About us

Hello, we are happy about your interest!

We are a small but very dedicated Indie Studio from Germany. The basic idea for a gold mining simulator was originally born in May 2017, and what followed was a lot of further ideas, concepts and of course a lot of work.

For various reasons, we then interrupted the development of the game for some time and resumed it in early 2019. New ideas were developed and the “Gold Hunter” project was born. In the course of this we decided to use the “Unreal Engine” as development platform and a lot of code lines were written.

For example, we have created a mining world with a size of 81 km². There you will not only find many different ways to mine gold, but there is also enough space for several players to mine gold at the same time.

Yeah, you heard right, there will also be a multiplayer mode!

About the game

Have you always dreamed of searching for gold and moving big machines? Then you can now show what you are made of and grow beyond yourself.

With this game we will bring you closer to the search for gold. So be ready for a unique experience that you will never forget.

Every beginning is hard, but you will learn quickly and benefit from it. The only thing you have to do is to find the gold.

Your time has come – are you ready?
