File type specification:

Archive and compressed file type icon Archive and compressed file type

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).
