Badspot decided to create a "simpler game" after learning torque's limits. The deployable item system and limits of the torque engine led to planting bricks in a lego-esque world, under the name "Blockland". Badspot got business offers from the Lego company, but never got a phone response, and decided to go into full-scale development for the retail Blockland. To avoid legal trouble, all copyrighted lego content was removed. Eric claims to like the new style, saying it is "More unique". A Jeep vehicle was included in the retail version, possibly an idea sprung from Future War. It is unknown if they handled simularly, however.
