Aground Early Access Launch Day!

The early access version of Aground is now available on Steam and! Join us on Discord, Reddit, Facebook or Twitter today for some launch day festivities!

It has been a wild ride getting to this point - from the initial prototype over a year ago, an underwhelming reception to the early versions, to an incredibly enthusiastic response to the browser version, an amazing crowdfunding campaign, and update after update of new content and improvements.

And - hopefully - this is just the beginning of Aground’s story!

The early access version includes new quests, vehicles, enemies and areas not in the demo version. And we still have a ton of exciting content left to add before the game is complete.

We are also pleased to share that a new member has been added to the Aground team! Megan has joined us to help out with social media and marketing. Together we’re working hard to spread the word about the game!

Update 1.4.0 is now Live!

This update includes lots of new content for the early access version (see above), but we also included an update to the free version too! This update includes swimming and many small improvements and tweaks to the game. As a big thank you to Armor Games, Kongregate and Newgrounds who helped us get to this point, we also added a few secrets and specials on those sites - can you find them all?

I hope you enjoy the early access version and demo updates! And if you played the game, help show your support by writing a review or posting a screenshot! I hope you’re looking forward to the magic path update, which will include the magic path between the demo and outer space!


  • Congratulations on the launch David and team! Couldn't be happy for you and so glad to be involved with and supporting the growth of your modding community. I'm looking forward to see what your players create.
  • I downloaded the game but am unable to extract the application file. All the other files extract. I have Windows 10.
  • That's usually an anti-virus trying to protect you from downloading executable files from the internet. You'll have to figure out how to allow it based on your antivirus, or use Steam (which, as long as that installs, can install games from the internet no problem).
  • Cool, thanks David, I will give Steam a shot.
  • If you are using the or steam client, it should update automatically. If you manually downloaded and extracted the game from, you have to manually download the update .zip file (from your downloads page in and extract it where you installed the game.
