Panic, the creator of the upcoming Playdate handheld, today announced that they will open preorders on July 29th. They will go live at 10:00 AM PDT.
I’m tempted, but I’m not sure. Feels a bit like a “cool gadget” that will end up sitting on my shelf.
I think that is kind of the point of this device. A cool oddity that you will play for a few hours and let it sit in your collection.
I’m excited for this. It’s a premium experiment but it has the right mix of tech to be refined casual fun for a quick pick up and play device as new games come down from the net. I’ll be pre-ordering for sure.
