A player of Animal Crossing: New Horizons has crafted a rooftop garden for their home by getting creative with the game’s design tools and features. Animal Crossing optical illusion designs can be created with out-of-the-box thinking from crafty fans, leading to unique and exciting builds not typically allowed in the game.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons lets players use its terraforming tools, decorative items, and range of features to design almost anything they can imagine, but the game does have its limits.

Such workarounds have included hats designed to mimic food, or Simple Panels with custom patterns used to emulate brick walls or cityscapes.
