what?

LEGOS. Remember that time you recreated the battle of Helm's Deep with legos in your room, last year? Remember the giant box of legos you have in your closet? fucking forget them, you've got Blockland now.

Build shit online with other people who really exist and you can show your model penises to.

BLOCKLAND?

Anyway, Blockland's a game where you play with legos with other people. Imagine how much awesome shit you could make if you had infinite legos, yeah. It costs like, 20 bucks or something, but that's a pittance. It's well worth the cost to become a tiny plastic god, ruler of every blocky, square thing you survey.

BLOCKLAND
Just download the demo, try some bidness, and then purchase it, this is the only way it can go.

When you do end up buying the game, make sure you download Return to Blockland, it adds uncountable fantastic things to the game, and neatens up the server lists and such nonsense.
Return to Blockland

If anyone actually reads this truly horrible OP, I'll try and start a server.

    Does the free Blockland still exist, The one that actually looks like lego minifigs and stuff? I know lego stopped it because they are making their own MMO but man was that game fun. I may download the new demo to try it out later today.

    This is pretty much the free blockland, except with more block types, and better support and extra fancy shit.

    Those screens look oddly better than the version I remember from 3 years ago, but I guess that's to be expected. I remember posting pictures of the giant pink penis elevator I made, complete with spooge fountain, in the Blockland forums. Got banhammered pretty quick for that one.

    I would love to play Blockland again, I'm fairly sure I made the last OP, but I just can't see dishing out $20 until the update. It just doesn't seem worth it ATM.

    I have a good idea of who it was, but I don't want to say who it was unless I know for sure.

    I just remember that they had access and drama started when they used their admin powers to delete the current server state or somesuch.

    20$ might seem expensive now, but think back at your Lego collection when you were a kid. How much money was in there? I know that over the years, through Christmas and birthdays, our family got in it for hundreds easy. Easy. Also, LEGO is LEGO. The blocks are blocks, or bricks. This said, calling them Legos should be one of these things that everyone knows is the wrong thing to do but it's more convenient and simple that way so we do it anyway.

    The fact that it's listed on the main page under the update makes me think the effects are entirely client-side. In a source game, you might not see the EXACT same object movement as everyone else, but the general effect is the same.

    I want to throw blocks. I want to build shit and knock it over. I want to do this with people. The OP led me to believe this game is G-Mod with legos, but it seems that's not the case.

    I'm gonna wait for the update and see what people say before I buy these virtual Lego.
