An­i­mal Cross­ing: New Leaf

Hyper - - FEATURE -

I com­fort­ably put over a hun­dred hours into New Leaf, which is very atyp­i­cal for me. It took a while for this ver­sion of An­i­mal Cross­ing to click, but over time – and af­ter play­ing a great deal with other peo­ple – New Leaf turned into a daily rit­ual, an ex­pe­ri­ence that is more med­i­ta­tive than de­mand­ing (de­spite an ex­pec­ta­tion, at a cer­tain point, that you’ll play it ev­ery sin­gle day to get the best gear). New Leaf is a game where your e‡orts pay o‡ over months and years, but which keeps find­ing ways to re­ward you. It’s like liv­ing a happy, sim­ple sec­ond life, but one that you only re­ally have to check in on.
