As people spend more time (read: hours, days, weeks, months, every waking second) with ‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’, they’re really flexing their creative muscles while in isolation. We’re not really doing much else at the moment so may as well throw absolutely everything into creating that precious little island into something beautiful, right? Like, oh, I dunno, a little cult? Just a little cult activity.

Sure, some people are going bonkers with the terraforming on ‘New Horizons’, turning their islands into gorgeous havens while digging themselves deeper and deeper into debt to Tom Nook, and others are just straight-up turning their ‘Animal Crossing’ islands into cult havens/communes that look like they’re straight out of some menacing horror film. Or like…the sixties.

Extremely normal and fine behaviour, which you know I am extremely here for because I love me some good weird cult shit. So without further ado, here is some of my absolutely favourite ‘Animal Crossing’ Weird Cult And Horror Shit I’ve noticed people are doing on their islands.

Baby cult. BABY CULT.

NORMAL STUFF.

THIS IS ONLY SLIGHTLY WORRYING.

HWHAT THE FUCK IS THIS.

YEP, THIS IS NORMAL. NOTHING TO SEE HERE.

????

OK COOL, THIS IS FINE.

UhhhhHHHHHHHH ok.

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO GULLIVER OH MY CHRIST.

Comedian/streamer/artist Jordan Raskopoulos created some weird-ass cult on their island too, with uniforms, and traitors being fenced off as a warning to others.

And then there’s literally everything about this island. It’s a wild ride, hang on.

If an island has a dedicated Wank Spot™ you know it’s worth visiting. No seriously, I’m going to try and visit that island soon and force them to become my best friends.

And this?

Oh, wait this is literally just the end of the game, which also looks like a cult led by K.K. Slider.

And finally, my pal Alex who has risen up against the biggest threat of them all – Tom Nook and his stranglehold as the sole landlord on the island.

He’s in a prison now, because is it not suspicious that this one racoon in an argyle-print jumper has investments and money being held in “deserted islands” scattered across the globe? Definitely some fishy tax evasion happening here.
