About This Game

Those of you who have never dreamt about finding a gold nugget, please raise your hand. Ok, now, gather around, because I’m about to tell you something. The rest of you can just enjoy this experience because there is nothing I can tell you to make you even more interested. It’s just a “dream come true” for all of us, right?



Gold Rush allows you to discover the tough experience of gold mining. You start with just a few bucks, but with passing days, you can become the wealthiest man in Alaska.





We created a big, detailed world with four unique gold mining claims. On each, you will find a fully deformable terrain. Each fragment of our world has its own background story you can discover in your spare time.



Our main goal was to create a high-fidelity simulation. You will spend a lot of time in the excavator, as it is the main gold mining tool. So with that in mind, we spent the majority of our time giving you the best possible experience.



There is no campaign in our game. Instead, we decided that you will go directly into the Sandbox mode, where you will not be constrained by anything. If you ever feel lost or you don't know what to do, press TAB key and check the journal and DIGTube for additional info.



Remember, nobody can work all day, all night. Even if you’d like to, the hard work of gold miners is often hampered by the force of nature. Difficult weather conditions can easily spoil the machines and stop the extraction for a long time, not to mention the winter when you can’t dig at all.
