Playdate

I am extremely excited for Playdate, the upcoming handheld console from Panic. I’ve signed up for the chance to snag a developer unit and have been soaking up every technical detail I can find. It sounds like the SDK is similar to Love2D so I’ve focused early prototyping efforts there, taking care to abstract away Love2D specifics to make porting easier. It’s been interesting learning more about Lua. Particularly after spending years working with strongly-typed, compiled languages.
