Aground from Fancy Fish Games / SnöBox Studio and publisher Whitethorn Digital, a crafting RPG that steadily grows more complex has left Early Access. Starting off originally as a free web game, millions of plays later they turned it into a full game while keeping the web build as a sort-of old demo.
"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?'"
This is actually the fifth commercial title from Fancy Fish Games, all of them supporting Linux. Check out their release trailer for Aground below:
Some of the features to expect include mining, structure building, crafting, combat, farming, cooking, befriending NPCs (or not), magic and technology discovering, dragon raising, a character levelling system and a whole lot more. It's a game that has a lot crammed into what initial appears to be a simple package but the look is quite deceptive. The launch build comes with some fun additions like cross-platform (Linux, macOS, Windows) online multiplayer, more translations, modding support and more.
