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



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

The mechanics are pretty flawless, but the game loses its appeal pretty quickly if you know how to manage your money correctly. I had most of the diamond equipment before I even got to the last two missions. Getting the CORE was kind of a no sweat thing. Would have been better if there were more upgrades, or if the upgrades were less effective/harder to get. Once you get maxed, the game gets pretty easy. Otherwise, well done. Keep pushing the concept!

Awesome game! I love these kind of open end explore adventure type games and you pulled it off really well. The music set a nice atmosphere and the graphics were simple but performed their job well.
The gameplay is the selling feature, the basic quest and upgrade style worked really well for you. My only problem is that it seemed to speed up too much near the end. It seemed to take me forever to get to the Smaragd rocks but then after that they became worthless almost immediately since I could reach the diamonds and rubies. A few more steps in progression may have been good, but then I guess you run the risk of it being boring.
Maybe throwing in a few more sidequests of some type beyond going and getting specific mineral types would keep it going longer. Really my only complaint is that it was over too soon. Awesome job!
