Playdate: A new handheld console- with a crank?

Recommended Posts

I pre-ordered on Friday the 30th, and it said it'll ship in early 2022. To those of you that ordered Thursday, did it say yours will ship in late 2021?

Yes.  I pre-ordered on Thursday and it showed that it would ship late 2021.

I wonder if game progress can be saved on the Playdate?  I would assume there's a save option.  

It has to.  That is one feature that is a must.

Agreed.  I only asked because I haven't heard/seen anyone mention it.  Not even the Playdate website shows anything about saving the game progress.

Yes. There is a total of 4 GB for game and data storage, including saved game state.

I think for those who missed the first season, they'll have to buy the season.  Then the season would download to the console with all 24 games at once.  Maybe they'll get the season one games at a discount because of having to wait.  Or perhaps Panic will allow the first season to still be free for people who didn't get the console at the start.

You've probably seen the video (since you posted it as well), but for others interested it seems everyone gets season 1 and you get the games at the same rate - no matter when it arrives.  If I get mine a couple weeks before you, I would get to start the next wave before you.  If you get yours in 2022, people in 2021 will most likely have them all already.  They had said it just wasn't feasible, so I think season 2 will be more likely the original vision (where we all get to play at the exact same time).

They had suggested doing like a "book club" where maybe we just manually sync up our play times and start the same game at the same time.  I'd love to start that with some folks here that are in the 2021 pre-orders.  Just kind of play around the same time and share experiences.

I am glad you are following the Playdate and reporting on it like the Amico.

It's very helpful to me for information.  Thank you!👍😊

That’s what mine said, my order is in the 6000s. I’m interested in having this from the start, because it will be fun to talk about the new games as they drop, like episodes in a TV season. 
 

This kind of hipster indie game is totally in my wheelhouse and I’m stoked to play.

My oldest is working on a Playdate 'game' as part of his schooling using a dev unit.  If he ever finishes it, I'll show it off. lol

I'm not 100% on the specifics of it, but it involved an onscreen potato that you turn or something with the crank, lol.  he's going to dive back into the project, i think.
