A New Chapter

Dear Gold Seekers,

Today is a special day, a day that marks a new beginning for our beloved game. We want to sincerely thank all of you who have been with us throughout the years, from the first moments of exploration in the wild regions of Alaska in Gold Rush: The Game. Your support, dedication, and passion have been incredible sources of inspiration for our team.

Today, we announce the transition to a completely new chapter, which we embark upon under a new name: Gold Mining Simulator. This name change not only reflects a new stage in the history of our game but also symbolizes our commitment to delivering even more exciting and satisfying experiences to you.

We would also like to express our gratitude to Discovery, which has been an extraordinary inspiration for our project. Their spirit of adventure and exploration of uncharted territories has significantly influenced what Gold Rush: The Game / now Gold Mining Simulator, has become today. Thank you for all the inspiring moments and the trust you have placed in us.

Our work on the game continues unabated, and today’s update is just the beginning. We want to assure you that new information, features, and even more exciting elements will be coming your way soon, enhancing your gold-seeking adventures. New DLC coming in April!

We want to pay special attention to our players using PlayStation and Xbox consoles. We know you have been eagerly awaiting upgrades and modernizations, so we guarantee that this update will be available to everyone soon. We have been working on it with full dedication for quite some time. This and the next ones we are planning in April will help make your gaming experience even more rewarding, and we promise to make every season exciting.

Once again, we thank all of you for your support, passion, and dedication. Together, we are creating an unforgettable history of gold seekers. Join us in Gold Mining Simulator, and let’s discover new treasures together!

Let’s Get Digging

No guts, no glory!

Become a gold miner. Work hard, dig deep, explore the world, and you’ll become the wealthiest person in Alaska. Use a variety of specialist machines to find as much gold as you can.

Mining equipment

Sit behind the wheel of multiple vehicles such as excavator, drill, front-end loader, bulldozer, and others. The whole gold mining operation depends on your operating skills!

Realistic mining process

Keep improving your gold mining business. Start with a simple bucket and a hog pan, lease your first claim, and upgrade it to next tiers, as you begin to dig gold.

Failures & repairs

Experience the challenging life of a chief mechanic. Various parts of machines can break when least expected and cost you big time.

Four seasons cycle

Experience harsh Alaskan Winter and get excited about new gold mining season with the first Spring breeze. Prices and items durability change throughout the year. Extreme temperatures can also harm your gold mining business.

Highly detailed machines

Admire highly detailed vehicles and gold mining machines. Purchase new and more efficient wash plant parts to increase your earnings.

4 unique claims

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.

Pressure & power system

Manage both water and electrical power usage. If the demand for power or water in the network is greater than supply, the machines will stop working. 

Blacksmith & magnetite system

Visit the blacksmith to smelt all the gold you’ve dug. Take advantage of the collected magnetite to upgrade the blacksmith equipment to make the smelting cheaper, faster, and lossless.
