4089: Ghost Within, Sci-Fi Action RPG, Available On Steam

By - | Views: 6,754

4089 is a self-described stealth action RPG that was released on Steam last week. It's a sequel to both 3079 and 3089 (the latter previously covered on GOL most recently here), and features a similar sense of aesthetics and gameplay style.

The trailer below shows off most of the core features of this sci-fi indie game:

In addition, the game is very mod-friendly. The developer has posted the basics on the game's page and actively encourages user content. In a recent patch, he has even included a custom room created by the community into the base game.

There's a demo available which requires Java to run which you can find here. It's pretty easy to pick up and play and should be intuitive to anyone who has ever played Minecraft or any other game with destroyable blocks and build-able objects. And the skill customization and procedurally generated mother-ship ensures that no two playthroughs are the same.

You can purchase 4089 either through Steam or directly from the developer.

History, sci-fi, technology, cooking, writing and playing games are things I enjoy very much. I'm always keen to try different genres of games and discover all the gems out there.

Oh and the name doesn't mean anything but coincidentally could be pronounced as "Buttery" which suits me just fine.

So it's written in Java? Interesting. Anyone know what framework/devtools/IDEs/libs are used?

I'm sure if you asked Phr00t (the dev) he'd tell you. He strikes me as the type. Try either his facebook page ( or the steam forums.

I think 4089 use JMonkey Engine 3 since 3079 was also made with JMonkey Engine 3.

It's $ 7,99 at And the one direct from the developer is more expensive since you get a physical version shipped.

Ow, and if you are quick it's even cheaper on Steam for a few more hours :)

All in all, phr00t did it again :)
