In a bid to launch a curiosity-spiking product within the parameters of the gaming industry, video game company Panic launches the Playdate console. The offering is convenient to use as it is portable and it has a pleasing aesthetic that definitely embraces the factor of nostalgia.
When designing the exterior of its product, Panic focused on the beloved Game Boy appearance and thus, came up with a "bright yellow old-school device [that] looks a little like a shrunken [version of its inspiration]." What is interesting, however, is that the Playdate console boasts a little crank on the side. This feature is said to amplify the gaming experience. Players will have to use the leaver for some games and not for others. Regardless, this functional element is sure to bring consumer attention to the Playdate console.
