The Little Things: Cryptids Island

It’s been a while since I made one of these. I’VE BEEN TIRED OK?!? Lots of tests, projects and foot drills. Yeah, that’s right! FOOT DRILLS!!! I need to vent my anger a bit. There will be spoilers in the following post. If you don’t want spoilers…..too bad. Let’s get started!

1. Hedge Trimming Minigame: If you have the Garden Shears, you can actually go to the housing area with all the hedges, head on over to the massive untrimmed hedge, and use those shears to play a hedge trimming minigame!

IT’S ABSTRACT ART OK?!?

2. The Fence of Feet: I really love all the work Creators do to make sure every little bit of the game is worth noting. Remember-They have to design the entire island from scratch, including every single detail of the background. Speaking of which, if you look at the background of the Mews Mansion gate, you’ll see that the fence is made of feet! Well, not literally. That would be gross.

A nice little detail to honor Bigfoot!

3. The Devil’s Cottage: We all know the infamous Jersey Devil. The thing was supposedly the child of the witch, Mother Leeds. In Cryptids Island you find Mother Leeds’ cottage and it’s pretty much the creepiest thing ever. If you look at the gate of the cottage, you’ll see that the number plate reads 669.

But you’ll also notice that the number 9 is a little crooked. So…..what if the number 9 was actually the number 6 flipped over? For those of you who are bad at math (or basic logic) that would make the number plate 666. THE NUMBER OF THE DEVIL!!! DUN DUN DUN!!! It makes sense though. Mother Leeds was a witch after all.

4. Return of the Ribica: The viewfinder at Loch Ness is a fun little feature on Cryptids Island. Occasionally you can spot planes, Balloon Boy, and sometimes, you’ll spot this little fishing boat.

Does that boat look familiar to you? Well it should! FLASHBACK POWERS, ACTIVATE!

It’s the Ribica! Ok, so maybe there are some differences, like the missing name, and the missing fishing rod, but other than that, it’s pretty much the same. And I’m satisfied with that.

Well, that’s all. I’m going to bed.
