3089 Kickstarter

Posted by , | Views: 4,469

Phr00t the guy that brought us the procedurally generated Sci-fi shooter 3079 and is currently working on Gentrieve 2 a Metroid style game in a similar procedurally generated vein, has posted a Kickstarter to generate funds for 3079 sequel seeking only $1000. This time round the blocky minecraft esk graphics have been ditched in favour of a smoother looking randomly generated environment.


QuoteThe year is 3089.

After the demons were cleared in 3079, a new, much more dangerous threat was able to organize...
3089 is the next big "open-world" game.

3089 will be a futuristic, randomly generated 3D action role-playing game. It is the sequel of my previous game, 3079. It will feel like a first-person shooter, have the depth of a modern role-playing game & be set in a randomly generated world.
All quests, terrain, biomes, weapons, items, enemies & textures will be randomly generated providing a truly unique gaming experience.
3089 will take inspiration from games like Borderlands, Fallout 3 & Just Cause 2.
What makes 3089 special?
  • Terrain will be smoothly generated. This isn't another "blocky" game.
  • More procedural generation: endless biome types and textures.
  • Unique quests made from individually generated task lists.
  • Randomly generated vehicles, from small hovercrafts to large ships.
  • Weapon construction & customization based on individual parts.
  • Limitless height & depths in addition to limitless terrain lengths.
  • Exceptional draw distance with low computer requirements.
  • Dynamic lighting & smooth day / night transitions.
  • Complete storyline; exploring procedurally generating this too!
  • Integrated physics engine.
  • Compatible with Windows, MacOSX & Linux.

Just reminding myself I played 3079 for the first time in ages. This game has everything in place to be a great game, and yet is awful. Truly terrible, but not in a way unfixable way...just in a half-finished unloved beta type of way, with the sandbox fun removed.

Considering I bought this in good faith in indieroyal ALPHA funding I am a little shocked that after getting alpha funding to finish a product he is getting more money for a SEQUEL to an unfinished product.

I'd be yelling CROOK and contacting kickstarter warning them them of a fraudulent product, but the money is small so only a few people will be ripped off.

Its a shame really because 3079 looks great [its sequel 3089 removes everything that is good about 3079] with longer development time, regular updates to develop a fanbase like say like towns; project zomboid; cortex command!?; Voxatron; starfarer [which does not get the attention it deserves]; Revenge of the Titans; Oilrush...and for the love of god minecraft.

He does still update 3079 though, last time I played it i wasn't personally impressed the mobs seemed clunky and weird so it put me off. 3079 i agree with a bit of love could have become much bigger.
