Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer gives players a lot of freedom. Beyond a few required furniture items that have to be in certain facilities or character’s houses, you’re able to do pretty much whatever you want. The items you’re give to work with are often quite neutral, in terms of villagers’ favorite things, and sometimes even have refurbishing options that allow you a lot of leeway within their desired themes. When it comes to facilities, usually specific areas require a certain number of furniture types, with a lot of items that fulfill requirements.

 

If anything, I found the requirements made things more interesting. After all, I’d be following certain patterns in Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer otherwise. Characters I like would get lavish and elaborate homes. Those I didn’t would live in squalor. By giving some sort of idea for what should be happening, it made it easier to invest in each property.

 

To help give an idea of what can be accomplished within Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, today’s diary post will be a showcase of some of the homes and facilities I’ve created. Each one has a QR code attached. If you visit the Happy Home Network within your game, scan the code to be taken to one of my places.

I’m exceptionally proud of the hotel I created for my town. There was a Japanese exterior option, so I ran with it and made a hotel that revolved around the exterior’s theme. (And no, Isabelle is not sitting on a table. That is a Zen Bench.

That garish home at the top of the screen belongs to Bunnie. She wanted every day to be her birthday. Be careful what you wish for, Bunnie.

That goes for Lucy too. Lucy wanted to live in a creepy doll house. Her home is now filled with every possible doll-shaped character I could find. She can have tea with them. Forever.

Mira is adorable, so when she asked for a futuristic home, she got the Astro House of anyone’s dreams. Superheroes deserve super shanties.

Benjamin’s request is one I wish had come up after I unlocked the ability to have second floors and such. He wanted to be self sufficient and, since he couldn’t wait, is now trapped in a one-room barn. But he’s still pretty happy about it!

Funny thing about Annalise. She’s one of the villagers I’ve never, ever seen before. But she was cute standing outside of Nook’s Homes. When she asked to live in a stained glass tea room, I did my best to make her proud. Brewster has competition!

Kabuki’s request for a zen shrine came up after I’d reached a point where I could have given him a mansion, but it seemed like his place should be more simple. So, it is basically a shrine. Quaint and simple, but also a little ornate.

Funny thing about Cherry. I love her. She was in my Animal Crossing: New Leaf town for about a year. She always seemed like such a punk, but here she was all about fashion. She wanted a catwalk, so I did my best to make it edgy with red lights and black accents.

Tiffany’s room is here to help encourage people to take her on as a client. If you want to start unlocking some of the GracieGrace furniture, giving Tiffany a celebrity home will help. She loves the Gorgeous line, and I found I had every piece of it after taking a minute to give her a new home.

Finally, we’ll end this presentation with a call for creativity. Cube wanted to live in an eco-friendly factory. Which is admirable, but he’s an adorable penguin! He deserves better than the industrial life. So, I set him up with a music factory. That’s the same thing, right? His furniture requirements were a wind turbine outside and conveyor belt inside, so I did my best to include both in the design in unexpected ways.

 

You can do a lot of great things with Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, and the fact that it’s so easy to share is a great motivator to spend 15-45 minutes making a home that will make people proud.
