Welcome To The Backyard

About Grounded

The world is a vast, beautiful and dangerous place – especially when you have been shrunk to the size of an ant. Explore, build and survive together in this multiplayer survival-adventure. Can you thrive alongside the hordes of giant insects, fighting to survive the perils of the backyard?

Solo or with friends – anytime! You can face the backyard alone or together, online, with up to three friends. Not only that, but with the Shared Worlds feature, you can continue to play in your shared world even if the original host is not on, with all your progression saving!

Meet The Kids


At first, Max may come off as just the typical charismatic class clown, but don't let his jokes and big personality fool you. This kid has a heart of gold and knows the true value of friendship. Never one to leave a friend hanging, he is always there when needed and usually has a smart remark ready for any situation he comes across.

Base Building

Shelter and tools are critical to your survival. Build epic bases to protect you and your stuff from the insects and the elements. Craft weapons, tools, and armor, allowing you to better fight, explore and survive.

However, nowhere is safe – not even your base. Creatures can be found roaming the yard in a multitude of environments, such as the depths of the pond, the caverns of the termite den, and even the sweltering heat found in the sandbox. The more you interfere with the creatures in the yard, the higher the chance that they come knocking at your own door, so you better prepare.
