As for the gaming console itself, “season one” of Playdate features 24 titles of which 21 have been announced. Users will be able to try out two new games each week over the course of 12 weeks. The details for each are kept secret as of now, but titles include Casual BirderExecutive Golf DXFlipper LifterLost Your Marbles and Sasquatchers, just to name a few.
