Games as a medium can be quite intense. When you think of the hardcore FPS games out there, the high octane racers and the grey hack and slash titles, you can almost feel your heartbeat go up just a little. However, amongst all these intense titles have always been games that take the foot off the gas, allowing players to play at their own pace, have a leisurely time and give players the freedom to play their own way. One such game that epitomizes this approach is Animal Crossing.
Animal Crossing is a wholesome experience for all who set foot on their own island, allowing players to create communities of vibrant, fun-loving characters, build a town from the ground up and collect tonnes of fun goodies. Not to mention a great co-op set-up that’s tonnes of fun too. At Creature Crossing, we aim to replicate this approach, creating a wholesome community of AC players and acting as a social hub and a resource for all players who want some hints and tips on how to succeed in this lovely game.
Our team has a staggering collective knowledge when it comes to Animal Crossing. We have played thousands of hours collectively tending to our towns, cities, and islands, We have played from the humble Gamecube days to the modern age of AC on the Nintendo Switch, and we have paid millions of bells to the nefarious Tom Nook! All of this makes us your ideal guides to this wonderful game series!
Creature Crossing has one clear and straightforward goal, and that is to provide a comprehensive overview of all things Animal Crossing. We aim to not just provide content for the newest updates and offerings within AC: New Horizons, but also offer some content for older titles like New Leaf, Pocket Camp, City Folk, and Wild World. We aim to be a one-stop-shop for all things Animal Crossing, and unlike that dastardly Tom Nook, we won’t make you pay through the nose to see our content.
Wheter it’s the more retro titles like Wild World & City Folk, or the new, shiny outings like New Horizons and Pocket Camp, we have a writer that will be able to give you all the AC related info you could ever need!
We aim to offer an inclusive service that caters to all players, whether you be just starting out, or an AC pro. We aim to provide an encyclopedia of knowledge when it comes to this game franchise. Allowing you to create your town, island or city exactly as you want, get all the items that you desire and pack your settlement with as many cool villagers as possible. We aim to make your AC experience as stress-free as possible so that you can relax, unwind and have a good time.

Hi! I’m Melika Jeddi, an experienced content writer, an avid fan of all things media, and founder of Screen Hype! Gaming has been one of my core interests ever since I was a little girl excitedly playing my way through classics like Croc, Crash, and Spyro. Over the years my taste in genres has spread out, but that love of the escapism that gaming brings has always remained. I also get way too invested in the shows and movies that I watch, and when I’m not glued to some manner of screen, I have my head buried in a graphic
novel. It’s such a joy to be able to write about the topics that I’m passionate about!
