Aground is an easily accessible, but surprisingly deep 2D pixel art survival game that sees you mining, crafting, building, making friends and expanding your colony after being shipwrecked on an uninhabited island.
After first washing up on the desert island of Aground, you may be forgiven for thinking it’s a simple mining and crafting game, but thankfully there’s a lot more beneath the surface as you dig into it. You start by gathering basic resources and crafting items and structures to help you survive, but the fact that Aground draws inspiration from A Dark Room should be your first hint that there’s a lot more to it than meets the eye.
As you progress you’ll find survivors and welcome them into your settlement, research advanced technology, learn magic, ride dragons, discover new islands and even launch into space. You’ll build your settlement from a ramshackle hut into a thriving colony, all the while with the looming threat of confronting the threat that caused you to wash up on the island in the first place.
It’s a very addictive game where a new mind blowing discovery is just around the corner. The original free version of Aground was released last year and since then the devs have been hard at work fleshing it out with upgraded visuals and all manner of extra content.
