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.


A super good game! I love the art, the mechanics, the gameplay!
Sometimes the back and forth between mines and the above is a little bit of a hassel, however some items help a lot with that.
I feel like there could be more enemies but maybe im not far enough into the game...
I really like all the characters and there personalities but mostly how they actually do things! The miner actually mines, the hunter kills boars who get near, its awseom!!!

The site is not giving me 9 of the medals.

I'll admit that I was a bit frustrated when you spam tagged me and other people but than I looked at my own situation and how hard it is as a struggling artist to get people to notice you and the passion you put out. So I decided to come over and check you out.

This is good, I have to give you props. This game has a great nostalgia feel to it. I love pixel art and pixel games. This is pretty fun and the feel of it is pretty good. I like the overall color. You really did great.

Great game, Quality, Content. Not much could make this game better a side kick maybe other than the wolf or multiple player maybe I don't know it all works so perfectly already. haven't finished yet but I will. I love making burgers to sell and that drill boyee like butter Haha! making a chainsaw next I hope its a weapon. I'm surprised this is not a finished product; great work. Thank you.

Love this game. The time I bet with it is cool, doesn't take too long and is fun to play.
Like zumokiworks335 already stated, the mine carts don't make sense.
Although I can load the ore there and don't have to cary them manually, rail tracks can't be laid horizontally; which in a sense doesn't make sense, if the character can walk up and down without any special reason, why can't he fill holes and lay tracks with the same logic?

This is very important because if I only lay the tracks vertically, then how am I going to reach the surface?

Nevertheless I love this game.
