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. We’re continuing updates in Early Access ( https://store.steampowered.com/app/876650/Aground/ ) as we add more content and the first spaceship!

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.


Blows my mind!!! I have played this game everyday starting from scratch and always discover new things and new ways to do things, each time progressing more and more.. only to.. (spoilers) start anew again. Exploring is always so much fun and a little nerve-wracking for a safe-er like me, but it's awesome to go ahead and see what's beyond!

I will continue to play this game as long as I can and find all (almost all) of its secrets.

Also really cool to see it being updated, still. I had talked to my brother about this game, where had heard of it and played it months ago, and I found it recently. Nice to see new things being added, and problems patched up.

That's awesome!! I'm glad you're enjoying the game so much and always finding new secrets! I wonder if you'll find them all...

This game is awesome, but how do you activate the big robot/golem at the bottom of the ground.

Great game! But the music didn't kick for a good 15 min for me and it almost felt kinda laggy, I guess that's the best you can expect for a browser game though.

god i LOVE this game its top notch. i have over 15 hours in on one character. its fucking awsome how you can literaly fly island to island on a dragon or if you have the dragon armor this game just gets better and better with each update.

This game is very well done, it feels great, controls are smooth

My only negative thoughts are 1, I wish we moved slightly faster at base Speed, 2, I wish there was a way to disable AutoEat(sometimes I just want to die), and 3, how the hell do I de-aggro the Adult Dragon? I accidentally hit it with an arrow and now I can't call the Alchemist

davidmaletz responds:

Speed is intentionally slow until you get equipment or full speed potions. Auto eat can be disabled in the gameplay options menu (since 1.3.1a). The adult dragon will de-aggro after about 2 minutes if you're not close to it to re-aggro it, but you can kill the dragon and continue an alternate quest line that way to get your own dragon.
