Animal Crossiversary

One year ago, when the COVID-19 restrictions had just started, Animal Crossing:New Horizons was released. I had pre-ordered and pre-downloaded it for our Switch, and it was the evening of March 20th when I stepped into that sea airplane to go on the ‘uninhabited island package’. Lots of people have written about how people visited each others’ islands and how overnight a whole community had sprung up around the game, so I don’t have to talk about that. Since then, lots of people have stopped playing — but not us. We even celebrated the new year in the game, with a friend visiting to see the count-down on our village square.

Every day, we do the rounds on our island. The days of hardcore fishing or bug-hunting are behind us, but it’s just nice and relaxing to fire up the game and walk around for a bit. Yesterday was our 365th day on the island.
