About Animal Crossing
Animal Crossing, also known as Animal Crossing: Population: Growing!, is the US and PAL version of Animal Forest+. Developed solely for the Nintendo GameCube, the game is notable as the first game in the Animal Crossing series to reach nations outside Japan. Animal Crossing was soon re-released as a Player’s Choice title as a result of its high sales.
In this game players assume the role of a human boy or girl setting out for a life of their own in a small randomly generated town. As each town is different, this ensures that no two players’ experiences are exactly the same. Players can pick fruit, grow trees, garden, hunt for fossils, fish, catch insects, do favors for the villagers, decorate their homes, and perform other such tasks.
The game designers declined to create an overarching plot, instead allowing players to have full control over their own life and play indefinitely. Time passes as it does in the real world. For example, if the game is played during December, it will be winter. Holidays and special events usually mirror real-world equivalents and often occur on the same days. Sometimes, late into the night or in the early hours of the morning, villagers accidentally fall asleep outside but standing up.
