For this post, I’m covering one of my internal “genres” of towns that I describe as dreamy or ethereal. It’s an aesthetic I admire a lot, not just in Animal Crossing, I tend to love dreamy art/music & whatnot as well. In Animal Crossing, I’ve noticed dreamy towns are achievable through a mix of atmospheric conditions/lighting, along with the right sort of landscaping, like pale flowers and beautiful PWPs like lamps. But instead of further breaking down what makes a town dreamy, let’s just dive right into the magical beauty of these three towns 🙂
To explain the title a bit, in my head there are various different genres of towns, and one of my favorites is just a plain old, regular, cozy AC town. Still developed and creative and whatnot, mind you, just not an elaborately fancy theme beyond a cozy Animal Crossing village. I really like towns like this, and it’s the sort of ‘theme’ I want my side town Bywater to have one day. That’s the edition of today’s dream diary, and it’s probably an edition that will return in the future.
I’ve been toying with the idea of making ‘dream diary’ posts on WordPress for a while now, and even contemplated making a new blog just for posts like this. But in the end I decided I quite like only having one AC blog to keep up with, so I’m just going to have the dream diary entries become a little side-segment here on A Forest Life that I’ll do every now and then. I like the idea of not only posting about my own town and WiFi friends’ towns, but also showcasing some of the other wonderful towns out there in the AC:NL universe 🙂
