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 starts out quite slow, but once it pickes up pace it is fantastic. If you can power through the first few upgrades, you will be rewarded.

Sir, this game is beyond amazing. There are very few games online that I have enjoyed more than this game. You have a talent with 8-bit. The only reason why I couldn't give 5 stars is because it had an end, and I wanted to keep on playing. I wish there were more quests, but I understand that all games have to end at some point. I liked how story and quest orientated this game was. I also liked the Mine Craft feel to it paired with the 8-bit world. Thank you for posting this genius game.

This was a great game, but it was far too short and easy. I would like to recommend that if you ever make another, you add more quests, or possibly have so many randomly generate. Also, I would recommend raising the prices on equipment and lowering the money gained from mining, once you strike gold you really only have to save up for the next diamond equipment.

This was a awesome time waster, my only doubt was that it got way to easy near the end of the game, But all in all it was a awesome game.
