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

This is a really good game. But the world needs to be larger and your character needs to move faster.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Good game- just what I wanted to play.
Was left wanting more though.
Would have liked it longer and/or harder :)


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Excellent game, just like Motherload. The only thing I did not feel right about it is around the end-game. There should have been more upgrades, some quests for diamonds, a choice to build what type of building you want, and after buying the last cooling liquid, there's basically no stopping you from amassing a huge amount of money in an instant. Also, the ending was "eh" and disappointing. Of course, these are simple suggestions and not problems inherent in the game. The game was excellent, as had been said, I especially liked the style and music. Can't wait for a sequel.

It wasn't easy, but I finally beat the game. I had a lot of fun playing it and I'd definitely recommend this to others. It was very relieving that I the secret medals were quite obvious and I didn't got stuck with a feeling that I wasn't able to get them all.
Good job, my only suggestion would be to make the walking faster for each drill, it's incredibly annoying, especially in the beginning, to go all the way to the end of the map for some sand.

Anyways, great game!

Very entertaining game. Sadly, it's too short in my opinion, and there should be more content.
