“This game is a grand experiment in random/procedural open world generation. Worlds are beautifully generated with oceans, cliffs, canyons, fields, deserts, buildings, fog, weather, and a smooth day/night cycle. As your stats improve you will encounter cooler and tougher enemies, and difficulty scales (infinitely?) from the center. At it's core 3089 is an open-world FPS RPG in the style of Borderlands, with tons of stats that can be increased manually to support different play styles. But the procedural generation and bold, polygonal visual style provide an endless supply of unique, immersive, unpredictable new worlds to learn and explore.”
10/10 – Burtz87 @ IndieDB

“The game has procedurally generated... well, pretty much everything. Missions, weapons, terrain, buildings... you never know exactly what you're in for, although you can be sure it'll be a great ride. Your choice of gameplay styles is limitless - are you a walking tank or a ninja assassin? Diplomatic schemer or ace fighter pilot? There are no hard-and fast roles, and you can mix and match and make it up as you go along.”
10/10 – YetiChow @ IndieDB

“It... Is... Strange... But it makes me feel oddly nostalgic... It is by far extremely well done. But again, it's very strange... I love it :3”

Sneak, steal, hide, teleport, sword charge, rip time, kill the target, sneak again.

Form a crew, take on quets, complete them to gain notoriety, recruit a tougher crew, take on tougher quests.

Find a plane, strafe across enemies, dogfight, get shot down, find an enemy plane behind enemy lines, get back to shooting.

Build up your arsenal, grab a board, blast some baddies, get better gear to upgrade your arsenal, blas more baddies.

Find a nice place, fend off nearby threats, build up some walls and a floor, set down some systems and storage, and defend your new home.

Track down bosses, conquer enemy bases, complete content, discover the history of Xax, try to learn more about the goal of the Overlord.

3089 gives players truly open choices for various styles of gameplay. This world is whatevere you make of it, from espionage to military contest to thrillseeking deeper into high-difficulty territory!

While I do appreciate what the developer is attempting to do in this game, there's just not enough substance for me to actually recommend this game. I love the leveling system and how you can get good at just about everything, but the entire game is just one big grind. There is very little story or plot to the entire game, and at least to me, in a game like this, there needs to be a driving force to continue on or a reason to be doing what you are doing. The quests that are given have no bearing whatsoever on anything besides the fact that they are fetch quests that give you skillpoints.

The graphical style, while interesting, turns stagnant very quickly, and the same goes for the weapons as a whole. They all generally look the same. Not a bad deal at the low price point I picked the game up for, but even then I wouldn't consider it worth it.

3089 is an interesting concept and is fairly well executed with the exception that there could be more content. Basically, you're a robot thrown onto this alien world that is inhabited by only other robots. It's always Red vs Blue with you being on Red's side. You start with nothing and have to go buy your own guns and armor. You can also obtain parts by killing other robots or by stealing off of your teammates. This allows you to come up with different combinations that can increase your stats in different ways. One piece of armor might give you increased health, defense, and flying skills, while another can give you gun, melee, and agility.

Another thing is the quest system. It allows you to pick your own quests from these stations in buildings. There are always 13 quests at one time, and they increase in level as you filter through them. The further out you go from the starting point also increases the level of the quest, but also the reward. You can earn credits and skill points through these. While the quests are pretty basic, e.g. go here and disarm this bomb, spy on this robot without being detected, and go kill these robots. The problem with this as thats about the extent of the quests.

Aside from that there are the occasional bosses that show up on your map. They provide a substantial challenge and unless you have some other robots following you around, it can be almost impossible. There's also a building aspect to the game but it's pretty hard to understand. Sometimes you'll build a teleporter and it won't work. You can also build storage boxes to keep some of your things in.

All in all though, I would say it's a fairly fun game to just play for a bit. It's nothing spectacular graphics wise, but it makes up for it by just being fun and interesting in general. I think the developer is working on a sequel, 4089 is what I believe it's called and I hope he'll expand on the already implemented ideas.

This game isnt good for its amazing graphics or for the ememies that dont miss. Its a good game becasue it has a lot of great features. For one, you can design your weapons how you want them and also design a base to call home. When progressing through the story, new ememies are unlocked and become a common fight in your world that is unique to YOU. I definatly recommend this game expecially to those that dont have max settings and quad cores ect...

The main downside is that multiplayer doenst seem to work... my brother and I tried about 30 times to try to get it to work but we had no luck. So if you want a game with a decent single player than this is the game for you.

I recommend this game, but really only as a multiplayer SHMUP rather than a single-player adventure. The solo adventure really hinges on a lot of randomly-generated quests, followed by a drip-fed plot, where nothing really feels coherently tied-together. Complete random tasks, acquire stuff, kill boss, difficult ramps up, rinse and repeat ad infinitum. So I must say I didn't spend very long there before my patience grew a little thin.

As a multiplayer game, this really shines. Crafted weapons and armour, great vehicles, a brilliant open-ended adventure, or just a slaughterfest. Up to you, really! So grab some chums and give this a try - just don't expect the single-player mode to do anything new or exciting.

One of the best randomly generated games I've ever played. I had lowered my expectations to be honest and they would've been blown out of the water regardless. The gunplay is a bit tricky to get a grip on, but very fun. Has companions, quests, weapon/armor crafting, and piloting! got it 3 days ago, already clocked in 12 hours!

Very fun, i got it to play with friends but then ran into some problems, every 3 minuites the server resets or game crashes and it sais that sometthing broke. You also have to enter in the ip every time you want to play, would recomend if theese problems where fixed. But if You want to play it single player, i highly recomend this.

I played more than 0.3 hours on the non-Steam version.

It's not really finished. The dev seems to have gotten bored with it, called it a final release and moved onto something else. I was hoping it would improve but it never really did beyond a few tweaks. I foolishly assumed that the assests were placeholders and would eventually be replaced by something better. I'm not talking realistic as I can appreciate simple, attractive design. This looks like temporary dev art. It lacks the depth it promises. 3089 could have turned into something more interesting but the dev gave up.

4089 looks better but I won't be putting any money towards it. I'm afraid the dev will get bored with that as well and leave it half finished.

Pros: Had potential.

Cons: That potential will never be realised.

3089 -- Futuristic Action RPG is the sequal to 3079 -- Block Action RPG. It's the same procedurally generated content idea, but we've moved from giant pixel graphics (ala Minecraft) to a more triangular approach. So a big graphics improvement from the previous title, and there were many other engine tweaks and fixes that went into this sequal that are new and improved. There are a few kinks to iron out yet (the map is one of them, very finicky) but overall there is a lot of improvements to like here.

However, two things of note that I like more in the previous title are the music and the grappling hook. While the music isn't bad in 3089, the music in 3079 was *really* good. In addition, the grappling hook in 3089 has weight restrictions and is slowed down compared to its brother in 3079 - it's like the pistol in Halo 2 compared to Halo 1 - yeah it works, but it's not nearly as awesome as its younger brother was.

With the above said what it really boils down to is this a good "game" and would I recommend playing it. Unlike my "unrecommended" for 3079 I think 3089 is a perfectly playable, procedurally generated game, rather than a sandbox tech demo. Even with that said, I still think the developer needs to implement a few more tweaks regarding general gameplay before I'd recommend it to the average gamer. However, if you're into this sort of real sandboxy, do anything you like sort of title with procedurally generated content then 3089 is probably worth a look for you. Otherwise the recycled quests and lack of real story-based content make me recommend passing on 3089 with another real cudos to the developer for their engine improvement. I'm looking forward to the next iteration of this series and anticipate that (with a few more gameplay tweaks) this developer will drop gold.

- The RPG side is limited to acquiring random weapons of higher stats. Your character earns three points each level, however this is ridiculous compared to the dozen of points a gadget adds to your stats.
- Weapons are composed of three elements, but same level elements have the same stats given or taken some points.
- Combat is a drag. NPC movements are random and quick and bullets travel slowly, to compensate the impossibility to aim properly, you can slow down time. However flying NPC are always too far and move before the bullet reaches them.
- Explosions hid enemy NPCs during combat, obviously enemy NPC can see and shoot you through the smoke.
- Gathering followers to fight enemy NPCs is fun the first time. You lose all your followers loading a savegame.
- Landscape is formed by flat surfaces connected at 30°, 45°, or 90°. You can climb any surface but the vertical ones. Landscape is terrible.
- Weapons, armor, ammunition, energy, life, repair, they all have their own station. These stations are scattered all over the place. You'll spend half your time looking and running from a station to the other.
- Ghosts appear and disappear, move on a zigzag pattern and a general nuisance.
- Swawa3D improved the textures, and the UI now looks like something useful.
- The story is forgettable.
- Though missions are generated randomly, they become fairly repetitive quickly.
The developer put many good ideas into this game to make it more interesting, I had fun while discovering how the game works, this game would have been a classic 20 years ago. However the simplistic game mechanics, the bare environment, the lack of a decent AI and the shallowness of the plot prevent me to play this game again.

3089 is so much better than 3079 that you might actually believe it's a good game!

It's not, but still, it's way, way, *way* better than the prequel. The graphics and most of the mechanics are still bad, but at least now you can tell what's going on, the interface doesn't look like it was mucked together on a programmer's lunch break, etc.

Still lol at the jswing/java ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ at the beginning though!

This is 3079's sequel. However, ten years later after the demons, and a huge war... actually I don't even think its on the same planet let alone has anything to do with the first title, in fact combat, upgrades, and even building are far harder to do then the first game... Now I have to apploud the company for trying a new direction but I feel like they took a swing way to far to the left in this title. You play as a really hard to control robot that is fighting a rebel robot army... that isnt really explained why your fighting, what the difference is between the robots, and why the crap robots are fighting? Seriously? You'd think robots would tule out war and work together to create a more advanced civilization which is a way more logical scale of thinking then "your blue Im red lets shoot each other..." In lighter news I think the newer game 4089 is coming out but... I dont know if Id risk another huge curve ball.

Two thumbs up from me! 3089 reminds me of deus ex, borderlands, just cause 2, and even elements of minecraft added together with huge, old school styled, randomly generated terrain and missions. The only downside is that the combat could be a tad smoother, but its still a must have game!

I'm hooked with this game and although it has an apparently simple design, it's quite complex and fun.

I'll be playing it for a while.

Who would want this game:

* People who like retro, fps and rpg games.
* People who like a complex skill system to control their gameplay style.
* People who like a challenge. It's not an easy game, specially in its early stages.

I think it's amazing that it was mainly developed by one person. It's kinda inspiring.

If you are into wasting 10 dollars on getting kicked in the balls by a donkey this is the perfect game for you. The game makes you feel lost and gives you no clear indicators on what to do or where to go. The graphics are bad in a 'good way'. It is intentoinally blocky and blank in many areas,but sometimes when you are floating around in the ugly 'vast' wasteland that is this game, you start to notice that no time or effort was put into the game and phr00t has just pulled the best chris angel trick on you yet by making 10 dollars totally disapear along with the hour you spent looking for where the ♥♥♥♥ to go.

For a game that looks like it was made on a budget of absolutely nothing, its bizarrely pleasant looking and very fun to play, not in a so-bad-its-good way either, I have no idea how the developer managed to get achieve that quality, but it certainly makes for a unique game.

Also, you can destroy aircraft easier by using a sword, yeah.
