because it's just a notch above more credible and entertaining than someone using an old lego forum as their news blog

from an outsider looking in honestly Brickadia just looks like a graphically polished Blockland just with terrains and interiors. Not to mention the complete lack of modding support that should've been actively addressed during early development and worked up from there.

The idea is neat and the demo footage from what i've seen is pretty impressive, but when and if the game is released will likely just be a small clique of the few players that couldn't let Blockland go and the game will fizzle out from there


erm i don't think this is a yes or no question lol
I mean it is an OR question and the venue can only be either outside or inside. So the answer is obviously 'yes'

Peaceful and Ambient Deep always take me back

I remember him just because my POS software was the only "competition" to Afterblock.

edit: Oh hey, I'm actually mentioned too.

"It was announced prior to Platnium Blockland, which IcyGamma always felt stole
AfterBlock's concepts. Though Tyler66, the developer of Platnium, denied this."

I still stand by that, I had no idea about the existence of AfterBlock when I was working on PBL. It all started when I had the idea make a simple "Blockland Manager" which did simple functions like automatically find the Blockland directory and open folders.

Looking back on it, both were equally terrible for one being worked on a novice Visual Basic programmer and the other being made with the GameMaker library, something which seems a rather odd platform to be developing your application on.

Overall I don't think anyone asked for either AfterBlock or PBL and both were just about useless and completely unnecessary in concept.

Very impressive, well done.

I think one of the biggest issues Blockland has and partially the reason of its decline was its poor play in market competition.

Blockland's hayday I'd say was around 2007 to 2011 give or take, which Blockland had very little market competition when it came to sandbox games. Its only major competitor was Roblox, which in comparison was a behemoth which nonetheless Blockland performed quite well against. But now there are plenty more sandbox games people can choose from, many of which might be capable of doing everything that Blockland can do, but the stuff they can do are done much better than Blockland does. Because of that the game has to compete with the likes of Minecraft, Rust, ARK, etc.

Call it apples and oranges as much as you'd like- but it still doesn't change that they're all sandbox games that Blockland has ultimately lost to.

I think one place that Blockland fell in was how it was played. Blockland, in its most basic state is more like a tool than a game. I think a good way to pull in more players is to make Blockland function more like a game rather than a tool. It's not too often do you see large streamers or Youtubers building a house for 5 hours unless said process involves resource collection or fighting off players and/or monsters that want them and their house/base destroyed.

Just food for thought.

Got the game around the time version 8 was still a thing. Sad to see most people I remember left.

Still gotta see if I can dig up my old laptop hard drive gathering dust in a box in the corner of my bedroom. It should still have the skybox on it.
