Playdate handheld console unveils Pulp, a free tool for making games

An exciting update was announced overnight to the intriguing handheld game console Playdate.

The retro-style monochrome handheld with a crank on the side has been in the works for years, and is set to be up for pre-orders in July for US$179.

But the big news was a free no-code tool for making games for the platform called Pulp. Via a web browser anyone can put together graphics, sound, animations and scripts to create real games for the Playdate.

Make your own Playdate games right in a web browser.

A great way to ensure game making is accessible and creative for this weird little platform.

Check out the whole update in the video:
