Play Animal Crossing at the correct speed

  • When "Animal Crossing: New Horizons" was first released in March, players spent hours improving and transforming the island. New Horizons is an easy to binge game, especially if you spend time traveling and Animal Crossing Bells to get resources faster. When the game debuted, it took me hours (days) to perfect my island. But as time goes by, the time I spend on games every day gradually decreases. Five months later, life on the island slowed down.

    After the climax of building, terrain modification and collection for the first time, the urge to play for several hours has been reduced. Now, logging in means I can go around the island, view the latest information in the store, and search for items generated daily. Sometimes, I still spend hours fishing, gardening or rearranging furniture. But compared to before, his attraction to me has diminished.

    Animal Crossing's franchise has always been a part of capturing life and spending time building houses and communities. The earliest "Animal Crossing" game was released for GameCube in 2001. There is no need to wait. All the facilities in the town have been established, which means that players can directly engage in daily small tasks.

    Using time travel, New Horizons can be satisfied. Even if there is no time travel, the game will inspire a mentality of completionism. The museum requires players to capture every kind of wildlife that appears every month. However, it takes time to complete the construction of the museum, and the distribution of time varies with the seasons, so travel is important. Fortunately, if you miss seasonal events or creatures, they will reappear next year and a break will not trigger any serious consequences.

    In previous versions, Animal Crossing would punish the player by letting the villagers leave if the player got the game into trouble. The mechanism by which weeds flood the town remains unchanged, but "New Horizons" keeps villagers here. Until you allow them to move, this means that reducing the frequency of your login will not have serious consequences. Players can move forward at their own pace. There are still many incentives for you to spend a lot of time on the island. The game grows at a jog speed. New Horizon has less room for defeat and victory, but an experience of continuous development.

    New Horizons is an experience worth trying. Players are creating their own way of playing. Seasonal updates mean new features, such as swimming in the ocean. You must find a way to buy swimsuits with ACNH Bells. Their features provide players with more ways to explore, not just achievements. Animal crossing is a journey worth experiencing.
