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



Rated 4 / 5 stars

Fun Game. reminded me of a miner played for hours back in the day, but you flew in that one :P Only complant is how all the biulding are one the top right. Can make for annoying trips ALL THE WAY ACROSS.....


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Great game!!! i enjoyed it alot.. one bad thing was the battery life towards the star but other then that great game !!!!


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Great game! I enjoyed it! It's a simple little game that's pretty fun to kill some time on. Once you get into it it's pretty easy to understand and get the hang of. It's actually pretty relaxing. I just sat down, zoned out, and dug around while listening to some music. It's good for what it is. Nice job man!


Rated 4 / 5 stars

very good, it was really annoying thoug when you had to walk and it seems that the battery drains very quickly.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

it was pretty good. id recommend in future releases to string the story along instead of tossing it all out there at once. for example, in the shop, you should only be able to see the crappiest items first. after you do some of the story, you help them discover how to make better items for you to buy. the story of the townfolk could use some extension as well. maybe some background for each person.
one item id suggest adding would be a radar, which increases your "sight" radius while digging.
anyways, i enjoyed the game and look forward to a more polished sequel. ;)
