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 2.5 / 5 stars

Dunno how anybody finished this in 5 minutes. I've been playing nearly an hour and haven't gotten wolfram. You have to buy intermediate levels of upgrades just to get around to reaching more expensive ores, just to buy more upgrades. Gold runs out fast so you end up grinding away at every last coal and iron. Then you go to buy the second-highest liquid cooling and it takes some odd amount of money away and doesn't give you the cooling system. Fuck that... this game takes way too long, and is way too grindy.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Nice Game. . . .


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Its quite short and boring. Just mining just is boring i bought all the expensive upgrades, completed all the jobs under 5 minutes. Put more jobs in it, maybe throw some monsters in too.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Awesome mining game. Really liked to play. however, what do you do when finished? mine, of course, but there is no respawn. A ore lost is lost forever. Motherload had a respawn system that when you come back, there is nothing dug. So you could continue to dig how long as you want. Knowing that the ore are unlimited. I think this is the only major flaw.
I also think it's too short also.

Keep up the great work!

Great game overall, I enjoyed playing it but walking across the whole map took some time, especially to get the sand.
