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

it took me so long to do the scientist quests but after them it got kinda easy also id like to point out that if you have an upgrade but have below its cost it will say you need to buy it please try and fix it overall great game 5/5

Really awesome.

I know a lot of games do it, but there's no point having a medal for starting the game or doing basic things, that's giving a reward for nothing

The graphics are just kinda bad, retro is no excuse

The gameplay is pretty boring. Why am I mining all this ore? It's not explained. All you do is move around in the dirt, fetch ore, go back and sell it, so you can get more ore, it's like one big long MMO quest

Loved the style, the story was well made. An addictive little game, nothing else but 5 stars!
