part of popular culture. I simply have to be pretty compensated and I’ve by no means been low-cost. 🙂
