Yesterday Panic - a software development company who basically seem to describe themselves as having enough money to do what they want and aren't tied to shareholders etc, announced a new handheld device called the Playdate.
They've lined up 12 games for it, which are included in the price and unlock 1 per week, designed by people like Keita Takahashi and Bennett Foddy (Katamari and QWOP) and others.
It looks so pretty. There's something about the design that makes me want to throw money at it, but also by liking it and the idea behind it I feel like I should start using mustache wax and riding a fixie bike.
I think it's because it reminds me a little of one of my all time favourite MP3 players, a Sony walkman effort that had a brushed steel case and a really nice form factor. Between the form factor and the idea of getting a game a week in a season, bespokely made for this one weird handheld, man I'm into it.
It reminds me of Rami Ismail's Meditations experiment but on a physical level.
