    What a wholesome game -- trusting a mysterious stranger with unrestricted use of your spare room and giving them an axe. Looks awesome, though.

    I really think animal crossing needs a good healthy competition like that, cause they've been kinda slacking with qol updates or adding more humor and text to the animals again, more sass as they use to have.

    Ok I knew within about 5 minutes that this is a game that I will definitely pick up. The visuals are right up my street. Good stuff!

      If they make this on switch I feel like this would be a truly relaxing game.. the art.. the noises ... its a game I feel like the game world needs with the world being the way it is

    As someone who doesn't have access to Animal Crossing I really enjoyed this. 😊


    This game already looks so awesome. I can't wait to play the early access. If the beta version plays like this imagine the fully polished version of this. So excited. Great video btw sharky. It's always a fun time watching you.

    The gameplay looks good ,but it's hard to be interested in playing it when the aesthetics give you the creeps. That's why every aspect of the game, from visuals to audio, is important.

    • Hào
      Hào 9 months ago +1

      agree with you, I care so much about visual aesthetics. The animals look like there are murderers inside the costume and the character's appearance isn't good at all. The way they were stylized from the first time I found looks much better than this

    • Usagi Felton
      Usagi Felton Year ago

      @Rodrigo Cáceres yeah there is a clear distinction between the styles, but they also had to kinda do their own thing with them. I don't see too much difference myself, though I hope they have a larger variety than has been shown for this game.

    • Rodrigo Cáceres
      Rodrigo Cáceres Year ago +1

      @Usagi Felton I personally see animal crossing characters with more charm and expression. I think it's a combination of many different elements, from height to the way that facial features are made.

    • Usagi Felton
      Usagi Felton Year ago

      @Rodrigo Cáceres Ahh so it's giving you "uncanny valley" vibes. See I don't get that, they remind me of the other games like animal crossing, except they're about the same height/taller than the character?

    • Rodrigo Cáceres
      Rodrigo Cáceres Year ago +1

      @Usagi Felton Animals look a bit too human probably because of the body shape and expressions look kinda bland, as if they have no soul. It's not like I'm saying that it makes it a scary game, it simply has some ugly aesthetic elements for me.

I wish I could sub to you multiple times to help you get to 100k but I can’t. More people will come soon, I just know it. We’ll get you to 100k before this year is over! 👏🏻 Stay safe Sharky, have a great rest of your evening! 💙

  • Nicolle Nelsen
    Nicolle Nelsen Year ago +1

    This game looks so charming. I can't wait to play it myself. Definetly on my WIshlist! Any game you recommend is usually a winner in my book. I've enjoyed all the games you've featured so far, it fits my style of gaming. PS. I had to stop drinking coffee after my 3rd heart attack and switched to tea. I don't miss it at all and enjoy the almost endless variety of teas on hand. I also use the name "Ruby" or "Rose" when I have to choose a name.

    • Nicolle Nelsen

      Just a side note: I wonder what would happen of you try to "pet" any of the townpeople?

  • Jenny
    Jenny Year ago +1

    looks promising. hopefully they work some more on the animations and models. it's easy to make a games environment look good visually these days with lighting but you can't hide the other stuff. Makes it looks awkward.

      Idk, it looks more like a cartoony hop to me. Like the style of animation in his walk is supposed to be a cartoony skip to his step. I thought it looked cute

    I feel like the animals look really creepy compared to the animal crossing animals, they are too human like in the body

    • Megorium
      Megorium Year ago +5

      Agreed I wrote about that in my comment also. I think just popping different animal heads on the human body is not only lazy on the Dev's part, but also very creepy. They just don't look...right. lol

    • JazzyHK
      JazzyHK Year ago +6

      yea maybe if they made the bodies more rounded and stubby to give them a more cartoonish look it wouldn't be as strange XD

  • Smooth Collision

    I feel like this is a British mad game, considering some of the phrases and words the characters use lol. You're reading out loud is pretty good

  • Mary Gershwin
    Mary Gershwin Year ago

    I'm very much on the fence about this game... don't know if I like the HEAVY inspiration they took from animal crossing with the artstyle of the villagers and the nature etc. It borders on copying tbh... although I really want to love and play it. Let's see what they change up when Early Access rolls out.

  • Dojando

    • Dojando

      @MrsNekoful If you pronounce the a more it definitely does sound different indeed. But it's so weird just reading "grandma" as a name xD

  • Megorium
    Megorium Year ago +2

    The animals need more work for sure. Moss should have a longer neck and hooves. The Elephants need thicker arms and legs. Everyone having the same human body is weirding me out. More eye designs on the animals would be nice...maybe different expressions. The graphics are lovely though and I love the Elephant's different colors and designs. I do love the little town and the item menu screen looks amazing, I also love how easy it is to design the world around you. Very streamlined. :)

  • ItsHui
    ItsHui Year ago +1

    I'd buy that game if they add a better idle animation when the character stays still~ I really don't like it when characters seem dead when not moving in games...

  • Water You Painting? (Michelle)

    So cute! Hope it comes to switch!
    What happened to Olive town? You done?

  • Starlight Bettas
    Starlight Bettas Year ago +31

    the only thing i really dislike, is how uncanny the animal characters look. their bodies are SO human looking, with the anatomy portions especially, then a sudden super cartoony animal head, it looks weird x"D

    • Starlight Bettas
      Starlight Bettas Year ago

      @A S i get they don't want it to look too much like animal crossing but if they edited the models some and made them cuter and less creepy, i think it'd be fine. would also be nice if the girls looks more... like girls. i thought the first elephant was a dude until it said otherwise lmao

    • A S
      A S Year ago

    I have been playing Animal Crossing New Horizons for a little over a year and love it. But I have been wanting a a new game that I would love as much as acnh . And this game looks just like the kind of game I was looking for. I am going to get it. Thanks so much for showing me this game. I wonder if you can go to others to play with them.

    I won't purchase it unless it comes to consoles since I don't own a PC. It looks cute though. I'd like a playthrough or at least a few episodes from early access to get more of an idea of how it plays. I hope it does well on PC so they eventually port it over.

    ❤😂🎉 hello 👋🏼 Sharky! I got the game on the 29th of September n I love 💕 it you have some animal crossing welcome amibo with the train 🚊 n the new home design, then animal crossing new horizon with the setting up of homes for animals to have , then you have a fam Stardew Valley style n of course a touch of friends of mineral town with the two mines wrapped up into one n once you get further into the game you got bug catching,fishing a ride on the boat to treasure hunt on a island n also fish! N further into the game you can move house’s upgrad your house simply by building your second level house that gives you more room, lol 😂 then once the house is done you evict you from your old house n put you in your new house with all your belongings! N put someone else in your old house! N you can then create a whole new set of neighbor hood’s for your villagers! O yea let’s talk mining ⛏, no more getting beaten up by bats, slimes bones 🦴 walking around n weird crawling things turning into flying things where you get beaten up n your stuff go missing! Yay 😀 the good time’s here you can mine in peace n happiness woo hoo!
    HokkoLife was a cool 😎 $31.74 in the Nintendo switch eShop go get it now n enjoy the good life!

    This game killed me. I have so long think about to upgrade my PC, I have no windows 10. But I get as a gift a switch from my mum 🥰, and play since weeks Animal crossing new horizons. Because at hokko life will be added a energy system and the daytime goes so fast by like in other farm games, and so I'm happy with my switch. But I wish all of you a good time in this game when it released 🙂 also a good farm game on PC is garden paws. I love this game too 💕
