After a FULL year of waiting since ordering, my Playdate finally arrived today
For those of you who dont know, the Playdate is a small limited run handheld console made by Panic; weirdly the same company that makes my fav website editor (Nova) but most people know them more for making Firewatch and a dumb game about a goose I never played! The ad is cute
It has a very reflective 2bit screen, a speaker, some buuttoons and a crank and also wifi and 4GB storage! Currently there is no midi player app but I WANT ONE; side note it would be really cool to make a web radio station that just played midis.
Also I really didn't plan to make anything for it, but now that its in my hands ooohh do i wanna make something for it
If you dont have one but wanna make stuff for it you can get a simulator on their dev page
(its also got a game making program thing
that I think lets you make games with minimal dev skills)
Iv been trying out unofficial sideloaded apps today, so far my favorite is this dumb horse racing simulator.
Its also got a cute lil planner app:
