Put a happy home designer in Animal Crossing: The New Horizon

So, unlike most people, I actually played Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer. I don’t blame those who didn’t — it’s a weird little spin-off that petals pretty fast and lacks much of the liveliness of Animal Crossing itself, but … well … something special Sometimes it’s all the same.

Sure, I played Happy Home Designer Paid NS. In the old days Review for Guardian, And this is what I had to say:

“This is an otherwise excellent Animal Crossing: a significant improvement over the design elements of the New Reef home, with more, more options and more features. With a stylus. A top-down grid that you can select, drop, and rotate. “

But unfortunately, the home decor aspect without the life simulation aspect gets a little boring after a while:

“Like the large number of Grand Designs, Happy Home Designers really don’t know what they want and are suffering from it. Probably can’t be the latest Animal Crossing. Too small. It’s pretty good, if simple. It’s a home decorating game, but not as a complete standalone release. It’s a lifeless life simulator.

If this was an episode of Grand Designs and I was Kevin McCloud, I would turn to the camera right now and say, “Well, that’s not what we all wanted, but … I’m sure it will work.” .. Roll your eyes. Roll back credits. “

(Don’t worry too much about everything Grand Designs reference. I was looking for a theme. )

In summary, Happy Home Designer was a test site for New Horizons’ significantly improved home decor, but was also retrofitted to Animal Crossing: Happy Home. And like HHD, ACNH is almost entirely focused on the interior design side, not much on the life simulation side. This is part of the reason why so many people are a little annoyed by the game almost two years after its launch.

But here’s an idea: Animal Crossing: What if you get the abilities of a happy home designer in New Horizons?

Earlier today, when I was writing the article “What do you want to see from Animal Crossing Direct?”, Some people were talking online about how much they wanted to decorate the homes of other villagers.I didn’t do it either Consideration Idea, until suddenly Everything I can think of..

Skull Moon!Everyone wants a skull moon
Skull Moon!Everyone wants a skull moon

Imagine one day Tom Nook started talking to you about his companions. They used to do business together, but now their companions want to move to this gorgeous island paradise and build a store again. The name of that companion? Lyle. What is his job? Decorate the house.

But your home is already decorated … so what is his job? Decorate other people’s homes. finally.I visited the villagers’ homes enough to know that they absolutely have a sense of style Pants, And I would have given something to help my starter villagers get something a little better than their starter house. Also, I keep giving Kyle’s instruments and he keeps them in stupid places like stupid guys. Let me help you, my sweet, stupid friend.

Kyle, you are such a Himbo.I love you but let me help
Kyle, you are such a Himbo.I love you but let me help

So Lyle and Lotti move into town, and maybe even Isabel’s brother Digby, they help you destroy and build other people’s homes inside out. Maybe you can even add a room to the villager’s house. Because we all have too much money to spend! I can pay someone else’s mortgage! I’m loaded and generous!

Animal Crossing: I know people are looking for a more imminent addition to New Horizons, and I understand that — and I agree. I want to see more fish, insects and furniture. But imagine how much this would be a game changer — the ability to decorate every home on the island! Uses of all the furniture we have stored! And best of all, it’s a way to bring all other homes to an acceptable level!

What does “Kate, are you the one with control problems?” No, please shut up.

Diana, you're nice, but you live in the bathroom. come.
Diana, you’re nice, but you live in the bathroom. come.

Can you agree with me? Is this a good idea, and does it pull you back? Please tell me in the usual place!
