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. Check out our Kickstarter ( http://kck.st/2rSTnGZ ) to support these expansions!

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).

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.


At first this game seemed like it would be just another Minecraft rip off, but i found lots of the new game mechanics very enjoyable. However, some of the mechanics seemed very tedious and took away some from my enjoyment such as the stamina bar being drained by every movement. Although I guess it could be argued that it is drained so quickly to encourage leveling up, I didn't like.

All in all, Great game and I find myself coming back to my favorites to play it very often.

Its good. A fine and addictive idea, however the balancing is all over the place. Enemy spawnrate is way too high with no way to ignore them, they kill you way too easy and you can focus too many skillpoints on other things other than fighting and be stuck.

Sleeping doesn't regen your health (bad idea) and there is no continues, you go on from your last save. This isn't Super Metroid, i know that its to add tension to the idea that you HAVE to focus on survival but if you make a game in which dying is so easy if you dont try your best to avoid it you have to add measures to make sure the player doesn't feel like if he's stuck in a unwinnable scenario or if its just not worth to keep trying to play.

Addictive, fun and surprisingly challenging. A+

I Expected This Game To Be Another Meh Game. But I Just Noticed That I've Been Playing For A Couple Of Hours :) This Game Is Actually Quite Good

An amazing survival game, though I had someone else's game save.
