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

Of all the games on all the sites, I can't get over this one. Even the various other mining games lack the story of this one. Its always "money to make more money". Kinda died down toward the end. I was looking forward to the 4th and 5th levels but you can plow right past them to get the final ore.

Notes for the future sequel :) You know you're going to do it, Schulles.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Definitely looking out for the sequel!

And not to mention that throughout the game, I was expecting something to go horribly wrong or to encounter something creepy when I go deep into the earth, especially during the last mission when I kept having this gut feeling that there might be something fishy about the Core-Ore.... even when I got the Core-Ore and am making my way back to the surface, I just keep expecting to find the town in ruins and everybody dead since taking the Core-Ore had awoken some malevolent monster or something!

...Or perhaps I'm being too imaginative, but won't it be a neat idea?
