“This is an amazing game! I love the combination of a procedurally generated voxel world with intense action & RPG elements. The grappling hook and anti-gravity pack are a lot of fun and add an interesting dynamic to the game. I love exploring the seemingly infinite world to find new items and situations.”
10/10 – Swawa3D @ IndieDB

“Just want to say again that this is a great game! For those of you who feel like its a minecraft copy just beacuse of the cube textures used you really need to rethink what a game is about! The game play of 3079 is nothing like minecraft it is pretty unique as well as how the weapons all have diffrent stats and colors kind of reminds me of Borderlands. However it is still an original idea for a game and i still play it from time to time. You should at least try the demo and if you like it please buy it and support fruit! :D Still give it a 9/10 ! Best Regards, Adam”

“After playing this game all day, all i can think about is playing it more. It has an insane amount of replayability and the difficulty is random. Which is refreshing. Some enemies are difficult to kill and some are easy. The way the difficulty gets higher is based off the distance from where you start. Which is great.”

Man I don't even know. I respect the amount of work that went into this game, but it just feels so cobbled together with no strong sense of what you're doing or where you are. The game claims a full story line with a purpose but all the missions I find seem to be procedurally generated from the same 5 basic mission types. That might be fine if the game was more set up like a sandbox style game, but I just found myself running around shooting things, and then getting money to go shoot more things because some dude with a star somewhere told me to just because.

This game might have been mindblowing if it was released in 1994, but this style of gameplay design just doesn't cut it for me anymore.

3079 is similar to a combination of Borderlands and Minecraft, as its a very open world, with a very 'blocky' look. I was attracted to this game due to the Steam Reviews, which seemed to indicate a very unique game, with lots of replayability and exploration. I have played this game for about 4-5 hours, not the 7 minutes reported, due to the game not reporting to the Steam Client as it opens up in a Java window....

Unfortunately, my experience has not been very good. Initially, the game would not run, and required 2-3 reinstallations from Steam to ensure it would open as expected. Once in the game, there is not a lot in the ways of a fluid or organic flow to the game. You sort of just walk around, hoping to figure out things as you go before you die. The monsters are not that exciting to look at, and the animations are very poor. I have attempted to play with a friend, and even then, the game was not any clearer.

I would describe this game as a cult-classic type favorite, where you either LOVE the game, or you HATE/DON'T UNDERSTAND the game. Unfortunately for the developer, I easily fall into the "Don't Understand", and "Don't Like" side. Since the game is cheap I find it hard to give a bad review, but this game unfortunately goes into my 'Pile of Shame'.

TLDR; not a great game, not well developed. very cult-like following, but was not able to enjoy.

Wanting to know more about the game, I checked out the Community forums. The top post is "NOT a ripoff of Minecraft."

The whole post is wasted on just the graphics. 3079 is a minecraft clone in that it moves, feels, and acts like Minecraft. Being a Minecraft clone is not a dirty word. In the 90s, if you were a FPS, you were a Doom-clone. If you were a 1vs1 fighter, you were a Street Fighter-clone. Tetris-clones were everywhere. But then there was Dr. Mario, and Tetris Attack, and the block-puzzle genre was born.

Now that we got that out of the way, let's review 3079. It's a big open world with a randomly generated properties. There's a lot of the same. Once you've seen one building, you've seen them all. You're exploring and doing quests that surrmount to basic fetch quests. This is a game where you get out there, and shoot stuff and watch your numbers get bigger. I spent the next few hours scratching my head, wondering, "What am I supposed to do?"

3079 is sparse. With a better tutorial and more interesting 'ah-ha moments', there could be something here. But not right now.

the devs claim that it uses a 'different and original block engine than minecraft' and I have to agree, except this one is counter intuitive and sucks.

I got this game with Indie Royale Alpha Bundle #1 (Along with Wyv & Keep and Towns) and I didn't swap it to Steam until yesterday - but this game is awesome. Anyone can pick it up and play and enjoy it somehow - rpg fans, sandbox fans, or shooter fans. However, some of the controls can take some time to get used to. For example, I am used to "E" being inventory in Minecraft, but also "E" being use in Valve games, and I couldn't bind them both to "E" or we would have a Zelda CD-I issue. So, I have to reach all the way over to "I" for inventory. This issue is minor though. 10/10

Great game, I enjoyed, and will still, many hours of this game.
It is a sandbox game with elements from Borderlands and Skyrim. (No it's not a minecraft clone because of the blocks!)
The feeling you get when you found a better sniper than before and succesfully install a upgrade element to it never gets old.
I highly recommend trying the demo of the game first (which can be found on phr00t's website.) to see if you like the game enough.
