“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”
9/10 – SeaNanners

“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.”
10/10 – Blackop2 @ IndieDB

I really wouldn't recommend it. And I don't. Game is just about running around, doing repetetive quests and buying stuff from shopkeepers and that's pretty much it. If there's a proper story, I didn't see it. There is no progression joy.

Edit: Pick up 3089 instead!
OK to play for a hour or two, not worth picking up on its own. Can only really recommend getting it if its already included in a humble bundle of some sort.

A game that has... had potential, I origionally bought this game because It looked quite interesting, I'm not extremly picky about graphics as long as gameplay is good, but in that term this game is difficult. It offers no real insight to anything you do, the quests are confusing and make little to no sense, and you die about as often as you click the keys in a button masher. The gameplay can be good, if you know how to fight, and you have good gear, but in that sense, getting good gear is almost impossble without googling how. Refering to how this game had potential, since the begining of the development of 4089, its all you see on this page, there hasn't been an update on this game in months, and the developer continously keeps posting about 4089 on the 3079 page, its rather infuriating, seeing as I'd like to see news about 3079 on the 3079 page. Beyond that, if you want a good time waster this can be pretty good, but in the long run, its not gonna suit you for long. If you wanna give it a shot you can, but its not something to put a large amount of time in.

This game was barely developed. You will realize it as soon as you start it. The opening cutscene bugged me out and the world is cluttered, ugly, and confusing. The controls and movements are loose and sloppy. It's not playable or fun.

Play at your own risk, this game is a sham.

WOW this game is something else. The best way to describe this game is a girl that is everything you like in a girl both looks and personality. But therre is one downfall she is moody and is a pain to deal with but when you get past the bad it is amazing fun but with frustration.

When first starting this game you are a level 1 in every sense. No weapons,weak,poor, cant complete quests right away,etc. But when you level up and are able to finish your first quest and get some money and loot you will become more powerful. Eventually you will do a quest that offers a demon smiter. Now you can finally kill those unfair ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s and continue the story. After killing more demons and completing more quests you will become even stronger and able to explore now. At this point the game is beyond amazing but you are not invincible. Cheap deaths will happen still or demons will get you when you have low hp so keep that in mind. This game is just ♥♥♥♥ing amazing if you can make it through the brutal begining the game opens up to one of the most refreshing action rpg's I have ever played.

I would recommend this game a thousand times over if I could. The reason this game is good is because of the unique style. The easiest way to explain this is that this game is a mix of Minecraft's terrain and characters, and the battles and random generation from Call of duty (Battles) and the random generation of Spelunky. I hope many people support this game, and the TWO other games being updated and made at this moment.

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.

3079 is a game i really have mixed feeling about, on one hand you have randomly generated open world areas, iwht a mix of minecraft and borderlands which just doesn't sit right, First off the look of the game is just awful i know it's only like $6 but damn it's pretty hard to get past the graphics. Then the server hosting is just god awful with hugh amounts of lag spikes and just random disconnects and most of the quests simply being just fetch quests is suffice to say to save your money and buy something else.

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

Unplayable and noisy. There's no clear sense of purpose to this game unless you count becoming lost inside a building-- which is basically a maze-- trying to find an NPC that won't be helpful at all.
Then you fly into the air and get eaten by the demon thing that's making all the noise.

The game costs about as much as a beer, but you're better off drinking a beer.

It is EXTREMELY hard. But it can actually be really cool. Recommended! It's really fun, although dying is about as often as inhaling...
