Nintendo’s Animal Crossing has been an escape for many during the Covid-19 lockdown, and now it’s become a place for Hong Kong protesters to congregate without flouting social distancing rules.

Animal Crossing is a simulation game where players live on an idyllic tropical island and befriend anthropomorphic animals. Players can customise their islands with in-game illustrating tools and visit each other’s islands online. Pro-democracy content created for the game has gone viral on social media, including Twitter.
