3079 is an open-world futuristic action RPG inspired by previous roguelikes 3059 and 3069.
3079 is a modern 3D game built on a roguelike foundation. It includes procedurally generated 3D terrain (similar to Minecraft), items, characters and quests. Unlike previous installments 3059 and 3069, 3079 has a more complete storyline and a definitive end. 3079 runs on the Java platform using jMonkeyEngine.

3079 has been released on Desura and GamersGate, and made it to the top of the charts.
The year is 3079. Many new planets are being discovered full of life. A recently discovered planet is stricken by constant war. You have been sent to this planet to find out why (and hopefully restore peace).
The sequel, 3089, is now available & is a much more modern take on the concepts used 3079.
