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

Minecraft Mining more developed and a more peaceful atmosphere. Executes very well.

½ star for shortness and the fact that level is still too plain, otherwise this is a great game with potential. While playing I already had a vision of multiplayer mode with idea that veins of iron, etc need to be harvested longer with some turret like tool that can be broken by heat, random change or other PC / NPC char.

Shortness of gameplay doesn't really bother me, I think you should just say that it's designed that way. Make it so that player can't get all tools etc, at one try, so theres a balance that needs to be thought, for example speed calculated from weigth and equipments. Veins of rock could have few spaces, so that diamonds, etc could be harvested without better drill, just rushing to depths with fire shields.

Sounds are more than nice, but still need more diversity and lenght.

If you dont make multiplayer, i'll copy this idea and rush to fame with it. ;P

and "replay, replay, replay and balance" that's the way to hook us all.

Great game. The music and simplicity of the game made it awesome. I just wish it was a little bit longer. It was really fun playing the game, though :D
