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

Reviews


The game was either really easy or really hard. It's easy if you just don't care about your chassis until you have to move it up and ran your battery low. But it can be hard for someone if they just kill themselves and don't have any back up money. I got to diamond when I was supposed to go dig up smaragd. In my opinion, the maker of this game should've made the more expensive ores to be more rare. I got $32000 before beating the game and getting smaragd.

I will keep that in mind for Utopian Mining 2! :)


plaztick, there's an ingame save function. You have to save at the tree.



Played Twice. Both times refuses to save my progress. Made sure flash was allowing to save progress. Made sure internet browser wasn't deleting any cookies or history. Rebooted computer. Lost progress. Good game but will not be playing again if progress will not save.


Schulles responds:

Can't believe that after playing the game two times you didn't figure out how to save the game. Next time try to read the instructions properly or look at what Seloving posted. Thanks.


Fun for a classic Great game



this game is a piece of **** it didn't save my achievements
