Animal Chaos

Animal Chaos

Animal Crossing: New Leaf is a beautifully addicting game. My obsession with this stylized chore simulator is borderline unhealthy. Maybe it’s just me, but lately it seems like I spend more time working on my house in Animal Crossing, than I do my actual home. This week’s comic is an interpretation of what it feels like everyday I don’t play. Please tell me I’m not the only one…


  1. You’re not the only one… that slave driver Nook has me work a triple shift to pay off that house he keeps upgrading and charge’n me crazy amounts for. It’s a 4X4 room Nook; $400k are you serious?!?!

  2. I haven’t been able to pry it away from my girlfriend yet, but that’s working out in my favor because I just have my starter tent sitting out in the middle of her beautiful town. I refer to it as “hobo camp” and threaten to log in while she sleeps to start new characters to place more tents.. but I know one day I just wouldn’t wake up anyway. So it’s not worth it.

    1. United the Hobo shanty town stands! Fight the powers that be! But in honestly, she’s only protecting from a life of servitude. Consider yourself one of the lucky ones… It’s too late for me.

  3. No, you aren’t the only one. I haven’t gotten into (read: given in) to the Animal Crossing series yet…but that’s only because the Harvest Moon AND Rune Factory games have their claws sunk deep into my psyche. My addiction started when my mother bought the Harvest Moon N64 game for me when I was about 10…but when I turned 18, life caught up with college and bills and work and loans.

    One would think that would mean I have no time to be around items of entertainment, but I manage a gaming/comic store. *sigh*

    Btw, are you aware just how many Creepypastas start out like your comic? O.O

    1. Oh no… Not Harvest Moon…. I’m having horrible visions of produce, chicken, and milking… Dear God, the milking! I know the addiction well….
      Animal Crossing is a different breed of addiction. Stay far away if you value your sanity!

      And as far as creepy pastas go, I try to steer clear of the darker corners of the internet. You can find some rather unsettling stuff in there. I can only imagine the terrifying Animal Crossing legends.

  4. Now I’m never playing animal crossing. holy crap!
    I don’t need a game judging me like that. I am hoping this wasn’t a real thing. poor Timmy and Tommy.

  5. I’m not a huge gamer, besides the occasional bout with World of Warcraft and Bioshock, but because I have such low willpower…you guys are making me want to buy this.

  6. My Animal Crossing confession: I bury pitfall seeds at strategically important points and laugh at the chaos I have created. Then I water my roses.
