Although not as advanced as the Nintendo Switch or smartphone, Panic’s Playdate retro game handheld project has touched the nostalgia of many. The development team says it will rely on quality games to power the clean-slooking game device. And in addition to enhancing the durability of the material, Playdate provides the convenience of maintaining it.

As the hardware is finalized, the next phase of the Playdate team’s focus is to deliver the system to the developer.
To that end, it announced a developer preview program that allows a limited number of developers to participate to enrich the initial launch of the game.
Interested developers can contact the Playdate team directly by email. If all goes well, the finished product is expected to be shipped in early 2020.
