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 5 / 5 stars

Pretty good game in my opinion. What i really liked most about it was the music in the game.
Very relaxing and calm <3

you lose all your money when life ends and you should be able to choose the battery and repair

The game was great! The controls were very easy to understand, just the arrows, x, and c.
I'm just wondering if I was the only one who thought of the game 'Motherload' when I started getting into this game? The two seem very similar.

Professor: "Now for the last Epic mission! Ever wondered what is that green dot on your map?"
Me: "Well, you mean this Core Ore stuff I have been carrying around pretty much half the game?"
Professor: "Oh.."

Very nice game indeed. It was a bit confusing that when you get the core ore it says you need to bring it to the laboratory and there is no laboratory :D And when there is, you cannot beat the game until you have fetched those wolframs and rubies x)

Also it is sad that there really isn't point in buying all the gear, just save enough to skip few stages. I only used smaragd and diamond gear because you cannot sell your old gear so it is just waste to buy every step. :/

Still I enjoyed this game, thanks!
