One player of Animal Crossing: New Horizons has produced a gruesome scene that gives the impression that killer crabs have landed on their island.
While most players in Animal Crossing: New Horizons have made their islands into adorably adorable and welcoming spaces, one has chosen to take a more macabre approach in one small area. Further intriguing discoveries that offer fresh approaches to playing the game or customizing the island as players learn additional strategies that keep Animal Crossing: New Horizons alive will be uncovered.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons was released about three years ago, but the fact that a handbook is just being released shows how popular it continues to be. Since the game’s release in March 2020, inventive players have come up with various methods to decorate their islands, giving each one a unique vibe compared to other islands’ decorations in terms of both the big picture and the finer details.
One such player, ShadisNOTAmused, has taken one of the little aspects of their island on a peculiar yet macabre path, as can be seen above. On the beach, a skeleton is concealed among enormous crabs and paint splatters that resemble blood. The player character is grinning as they stand among the crabs. The sight is distressing for a game as family-friendly as Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Still, as it is a decorative set piece, it is also entertaining in a creepy sense.
People who responded to the image had fun with it, as evidenced by the top comment about the renowned pilot who had vanished, Amelia Earhart. Others questioned how the scene was created, and ShadisNOTAmused responded by identifying the figures as spider crabs and offering the design code to anyone who wished to utilize it. Although the Snowboy band, created by another Animal Crossing: New Horizons player, is thematically more adorable, it is still a lot of fun to show a scene in which spider crabs are believed to have killed a person.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons continues to be a top seller for Nintendo partly because of scenes like the one made by ShadisNOTAmused that showcase the game’s creative possibilities. There are undoubtedly a lot of unexplored possibilities, regardless of whether one wants to take their town cutely by making it a cozy and welcoming environment that is soothing to exist in or go in the opposite direction by making the village a hilarious horror show.
On the Nintendo Switch, Animal Crossing: New Horizons is now available.
