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.


This is a pretty good flash game and whilst its not as revolutionary as the saga of the dead series its pretty good. its the best open world 2d game i have seen since terraria and the fact that its a flash game is even better. the music though is not the best since its pretty much one looping song all the way through and unlike the first road of the dead game where it has one long looping gameplay song which you wont notice its looping since of the games fast paced gameplay the slow and relaxing gameplay of this makes the lack of music very noticable. the graphics are pretty decent and the framerate is steady. the slow paced gameplay is quite relaxing and fun. overall a pretty good game

The game is awesome! It's simple, and the upgrade system of the character is well made, too. Looking forward to developing the game further.
Can you just tell if at this point some actions can be performed with the baby dragon? There is nothing to feed them with, and once I collect them, other than selling, I can't think of anything.

Nothing yet... but we have plans for the future, so you may not want to sell them!

I wasn't expecting this to be my type of game, but I really got hooked on it very quickly. Highly enjoyable. Unfortunately, the Setting Sail medal never unlocked for me after building the boat, even after reloading the page and the game. Also, where do I find cocoons?

davidmaletz responds:

I'm glad you enjoyed the game! The setting sail medal is unlocked on your profile, maybe it just took some time for Newgrounds to add it?

Cocoons are created in the Wyrm Pen - you'll need to complete the Alchemist's second quest to get it.

Loved it. It's like motherload but with trade and story.
