One of the last human survivors, you find yourself stranded on an uninhabited island. With a few other victims of the crash, can you craft, mine, and build your way to survival?

Updates can be seen in my news feed:

Aground was designed around the theme of Progression, and inspired by Utopian Mining and other mining/crafting games. You start out with almost nothing, and you can eventually build your way up to a thriving settlement.

Currently, you can only explore and build on your starting island, but we have lots of plans for expansion, and the sky is literally not the limit.

We're planning to continue developing Aground based on feedback and suggestions from players, so definitely send me a message or post in our subreddit ( ) or discord ( ) to determine the course of this game.

Controls are explained in game, and it can be played with keyboard or gamepad. The mouse can also be used to navigate menus (but is not required).


For players who want to play on multiple computers/versions of the game: Save files can be exported from the Options menu on the title page and imported by dragging and dropping the save file into the game.

I thought this game was amazing, it was really fun and addictive and i hope you add more or a squeal because i would definitely play it. Yet I beat this game in one day it still served its purpose for entertaining me and giving me a good time.

This game is amazing and incredibly addictive! I look forward to future updates and eventually a squeal. However, I wish you could do more than slay the dragon. Call me a softy, but it's not something I enjoyed doing and I only did it to see what it would drop. Perhaps you could have the option to tame it in a future update? Just wondering.

I've been considering ways to tame the dragon. It'll have to be difficult, but I think a peaceful approach to beating the boss (and future bosses) could be interesting. Thanks for the suggestion, and I'm glad you enjoyed the game!

This is very good! i love the simplistic design fast paced yet even out game play and the music is very calming yet motivating and it makes it even better that there is so much to explore and so many new people to meet love it

So much fun! Got lost in good times and really passed the time by! If you enjoy crafting, scaving this is definitely for you! Cannot wait for the next big update!
