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

Enjoyable, can't really complain on anything, I suppose the digging does get slightly repetitive after awhile but it's a mining game so what should I expect? Maybe add some enemies to fight off while digging kinda like a dig dug thing, but still I enjoyed playing until the very end.

Great game. I agree that this one is a much better improvement over the similar concept mining game Mega miner?

This is a fun and relaxing waste of time.
In my opinion, I don't think that this game is trying to be anything more than that, and I don't believe that it needs to aspire to anything more. It made me happy to play it and that's all I expect from any game.

Now that I look at my clock, I see that I have sunk two hours into this game. However, I wasn't bored or frustrated by it at all. The art is nice, the music engaging, and the tasks blissfully mundane. All in all, the best waste of time I've come across in the last week.
