GamePlay Space presents Game Platform Pitch with Playdate!

Playdate is a brand-new and genuinely unique gaming handheld system that celebrates video games. It’s yellow. It fits in your pocket. It includes brand new games from amazing creators. It has a beautiful black and white screen. And yes, it also has a crank.

Created with great attention to detail and affection by app developer and video game publisher Panic, Playdate hopes to capture the spirit of endless possibility and excitement that games have given us since the beginning. Playdate’s collection of games will delight players with their inventiveness and ingenuity. And in addition to introducing players to brand new games, Playdate also encourages people to create their imaginative games and interactive software using a suite of easy development tools. In short, Playdate was made just for fun.
