ABC News: Coronavirus is forcing friends apart, but games like Animal Crossing and D&D are bringing them back together
Elyce Phillips is in charge of Peachbutt Island.
The island's her little corner of the new game Animal Crossing: New Horizons — which Elyce sums up as a "nice town simulator".
"You get a little deserted island, you set it up with little houses, you get to decorate it how you like and then just chill out," she says.
"It's hard to do when you're busy with life. This dropped at just the right time."
The comedian has had a little more time on her hands lately — coronavirus has meant weeks of cancelled gigs, and physical distancing has made meeting up with friends impossible.
But in the game being social is encouraged. Loved ones are just a short flight (in a plane piloted by a dodo) away.
"I can go visit my girlfriend's island when at the moment I can't actually go, because she's in Tasmania and they're locked off. So it's a handy little substitute for doing visits to people that I can't actually go and see in person at the moment," Elyce says.
The visit can't make up for the real thing, but the connection means a lot when isolated from friends.
