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! Really nice, but honestly it was rather difficult in the beginning - I found that the penalty for running out of battery or overheating was too harsh with the loss of ores and money. In order to get the ores I needed for the job/quest, I had to sell what I was able to find to 'heal' myself to complete the quest. That may have been me being dumb, but anyway. Once I was able to get up and running the game ended far too quickly! It became really easy and it would have been fantastic for more missions, or a use for the gold and diamonds. What I think would have been a nice addition also is a change in scenery after retrieving the Core-Ore.

All in all, really fun game, looking forward to more!

The theme is not to new, and there are better games than this, like "Mega Miner". There are some interesting features in it, but all in all it's an average game.

Would get more if it wasn't a blatant Motherload clone.

2d side-scrolling digger where you must upgrade to reach further depths, have limited carrying capacity, and a list of different "minerals" that occupy tiles in your underground grid where you have limited sight. You also have fuel, and for crying out loud, the interface for selling stuff is identical (listing all the minerals you have)

Heck, even the buildings are all the same concept (going to different huts with shop, refuel, etc.)
