The blb file extension is also used for some sort of game resource file format.

"Blorb" is a format, devised by Andrew Plotkin, which embeds all needed resources for a given story into one single "blorb file". Indeed, it can even (optionally) include the story file itself, so that one single file can contain all the Z-code, pictures and sound needed to enjoy the game. The format was debated and agreed after some debate on the Z-machine mailing list. The most significant decisions are that pictures are stored in PNG format and sounds in AIFF format (for samples) or, roughly speaking, SoundTracker files (for music).

This blb file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete. This is typically the case for system files in old operating systems, file types from long discontinued software, or previous versions of certain file types (like documents, projects etc.) that were replaced in higher versions of their original programs.
