Traces of Past Crossings. ⇒

Has anyone played the game Animal Crossing? It sounds bizarre. This link was found via Kottke.org.

This is a post from my link log: If you click the title of this post you will be taken the web page I am discussing.

  1. It captured some of my friends a while ago. It’s really kind of weird. It’s an immersive world that occurs in real-time. It uses the gamecube clock to maintain a world that runs even when you’re not there. You build a little house in a town, and you have neighbours who you need to talk to and keep happy and interact with. Certain things happen only at certain times, say for example, there’s a sale at a certain shop that sells furniture for your home, if you don’t play the game at the specified time, you don’t get to go to the sale. That kind of thing. I had no idea that it would be this memory-driven though, I kind of find it endearing.

  2. I know, it sounds amazing. I’ll have to look for it next time I am at EB.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

 
Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
