What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Utopia Colony has finished the first stage of development, and we'd love to get players involved... There's quite a few things you can do and more is on the way. We are really interested in any and all feedback you can provide, in as much detail as possible. We'd like to invite everyone to join us in this.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Utopia Colony is getting closer to finished, but there are still several features that we wish to add before it is ready. We expect the game to stay in early access for several months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We plan to improve the bases, add more game play, perform more testing, gather user input, and perform various improvements.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access build has the main gameplay in place: mining rocks, base, upgrading the base, selling ore, trading ore, driving the rover, drill mining, missions, tasks, etc.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to increase the price as we complete testing and improvements.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will collect feedback coming from the community, and also track the game data accumulated during each game session. We will consider the information when developing the game. We hope to hear from you.”

About This Game

The year is 2033. You, an ex-Marine with little opportunities left, have signed up with Utopia Arura, a large mining corporation on Mars. They have sent you to a location they have proposed but you have chosen for mining. Everything else is up to you.

Mining outpost on Mars

Operate a mining outpost on Mars. You start out with a small base. You can earn credits (the currency on Mars in 2033) by mining rocks around the base for ore. When you have earned enough credits, you can purchase a rover that enables you to drive out and mine rocks farther out. You can upgrade the base, build it out with more buildings, equipment, etc. There are many missions and tasks that must be performed to progress in the game and earn credits.

Mine rocks

The first part of the game is about mining rocks for ore. Explore the area around the station and you will find rocks that contain valuable ore. Mine the rocks and bring the ore back to the base.


When you have made enough credits from mining rocks, you will be able to purchase a rover vehicle. The rover enables you to drive out and mine rocks that are farther away from the base.

Rua 51 underground mining facility

Solar flares will periodically cause high radiation levels on the surface of Mars, since the atmosphere is thin. You need to seek shelter in the Rua 51 underground mining facility when the radiation levels get too high on the surface.

Sell ore & buy upgrades, equipment, repairs, etc.

You can sell the ore that you mine using the management user interface at the base. Just click the "sell ore" button, and you will sell ore at the current market price and earn credits. You can use the credits to buy upgrades, equipment, repairs, food, water, etc.


Go on missions to outposts, facilities, the domed colony, etc. Research tasks become available when you have upgraded your base to the highest level, and have hired a researcher. There are different tasks at different locations.


You can buy and sell ore in the marketplace when the station has been upgraded. Prices in the marketplace fluctuate, so it is possible to make or loose credits.

Dust storms

Dust storms can happen at any time on Mars. Dust storms are dangerous because they can be very disorienting and affect communication. You can run out of oxygen if you get lost in a dust storm.

Chill out on Mars

Enjoy several hours of gameplay in solitude on Mars, mining for ore, operating your base station, driving your rover, etc. This may be a good game for you if you like space games and are tired of action-packed shooting games.

Utopia Planitia

The game is set somewhere in Utopia Planitia on Mars. Utopia Planitia (Greek and Latin: "Nowhere Land Plain") is a large plain within Utopia, the largest recognized impact basin on Mars and in the Solar System with an estimated diameter of 3,300 km. Plenty of space and opportunities for anyone who wishes to try ones luck as a prospector.
