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.

You unequipped your pickaxe. Hit E to open the equipment window, then equip a pick axe and the camera will move down again (I'm going to add a message about this the first time someone does it by accident :P )

Great job.

The player is in the game doing cool things in a few seconds.
Controls are really intuitives.
Music is good.
Ambience is nice.

5 stars.

This game is crazy addictive.

My only issue is that I'm stuck on the two titanium quest because, like an idiot, I sold one before I got the quest and the drop rate from golems is torture.

davidmaletz responds:

Search underground in the science island. Everyone who goes back to the starting island and starts killing golems has this problem :P .

I died just trying to find the first 8 pieces of wood cause i was over my encumbrance load and losing health once i ran out of stamina.... Then on my second try I realized ive played and beaten this before. Great game.

Amaizing game Great graphics ,good gameplay and good story but there is 1 issue i encountered:so when i got the alter crystals i thought it wuld be a good idea to turn my dragon into a armor,and like a idiot i didint get another fire stone
so i continued and i got stuck on the starter island

and i didint build a dock yet

anyway cant wait for more updates this game is amaizing

davidmaletz responds:

You can transform your armor back into a dragon by selecting the armor and hitting transform. The only downside is it'll require another alter gem to re-transform.
