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 stars

I personally loved it! I liked the retro feel to it, and it took me a while to actually mine enough to beat it, so it kept me busy enough. I just have one thing to say about it, you should add more jobs after the final one, that way the diamonds have some sort of purpose other than just for money. Also, I didn't QUITE like how you just put the sand in there for one mission, it seemed pointless.

Add in some jobs after you actually beat it or more main missions during the storyline, so there is more to do, and give some of the things you added more meaning and purpose in the game, and I think you will have true gem of a game! :)

what is this game using to "save" because every time I start it there are no previous games, and just now I got awarded the start your adventure medal again. other than that I loved the game.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

eh, beaten it, was overall a good game.
Only complaints I have are about the shop and the diffculty curve.
The game is very difficult early on, struggeling to get the money you need to recharge your battery etc etc... but after just a few upgrades, all challnge is gone.
The shop... just becomes unneccery very quikly, I allready had all the upgrade by the time I got the the rubys, and I just didn't even bother mining anything.
I think these two issues need to be addressed.
Other then that, a pretty good game.

It takes less than 30 minutes to beat this game. Once you save up for the cooling fluid you can just go down to the diamonds and clean house. If you've ever played a game called MOTHERLOAD you will have a good idea of how you can make it harder to go deeper. In that game, the deeper you go, the slower you drill, encouraging the player to buy faster drills. You also run into occasional explosives which damage you, encouraging the player to buy hull upgrades. This game is far simpler in comparison. Nonetheless it was a fun half hour.
