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.


Its easy to die you can make a easy dificulty on the game pls?

Loving this game, nice and old school with a new direction of subtle post apocalyptic building and survival.

I Love this game Good job! (: but i have one gripe, it tells you the sell value of dragonblood, but you cant sell it! (if there is then please tell me)

There is no merchant currently who will buy dragonblood... but there will be.

absolutely fantastic. This really shows a lot of passion and thought and feels like a much more satisfying and focused Terraria even in this demo version. This game now joins the ranks of Rebuild, Super Hot, and CrossCode on the list of games i've seen on this site for free that i would gladly throw money at.

People find this review helpful!

I love this game, but I have a problem : I can't sync my save anymore ! It's saying "sync failed" everytime I try (even if I logout and login back). Can you please help me I don't want to lose my save file if anything goes wrong... I'll be very thankful ! Aside that I LOVE your game so much !! One of the best games I ever played on Newgrounds, so keep Up the very good work :D !!

davidmaletz responds:

The Sync Failed error usually occurs when there's a network error, you can open the console using F12 on most browsers and PM/email me what it says. You can also export your saves using the option menu on the title page, so if something goes wrong you'll have that .asav file to import later.
