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

I already know what people are gonna say: that you ripped off motherload and megaminer. I respectfully disagree; your game is fenomenal. The retro look makes it very interesting combined with your general idea.

I enjoyed every aspect of your game, this is a very solid work.

Congratulations and thank you for providing us with this great quality work!

Simply amazing
this game is great! it contains great 8-bit graphics, good for us low-end computers, but still manages to make everything distinctive and unmistakeable. its easy enough to play, and i got beat the game and all the achievements after and one to two hours, but it still contains a lot of fun gameplay, and a nice smidgen of backstory in there.
well done.
