Utopian Mining Overview
Mine and sell ore to profit. Each ores is priced based on its mining depth (Coal $25 Iron $50 Gold $100 Wolfram $250 Smaragd $500 Ruby $750 Diamond $1.5K) Spend money on repairing robot’s health and recharge energy. Your robot’s health will suffer heat damage if it digs too deep. This can be minimized by upgrading cooling liquid and chasis for better heat protection while increasing ore storage. Keep an eye on battery level as it diminishes each time when you dig. To last longer during mining, upgrade your battery capacity and equipped with better drill. If you lose all battery or health, it will cost $250 to rescue your robot out of the tunnel and all ores in storage will be forfeited. To save game, visit Memory of Tree and Press X. To buy upgrades, you need complete Job 3 (view job section) to unlock Shop.

Rebuild The Apartment
Talk to John and he will ask for $250 cash to rebuild his apartment. Dig earth and tunnel at a depth of 3 layers. You can find plenty of black coals at this layer. Mine 10 Coals and sell them at Sell Station. Each coal earns $25, a total of $250 for 10 Coals. Return to John and fund his apartment refurbishment.
Making it warm and cozy
John request for 10 Coals again to heat up the apartment. Mine 10 Coals and give it to him. John rewards $500 for your help, unlocks Shop and introduce to you a new neighbor, Gronk who needs some help.
Alternate Energy Sources
Talk to Gronk and he request you to get him 5 iron for his steam machine production. These orange iron are found deep down at layer 9 to 13. Be careful not to go into layer 14 or deeper as your robot’s health suffer from high heat. At this point of time, your battery has now reach 50% or below. You will need to recharge it at the Power Station.
Running The Steam Machine
Talk to Gronk again and he requests for 12 Coals. Your current chassis can only store up to 10 ores. Purchase a Gold Chassis for $250 at Shop to carry 12 ores in storage. Spend remaining funds into recharging your battery at Power Station before diving into the earth. Return to Gronk with 12 black Coals and he will reward you with $1500 and 10% electricity allowance when you recharge battery at Power Station.
Talk to Dave and give $750 to fund his Wind Turbine Project by using the money rewarded by Gronk. Talk to Dave again to proceed with his next job request.
Visiting The Beach
Dave requests for 50 sands to produce fiberglass, which can be obtained from the Beach. This beach is located at the very far end to the right (east). Keep on walking till you see white sand! Dig up 50 white beach sand and return to Dave. Don’t worry as it will not use up any 12 ore storage. Press ‘M’ to open up the Map (notice the red dot? that is your robot position). Press ‘J’ to open up the Job Window to see how many sand you have harvested. Return to Dave with 50 sand and he rewards $2500 and 15% electricity allowance (a total of 25% allowance from Power Station!)
George request 15 Wolfram for his superconductor research which can help save town’s electricity. Buy Cooling Liquid 4 + Sapphire Drill. Mine Gold and Iron at Layer 28-32 (before first barrier) and sell them. Do these for 3 rounds to have sufficient cash for a Large Battery and Smaragd Chassis (19 Ore Storage).
Finally tunnel your way to second white barrier (Layer 61). Blue Wolfram are abundant in Layer 58-66. Don’t go into Layer 67 and deeper as Cooling Liquid 4 can’t take high amount of heat! Return to George with the research materials and he rewards you with 25% electricity allowance (a total of 50% allowance from Power Station!)
Talk to George again and he requests for 20 Smaragd, a green ore which found deeper than Blue Wolfram. Use your current hardware and mine lots of yellow gold and blue wolfram. Use this cash to purchase the Ultimate Cooling Liquid 4. Repeat mining routine and get Diamond Drill and Diamond Chassis (30 ore storage). With these setup, you can complete the remaining jobs easily! George rewards $15000.
Talk to Jamie and he requests for 25 Red Rubies and by completing this job, he rewards $20000.
Talk to George again and he request you to obtain the core located at the bottom of the map. With the tons of cash obtained from all the previous jobs, you can grab all the best hardware from shop before digging down to the core location. Return to George with the CORE and the game is completed!
