We don't normally get over-excited about games consoles on Creative Bloq, but this one's an exception. Panic , best known for its Mac and iOS apps - and more recently for publishing the wonderful, thoughtful and atmospheric Firewatch - has just announced the Playdate, and it's without doubt the most beautiful and intriguing gaming handheld we've ever seen, and an amazing piece of experimental design.
