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: https://davidmaletz.newgrounds.com/news/

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 the first few islands, but we have lots of plans for expansion, and the sky is literally not the limit. We’re continuing updates in Early Access ( https://store.steampowered.com/app/876650/Aground/ ) as we add more content and the first spaceship!

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 ( https://www.reddit.com/r/aground/ ) or discord ( https://discord.gg/69Jj6MB ) 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).

Tips/Tricks: https://www.reddit.com/r/aground/comments/76lpfp/aground_tips_tricks/

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.

Depth. Not just mining, but the entire game. Theres more to do than you first expect, places to go, people to z. As a free web game it's easily among the best, but with the thought of it being an unfinished game it kinda drops the will to continue on for too long in the game, as I know I'll be starting all over again. Even with the ability to transfer saves, the game might change before its full release. Stats might be rebalanced, story elements altered, new enemies to see that wont matter to a player further ahead in the game, etc.

Regardless, this was a very generous demo. Hope I don't ever have to mine this game up from unfinished hell.

good game,good pixel game.

I love this game so much.
I just,,,
Sometimes it gets a bit agitating when your sprite goes further than you want them to (like, when they continue moving after you take your finger off the arrow key), but like still this is so great and it might just be a computer error rather than something that is at fault of the game lol
Good job creating this!!!
It's amazing so far, and I'm sure you can only make it better!

Help my save disappeared, how can i retrieve it ty

davidmaletz responds:

Saves are in the local browser storage unless you exported the save or used Aground Cloud. This means you must play on the same computer in the same browser as before. If you cleared browser history or were using incognito, then the saves are gone for good, but you can ask someone for a save at a similar point in the game.

Hey, I had quite a lot of progress on my aground account, but I seem to have forgotten my password and username, is there anyway to recover them?

davidmaletz responds:

Sure, if you remember what e-mail you used, there's a reset password link on the page you created your account: http://fancyfishgames.com/Aground/CreateAccount.php?forgot=pass . Let me know if that works!
