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 4 / 5 stars

This game was wonderful.
I haven't enjoyed one of these games since Motherload and I think you did a fine job. The job system was interesting, and the benefits from it were nice. The music was also suiting and gave the game a great atmosphere.
However, the storyline and gameplay felt somewhat short and somewhat a bit too much on the easy side. The upgrade system also feels unbalanced seeing how the best things are drastically better than the rest by a long shot instead of reasonably better. I expect great things of a sequel or some continuation. Perhaps you should do more sidequests that give different rewards that the shop doesn't sell, or more towards building the city or exploring around underground.
Overall, I think I'll give you 4/5. Wonderful job and thank you. Best of luck in the future.

This is actually the best NG game I've ever played. That's why I give it a max rank.
