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

beginning is a bit tough if you don't do the jobs. end is kinda easy once you get the upgrades. now about the game..it has good controls, it's simple, easy to learn and addictive. bit slow at beginning but picks up more you play it. graphics are pretty good.

A very well polished, balanced and enjoyable game. Thoroughly enjoyed completing the game. Came to know about this game from the flixel tutorials.
Progression of jobs, power ups and medal achievements are well balanced. The medal icons are gorgeous.
I wish the developer expands this game to become commercial success.
Thanks for the wonderful game.

I like this game a lot. It's very simple but fun, and although a little short, it's still great.
It actually reminds a game also on Newgrounds called "Scuba," which is also a favorite of mine. I see a lot of reviews saying how they like the game, and want a sequel, which I additionally wish for (pls creator), so I recommend you guys checking out Scuba. It's like this but futuristic and admittedly much more complex than this game. It has Terraria and Minecraft vibes.
Anyways, love this game, hoping for a sequel, and have a good day!

I've been a fan of this game since the day it was released. Is there anyway you'd consider expanding or sequalizing the game? The concept is enjoyable and the simplicity makes me want to keep playing and see what else I can get built into the town.

Hey, glad you enjoy it. I have been working on a part two of this game from time to time now. I am actually pretty far with it already but don't really find the time lately to finish it. If it gets published any time I will let you know. Best regards, Julian
