Dale Culp Says: As I play "Miner Dig Deep," I can't help but wonder what ol' Tennessee Ernie Ford would think of this community game on Xbox Live. Just what do you get for loading 16 tons? Well, I'll tell you what I got… I got a lesson on the work habits of the petite bourgeois, that's what.
Work harder, earn more; greater risk, greater reward. That seems to be the overall lesson of "Miner Dig Deep" as I push further into the earth in the pursuit of more valuable material to sell at the store. It's kind of a modern day parable on consumerism, entrepreneurship and The American Dream. Of course, I'm sure this wasn't what the developers had in mind at all while they made the game, it's just something that occurred to me while I played it.
