Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a game that center around creativity. The game gives players a variety of different tools to build and shape your island into exactly how you want, and the terraforming tools in particular have led to some truly great creations. As a result, the game has maintained a very creative fanbase ever since launch, so it shouldn't be too much of a surprise that the community has been using the game's tools to create full on game shows and obstacle courses out of entire islands.
In a new article by Twinfinite, several Animal Crossing creators have shared their competitive game modes that are breathing new life into the title. For example, YouTuber Crunchy Island capitalized on the popularity of certain villagers by having a bunch of the game's creators race through an intricately designed maze for the chance to befriend fan-favorite villager Raymond.
If that's not complex enough for you, why not check out YouTuber EJ Plays creation called Last Crosser Standing. Inspired by watching Survivor on CBS at the start of the pandemic, Last Crosser Standing has players compete in group challenges to earn safety from being voted off the show. The entire island had been transformed to accomodate certain areas for specific challenges and there's even a place where players vote for who to kick out. It's like Big Brother, but with a lot less drama.
It's not all competitive though, as YouTuber Truongy also shared their Lost Race series which was originally a single-player obstacle course. Similar to the first example, Truongy has created an intricate maze for two teams of three to collect and protect Jacob's Ladders, forcing players to work together to find more flowers than the opposition under a time limit.
There are plenty of other examples included in Twinfinite's article, as well as quotes from the YouTuber's themselves detailing their creations as well as their inspirations. Who knows, maybe they've inspired you to go and create your own game mode? Or maybe just go and visit your abandoned villagers, they all miss you very much.
