Daily 2nd place, frontpaged, so many kind reviews and such a nice rating! Well, thanks a lot guys, you're awesome! :D

EDIT: This game was inspired by 'Motherload'. It is about mining ores and selling them to buy upgrades and drill deeper. Utopian Mining is part of this mining genre, so the games share the same basic concept. However, I did my very best to make it different to other mining games, by adding a different atmosphere, a story, some quests, cartoony-8bit-graphics and another feeling to it (and some other small stuff, too).

I hope you enjoy playing it. :)

Welcome to Utopia!
A few days ago a storm destroyed nearly the whole town.
Help these people and find out more about the Core-Ore...
Mine around as a mining robot, earn money, buy better hardware and complete missions.

This game has a few missions, different upgrades for your robot like drills, chasis, cooling liquids and batteries, awesome music made by Kevin MacLeod, some selfmade 8bit sounds, and lots of coal, iron, gold, wolfram, smaragd, ruby and diamonds!

How to play:
'LEFT', 'UP', 'RIGHT', 'DOWN' - move around
'X' - interact with things
'C' - cancel or leave
'J' - jobs
'M' - map
'I' - inventory

Great game, but it gets kind of tedious. It would be nice to see a bit more content. And nice Futurama reference.

Wow very cool game, I wish it could be more long and defiant, with more variety of quests


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Nice game, kept me entertained, but its way too easy, I finished it in just under two hours, having dug up the core in my possesion two quests ahead of time.
All you do is make some deep shaft mines and graze the deepest part you can safely get to, try to skip as many upgrade levels as possible, I never bought any upgrades under 2500 except for the hull.
This makes it sound like a boring levelgrinding game, but fortunately, the goals in the quest and limited storage capacity kept me wanting to finish 'Just one more quest' before going on to do something useful with my night.
Maybe some more levels of upgrade, and a smaller leap between the last two(the 2500 coolant gets you halfway there and the best goes all the way, for example) some hidden archeological sites or that sort of variation and you'd have a five star game on your hands.
