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?

Survival is only the beginning. The only way for humanity to have a future is to return to the stars and confront them. But, it will require a lot of ingenuity and help to recover everything that was lost, and even that might not be enough...

Aground is a Mining/Crafting RPG, where there is an overarching goal, story and reason to craft and build. As you progress, you will meet new NPCs, unlock new technology, and maybe magic too. Will you be able to raise dragons? Launch into space? The sky is literally not the limit. Beneath its simple exterior, Aground hides a lot of depth and surprises that will keep you wondering “what’s next?”

We've been continually improving and expanding Aground while in Early Access thanks to player feedback - feel free to join us on our journey by leaving feedback and chatting in our Discord Server!

Pls put more stuff into demo, the demo is pretty boring even during the weird eastern island with the wyrm nest and the boss. 

If you have any reasons that do not let you do this, or you simply dont want to, I will not push any further.

I respect your time and so i will not spam. 

Sincerely, ( redacted )

That is piracy - please don't ask, and anyone who supplies a pirate link here will be banned. Aground took over 3 years to make, and asking for it for free feels like you don't respect the time and effort I put into making the game.

I am really sorry for that I really do appreciate your time and effort.

i remember playing this in the early covid times, I absolutely loved it, this is much a massive demo, the best browser game!


I remember playing the first three islands on Kongregate back in 2018. I thought it was perfect then, but somehow it's become a million times better. The whole vibe of how magic works in this game is ,like, my favorite thing ever. and the way you can combine it with technology? Legit, before I first played this game I used to complain that there weren't any good stories that really combined fantasy and scifi and made it feel like both.

i killed the kitchen guy by not letting him in so i had to buy the kitchen blueprints

how do you kill the dragon?

nevermind i used the shotgun and ran 

what is the difference between the paid version and the free version


The free version is the demo - it includes the first 3 islands. The paid version has a lot more content (about 4x the length), and multiplayer.


I know that, because I completed the demo-it took me 3 days and 4 something hours!!! At the end of the demo you find out about the others planets and Unoiks 428 or something like that. Then it shows you the credits. I was really sad because I wanted to play the rest of the game. I'm only 10 so I could not buy the full game. I wish it was free, although great game!!!😄


I think you have to be 13+ to have an account....


can i get  my money back i bought this a year ago

Probably not

Hey How do you get the blueprint for the Wrym pen

Give the alchemist the dragonblood, just follow the alchemist's quests and you'll get two

how do you get pet dragean

Same question. I don't know how to and I killed the dragon.

(1 edit)

You get a fire thingy-it looks like a round fire like ball with flames on the top. Oh! An Fire Gem.

You can still get a pet dragon - you just have to raise one. Talk to the alchemist and complete his quests, and take note of what he says about feeding the wyrms in the wyrm pen.

I did, I completed the wyrm pen quest.

Oh and, how specifically do you raise a dragon?

Feed a wyrm in the cage until it's full - it will turn into a cocoon and eventually become a baby dragon.

Hello, this game is incredible, but I have the full version and I've been waiting for an update for a long time.

If you have version 2.1.1b (you'll see the version number on the title screen), then you have the latest version (and we're not currently planning any future content updates). If not, go to your downloads page on and you'll find the latest version there (it should auto-update if you're using the client, otherwise you have to re-download the update manually).

Look for Aground Zero, coming out sometime later!

im just waiting  to arrive my pc


this game is my sunshine

this is my favorite game


can you make free 

The following reply is from my own observations, and nothing the developers have said. Sadly, Aground can't be made free. That's not to say it may never happen, Fancy Fish Games has grown a lot since it's initial beta  of Aground, back in 2018. Since then they have taken on a pretty big workload, including Aground Zero, which you can view additional information on Steam. If Aground was free, there would be no income to pay rent or the programmers or other overhead costs that make these games possible. This is why my review site always buys the titles we give away, to help support the developers.

Speaking of my review site, were working on a huge server overhaul, and have plans once we're up again on raffling some of the top multiplayer sandbox titles, such as Aground. When this happens, I suggest entering when we do our draws. Only rule my site has, your not allowed to sell the prizes. They must be used on the account that has won them, and activated immediately. Otherwise they do get revoked and never replaced. My site and raffles are not related nor supported by Fancy Fish Games in any way.

Previously I had logged in to the mods section of the game with a account, then I logged out, but the mod list was still there, I tried deleting the game and then reinstalling the mod, it's still there, the mods folder doesn't even have any mod files, how about how to remove it?

The mods used to be in the game folder, but now they are in %APPDATA%\Fancy Fish Games\Aground\.modio - try deleting that folder.

big thanks, it works the mod are removed

is there another website i can play this game because my school blocked all the games but not the website


Don't play at school, but there is a demo at the top



hermoso juego! me la pasé muy bien estas últimas 3 semanas antes de terminar la demo, pero tengo dudas con respecto a la historia: ¿cual era el propósito del dragón? ¿y la gema del dragón?

está todo muy hermoso en el juego, pasé horas entretenida, pero hay algunos diálogos que no están traducidos al español y no pude entender algunas cosas...

good game my favorite but i finish the demo

Then buy the full game maybe?


Wow! Nice Game! Great art too!


i like it i remember i used to play it on an ‘unblocked’ site but then it got blocked so I am happy to see i can play it again.


I remember when this was free the good ol' days ;(


The browser version/demo is still free - and has all of the content you remember from the free version. The full version just has a lot MORE content after the end of the "demo."


will there be a full game browser version? but you still have to pay


No, the demo already pushes the limits of what can run in a browser without too much lag. However, if you want a browser version to play on a Chromebook, you can actually get the linux version running on chromebooks with linux beta.


But how can I play on a school Chromebook? is there such as paying ingame and going to a site with the file and you have to log in to check if you have paid? then you can play

There is no way to play the full version on a school chromebook unfortunately (unless the school chromebook allows you to install linux apps on it).

Please, don't play at school unless you are allowed to.

btw what are some fun things u can do when u finish the demo

i have files with this game,  but im not sure its full version, you can say one think who dont have demo?

Suv/Jeep, spaceships, pirate, cultivator and divider islands, otherwise the heights, and too much more

thank thank

Can you make a mobile version eventuially? 


what program do i need to use it on Chromebook


when will they be able to free the full version?

Ícono de validado por la comunidad

wow I remember playing the demo on kongregate for the weekly Kongpanion I never played the other games to get it because Aground was so fun!! I am so glad I found to website because I loved playing on pc but adobe shut down so I can't play it on kong any more oh well playing on the xbox is supper fun

I unfortunately will not be able to get the full game, but thank you! The demo is like a full game in itself! Most developers make a small short demo that you can play for ~10 minutes, but this is game you can play for days on end! Thank you!

im going to


t is

what about ps4 it is not on there


Aground launched on PS4 on February 11th - same time as switch and xbox:


I have a question , Is the demo gonna get updates or that's it for the demo if we excluded bug fixes

(2 edits)

Just asking for a friend

....................... Or few

We're not adding new content to the demo, it already has a lot compared to most demos. But it will continue to get bugfixes.

Picked it up yesterday on Switch and I've played for several hours already. Then I found out I could get it here, so did that as well. I'm really enjoying it.

IKR , it is fun

After sending that, I started playing a new game on my computer (I wonder if save syncing will be allowed across consoles as well as computers? Or is it already and I missed it?) and was up until 2:30 this morning, only going to bed because I was making mistakes. 


I beat the demo 


just gotta remember

i am bored cause i don't know wat to do next

Follow the quests and when you finish all of them Complete achievements

how did u get it?!

i had full dragon gear then... 

my dad cleared the cashe and i lost it all
