from what i remember the source code is not something you can just make public, its private and costs money

either badspot tried, or someone similar tried and the guys at the top said no to making it public

While the old engine is not public, it is also abandoned since a decade and has a newer version which already is open source.

I'm sure badspot could figure out an agreement with them that lets him make it available to (certain? all?) people from the community, for the purpose of improving blockland.

Badspot would still be selling the game. Getting community members involved in development does not necessarily mean turning it into a free for all open source project, that wouldn't be helpful with the small player numbers.

what if one of the developers goes rouge and releases the source, the game is sort of forgeted
actually maybe not because of blockland's key system but it is still a bit forgeted

trust no one not even yourself

Then they would be responsible for damages caused by it. That's really the last thing you have to worry about, you can start by not hiring trolls.
