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 / 5 stars

It starts out slow and tedious at first, but as you get more and more upgraded, money is extremely easy to come by. Fun game!

I've had enough mining games to last me a few lifetimes... I like the 8-bit, but there's nothing all too great about this game. :/


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Really enjoyable, I just wish it was longer.

Simply amazing
this game is great! it contains great 8-bit graphics, good for us low-end computers, but still manages to make everything distinctive and unmistakeable. its easy enough to play, and i got beat the game and all the achievements after and one to two hours, but it still contains a lot of fun gameplay, and a nice smidgen of backstory in there.
well done.

Could it go any slower? Honestly!! Boring Motherload clone with tile-ish graphics, a giant map, and a ridiculous depth limit, but worst of all, a game that runs so incredibly slow you could fall asleep while playing? Please, this robot should be moving at least three times as fast as he is, even if he uses up that much more gas. The boredom level is unbelievable! Be grateful I only took off a star and a half for this, I should have docked you twice as much.
