OK/NORMAL is a lo-fi experience by 98DEMAKE, an independent solo developer known for making PSX and VHS horrors for the computer. I am familiar with this scene of solo development, where fanatics of the 90s J-Horror video game renaissance vie to make their own tribute or create a universal revival, but I’ve never actually had the chance to play one.
Nintendo’s Most Successful Simulation Game
Animal Crossing is one of Nintendo’s most popular franchises. It’s a game that reminds us of the small things in our lives and caresses you in a world where violence and deceit is not needed to win. There is no ending and no general goal in Animal Crossing. All you need to do is live and wander across the land you stumbled upon.
Sailing off from his last grand adventure, Link is caught in a tremendous storm that crashes his raft and upon the shores of Koholint Island. On the beach, Link is found by Marin who takes him back to her house and lets him rest and recover. Once awake, Link finds himself on an adventure to get off Koholint and travel home to Hyrule by gathering the eight instruments of the sirens and wake the mysterious Wind Fish inside the egg at the top of Mount Tamaranch.
