Dark themed island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Mostly, players try to build their island with greenery and beautiful nature all around. They attempt to decorate their island while watching the beautiful sunset on the beach. Interestingly, a creator changed this narrative completely. They made an island where there are only limited trees, factories all over, and most unlikely, no sign of light.

The entire island is covered in dark and gives a very upsetting vibe. Indeed, a lot of players may not like this theme, but it’s good to see how players with different thinking influence New Horizons.

Even YouTuber SwitchForce was very shocked after seeing the mechanics of the island. He said, “If you use all the design tools, if you use all the custom paths, if you procure the items in the perfect alignment. You can build this strange, interesting, exotic land that is unlike anything we have ever seen.”

The entire island is built with factories which gives it the look of industrial land. Moreover, the creator has used many neon signs and garbage items to create such a unique island. They even built a fish market at the side of the beach and also a city with tons of lights to give it a look of a 24/7 working city.

Certain aspects of the island also resemble a futuristic city where everyone is busy with their own work and life. It’s just a dark version of Nintendo’s life simulator game, and to be honest, it’s very creative in itself.

In fact, if the spring items and season ever bore you, you can yourself make such an island that will definitely stand out among others.
