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

really outstanding job! i just finished beating it and got all achievements.. i enjoyed every bit of this game hope there's a utopia 2 :D



Great game. I really hope you make a sequel, but make it longer than this one. Also a better variety of upgrades would be good. It was far too easy to get the best upgrades really early on.

Loved the retro feel, loved the music, loved the extensive playable area. I look forward to more.

Really fun game, and i know its not supposed to be challenging, but it was like too easy. I didnt even have to bother getting anything below the 3rd level for stuff then i only got one 4th level, then the rest were the 5th level things, which i just bought all of them cuz i had so much extra money, and i still did as i finished the game. Again great story and game, but too easy imo.



good game! only got 1 star cause it took 10 mins to load...



I opened this game with kind of a "yeah yeah doesn't look that special" attitude.

Needless to say, I was wrong.
Great game man, it's nice to see the world change in front of you
