Mining Quest is a game where you dig and find treasures, along with monsters. The enemy fighting is like an RPG. Its not an endless sandbox game where you can mine for as long as you want, like Minecraft. This game has a story.
Miner Man was digging in the mines. He heard a glistening sound behind some rocks, so he took his pickaxe out and mined the rocks. There was a Legendary Emerald behind the rocks! Miner Man attempted to mine it and he failed. Suddenly, Ttam (Miner Man's enemy) appeared. He stole the Legendary Emerald and shot some weird bomb at Miner Man, and he fell asleep.
Miner Man woke up looks around. He isn't familiar with the place, so he asks some villagers where he can stay. They say they will build a house, as long as they have got wood and bricks. Miner Man puts on his mining helmet and equips a pickaxe, and off he goes to the mine.
Miner Man is one of the main characters. He can be customized. He uses a pickaxe to dig down underground and find treasures. If he encounters an enemy he equips a sword that he finds on the ground. Once you get a Quartz Crystal you can team up with a new character that is to be announced. His real name is revealed at the end of the game.
Bluey is a character who wears blue, hence his nickname. No one knows his real name. He can be unlocked by giving him one Quartz Crystal. Once you do that, he can use his bow and arrow to attack enemies.
Joe is a character who knows how to create potions. He can make three potions before you unlock him. They are: Healing (Red), Stamina (Blue), Invincibility (Yellow). He can also just give you milk to heal a bit. To unlock him, you must give him one ruby, two sapphire, three emerald, and four amethyst. He can be unlocked pretty late in the game, but if your lucky you can get him before Bluey. He mainly attacks using magic spells. The spells can be quite useful, but he doesn't have his healing potions or stamina potions.
Ttam is Miner Man's enemy, and the main villain of the game. In the opening he puts Miner Man to sleep so he can take him to another world. He did this due to all the treasure he wanted. His right eye is also gone for some reason. He says it is his secret in the last cutscene.
The Mayor of the town Miner Man woke up in. He says he "can't" join your party because he's too busy being fancy. After the first cutscene, he says that Miner Man qualifies for the "fancy" person of the week. He can give you information although, so he's not 100% fancy!
Green is Bluey's older brother. He is training to become a knight. He still knows alot about skills. Bring him gemstones for sword specials. He's also bald, like Miner Man.
Purple Spirit uses not much attacks, but has alot of defense. You have to hit his head to do damage.
