maiki plays Animal Crossing: New Horizons

This game is just too much. I need somewhere to dump my thoughts, so…

Okay, gotta get this out of the way: I just keep thinking about The Prisoner (1967). Tom Nook really seals the deal… but we’ll get back to that later.

Okay, the NookPhone… its a custom ROM of Android with integrated F-Droid’s local app exchange feature. I’m guessing e runs a mesh wifi network across the island.

What I’m saying is, we can do that right now. We have the technology.

Nintendo is run by a sentient pool of points. Just, every coin, bell, mile… a transdemensional form that slowly seeps into reality until we are all just looking for that next hit of points…

Just how deep does Nook’s surveillance network go?!

Also, calling it NookNet from now. :leaves:

OMG, @susan, Nook’s Cranny reminds me of the Tokyo Fish Market Gift Shop!

And of course it has a “webpage”, and it include images!

And in particular! :leaves:
