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

katie asks for diamonds so I go mine 30 diamonds then when I get back she says "get me rubies stupid robot"

wtf??? Was this an error or is this supposed to be a realistic depiction of women?

Excellent game, just like Motherload. The only thing I did not feel right about it is around the end-game. There should have been more upgrades, some quests for diamonds, a choice to build what type of building you want, and after buying the last cooling liquid, there's basically no stopping you from amassing a huge amount of money in an instant. Also, the ending was "eh" and disappointing. Of course, these are simple suggestions and not problems inherent in the game. The game was excellent, as had been said, I especially liked the style and music. Can't wait for a sequel.

Beautifully done game. I always loved Motherload and I feel like this was a welcome spiritual successor. With the exception of upgrades. I can't help but feel like there could've been more spaced out better. Also the ending was a tad anticlimactic. But other than that it was fucking amazing, controlling it was intuitive, the spacing of the ores made sense , the dialogue was intriguing and short enough to not drag on. And even all the medals were right on, none were like impossible to get, but the harder ones you feel you've earned. Very good job

Very fun game except as you dig deeper, the slow travel becomes a little tedious. Most important upgrade imo is battery, then cooling. Once you start hitting rock, upgrade drill. As you level up, don't waste time mining the cheap stuff. Go as low as you can and mine the best stuff for better prices. Completing quests yields more money and recharge bonuses.
