Nintendo regards Animal Crossing as a "communication game". This is an open game with a fixed plot. Players can live alone in it without being restricted by default plots and tasks. Many people enjoy the fun of "talking" with interesting animal characters. . Through the use of Gamecube’s internal clock, the game can be mapped to real time, so there are actual events happening, including Independence Day, Christmas, Halloween, or other regular activities, such as morning exercises, fishing competitions, Some players also deliberately adjust the time forward or backward to do time travel.
The obvious goal of this game is to expand the player's house. The house is used to place the furniture or props purchased and obtained in the game.
The civet cat character Tom Nook will open a shop in the game and give the player a loan (19,800 Bells) to buy the first house. This house is very small and can only put wallpaper, carpet, and radio. After paying off the first loan, the player can ask Rick to expand the house (requires 148,000 Bells). On the next day, the space of the house will increase immediately. After paying off the loan again, the player can choose to continue to expand the house space (398,000 Bells required) or build a basement (498,000 Bells required). After paying off the loan again, Rick can let the player expand one more time (798,000 Bells required).
Furnishings will affect Feng Shui. Putting items of a specific color in a specific location can increase the chance of finding bell coins or rare items.
