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

Awesome game. The engine is much more smooth and responsive than Motherload. Please make a second part with more conent.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

i simply LOVED it !!!


Rated 5 / 5 stars

I really loved this game,the 8 bit/pixel style and the music fits a lot with his genre. It can maybe be difficult when you start.
This game is awesome,I hope you can make a SECOND chapter of it,maybe with more Upgrades,more customization (Like more types of robos,more types of drills...etc) more AWESOMENESS! Great job


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

8-bit for the win. Any way. YES! the texture is all sexy and shit and the music is great and fits the game perfectly. I also like the little dialog that i had whit the npc's in the game. That game was very easy to get in to and i thin that you did a great job whit this. And i hope that you keep this up and that you make some more great games in the future. In my opinion this game deserves a 4,5/5. no question. And i gave Battlefield 3 a 2,5/10. Just saying, Now why didn't you get a 5 from me?. Well the game is a bit short. If you are planing to make another game like this. Then it should be in space. And i wan't to play as Spock. Or Darth Vader, And they should use BIG mining ships instead of small robot's. But i'm getting of track. As i said. Great game keep it up. Live long and prosper.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Took me about an hour to beat, wasn't too hard at all, but it was still pretty fun.
