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

A very good little game, reminds me of Motherload (Motherlode, it's different on different pages), just quite a bit easier and with little jobs that motivate me a bit better. I don't have anything against it, except for the fact that I didn't understand that there was a temperature meter at first and that it becomes too easy in the end. I was actually expecting the world to collapse after *spoiler*, but it didn't. It just ended.
Overall - a good game, but too short and not much of a challenge (not enough at least)

It was fun, kept me entertained for about an hour and a half. I was hoping there would be some kind of easter egg hidden in a dark corner so I cleared the whole map, no luck though :(. All in all it was enjoyable.

Was fun but endgame was too easy, after you get third upgrade the game is basically over.

any chance you got some influence from motherload?
overall an amazing game with one flaw: it's too short. if you can find some way to increase the length of gameplay would be a massive benefit
