A new handheld was announced today by Panic, publishers of Firewatch and the upcoming Untitled Goose Game.

This is Playdate.

It has a crank for control input, a black-and-white screen, and comes with a "season" of new games designed specifically for Playdate. One new game every week for twelve weeks.

Priced at $149, expected to arrive in 2020. They've posted a thread with more information about its creation over on Twitter.

@FarFromSubtle I'm kinda into it! This thing definitely came out of nowhere, and the crank is a big weird question mark. But they're working with some great hardware designers (, so I know the hardware itself is going to be rock solid.
