Yes, that is true. Blockland when it was still a beta software was shown on Tech TV which later got changed to G4 and then later canceled, in 2005.
Now they are doing a reboot with Adam Sessler and Kevin P. bringing back G4 in 2021, and I checked to see there actually have STILL been Blockland updates in the past year and a 75% Steam sale already happened.
What is really hypocritical is this, Minecraft is the most popular building game, bought by a AAA studio, and 10 years later Minecraft is still 5 years BEHIND the technology of Blockland. And even with the insane sales and NASA-level budget of team working on the game, the technology of one guy's code for Blockland is still the best code, and nobody else has made a better multiplayer building game since it was finished out.
Hello Badspot and commenters,
In response to that I have to give the opinion there is really not a need to update Blockland. It is disrespectful to not appreciate the game and demand Badspot to transfer ownership or update the game.
Blockland was originally aired on TV 2005, it's 2021. The game already got patched into a whole different game since. And it has the best features and GUI/Modding engine out of any of the 3D building games out there, basically allowing you to use Blockland as an engine to make a customized game.
Well, it is rude to demand Badspot update it (in an unrelated chat section) because the game is already done, it's a classic. That is like when they went back and made all of those CGI edits in Star Wars Episode 4, it only made the movie less nostalgic.
What would really help the game now is some advertising/incentives to get a bigger user base with more worlds hosted to explore and possibly attract more paid users, Epic Games Store and some others are doing this as rolling free key giveaways to get bigger user bases for PVP and multiplayer gameplay and it gets people talking about the game.
