I want one. Sweet and short post :D
But really, I have been a huge fan of Panic ever since Coda 1, which I pirated way back when I was in uni, on my first ever MacBook. Immediately purchased Coda 2 from the very first Mac AppStore. It is still my go to app for web / (s)ftp needs.
If nothing else, for me, Panic represents quality. Their products imbued with everything that reminds me of Steve Jobs era Apple. Firewatch was a beautiful game. And I have no doubt Playdate will have games of similar quality.
That said, I can't afford one. Not yet. I've been hunting jobs for a few months now with zero luck. At $150, it's not breaking any banks, just that I without income, I can't justify a gaming device. As of today, there are 70,000+ people on the wait list. I hope that I got a chance to get one.
