As described in the quote, Blockland is first-person building game with online multiplayer, created by Eric "Badspot" Hartman using the Torque Engine. It is not so much a game in and of itself as it is a powerful tool for creating interactive worlds and mini-games, using the in-game building utilities, eventing systems, and a plethora of user-created add-ons. As of December 2013, it is available on Steam. Return To Blockland was shut down in 2014, dealing a huge blow to the community.
This game and it's users provide examples of:
Acceptable Breaks from Reality: Physics is treated more like a suggestion then a law. Bricks tend to only follow this suggestion when coerced with violence. Being clientsided, they can even just be disabled entirely.
Accidental Aiming Skills: Due to the 'traveling' nature of weaponry, many times a player won't so much shoot their target as their target walks into their bullet. What makes this different from outright 'leading' is many times the victim won't even be in their aggressor's line of sight in the first place, often walking out from behind walls or out of cover to be hit by a stray round.
Awesome, but Impractical: The mini-nuke add-on has been known to cause servers to crash, due to it's huge explosion fakekilling many bricks at one time.
Bottomless Magazines: All of the default weapons, and many of the custom ones, have no need to reload, and no ammo system. Certain mods, such as Tier+Tactical, add an appropriate ammo system.
Built With LEGO: All the blocks in Blockland are generic LEGO like bricks; the largest difference being that they have square pegs instead of circular pegs. The first, alpha version of Blockland had LEGO bricks.
Bullet Dodges You: Tier+Tactical's RPG has the uncanny ability to fly AWAY from your target. Experienced players learn to just aim at the ground.
Inversion: Many stereotypically shorter ranged weapons like pistols, shotguns and SMGs are usable at long ranges: in many cases they pick up where actual rifles leave off.
Shout-Out: Return To Blockland (an addon that allows various features such as downloading addons in game, chatting, etc.) features The Infomaniac during loading screens who can give tips.
Standard FPS Guns: It's become a trend as of recently among modders. The basic game comes with a standard pistol, dual pistols and a rocket launcher.
Stuff Blowing Up: In minigames, almost every brick except baseplates can be fakekilled with high powered weaponry like the Rocket Launcher. When "killed", the blocks gain client-side physics, and will respawn in a few seconds.
Sturgeon's Law: What with all the add-ons and everything being created by the players except the default maps. In fact, the better part of the server list is generally clogged up with 'knife DMs', 'army RPs' and generic knock-offs of the 10% of Blockland's servers that are good. The most direct example would be the amount of cityRPG servers that have popped up, since the source was leaked.
Urban Legend of Zelda: The "Renderman", an all-black humanoid with a terrified ASCII face that supposedly appears in the dark. Indeed, some dark maps did have the ASCII terror face appear in random places at random intervals, giving rise to the legend.
Virtual Paper Doll: You can customize your avatar. Some servers use hat mods that give further customization.
