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.


Probably one of my favorite games in recent memory. Not only does it have an interesting story, but the game play (and the amount of game play for this not being finished) is also phenomenal and reminds me of Terraria (but simpler, in a very good way). I'm excited to see what else you do to expand the current game, including what else happens after the 2 new endings with 1.1.2. My only super nitpicky critique is I wish leveling up had other benefits/challenges to it; it would make the game more complex/interesting if there were real limitations in the game play could only be passed by leveling up (other than increasing health and stamina) such as level specific armor, weapons, etc. That being said, the mining and trading aspects of the game are top notch (especially the mining), and I love the ease and pace of play. I didn't feel like I had to grind or collect at any point; I could just enjoy the pace and the diversity of the game. Like I said, there is so much to do already, and you still have game to make yet. Finally, I really enjoy both the graphics and the music. This game never became boring, and it is always interesting and fun to look at.

This is just an all around great title, and I can't wait for more. If you haven't played it yet, please do!

The early access release (of the first planet) is funded on Kickstarter, and should be available in June this year. We'll probably leave early access with all the planets I want late this year (or early 2019, depending how many features/planets we end up adding).

Love the game! I just wish I could reset achievement since I wasn't logged in at first and now I can't earn some of the beginning medals.

Maybe I missed this somewhere, but how do you build the kitchen? I can't seem to up my attack numbers or adequately stock up my boat...could use a bit of direction here. :/

FANTASTIC GAME! Sadly short tho but i mean i got hooked in for a solid 5 hours but then it was over ! one of the better flash games for sure when you do get the full game off the ground i hope we can use our current saves because i stock piled the living hell out of some of the rarer items thinking i would need to trade them for a quest only to be done

I'm glad you like the game! Saves will be transferable - just export them (title page -> options) or use Aground Cloud to sync them with the full version when it comes out!
