Minethings is a browser based game set on earth in the year 4024. It is owned and run by Japhet. Players start with a starter mine which will excavate an item at a rate of around 3 per day, though this can be improved dramatically by purchasing equipment and extra mines. Items range from Meld Items and Weapons to Vehicles and Explosives - and more.

Once a player reaches 10 melds they can choose a Profession to aid them in making gold and finding items. At 15 melds players can use Gadgets, and at 20 melds players can use Ships.
