I’m going to be honest with you. Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a phenomena that I just really don’t understand. I mean, I suppose the concept it cool enough as a social platform and game, but why has my husband spent hours and hours island-hopping, picking fruit, and solving little puzzles so that he can get new outfits?

I think that’s what he has been doing? Okay, maybe I’m a little bit salty.

The cutesy game definitely has a dedicated following, and more than one has suggested that parts of it are really kind of spooky.

Enter YouTube creator Evil Imp.

A couple of days ago, Evil Imp released a “horror trailer” for the otherwise ultra-friendly game creating a short story-concept involving a young woman who moves to an island called Paradise after the death of her parents. Naturally, Paradise is anything but, and soon creepy elements of the island begin to reveal themselves.

From spooky houses to ghosts to an Egyptian-themed tomb, the creator actually managed to create something that’s a pretty great concept.
