At first I thought the hand-crank actually powered the device, like it was some kind of wind-up motor that provided power to it. And the reason the console is monochrome was because it used a ultra-low powered 8-bit chip and a screen with no backlight. That would actually be a legitimately cool idea

What the fuck, I would have actually loved a handheld console I could charge with a handcrank. How did they get so close to a good idea, then ruin it?


2a6346  No.16500496

I thought it would be an eco thing, and the crank would be a battery charger. But no, it's a $150 handheld with pre-set games, the crank is a gimmick, has no goddamn start/pause button.

I figured it would be a low-powered handheld with some sort of open SDK so anybody could make games for it, but with a decent form-factor and hand-crank charging. That would be an interesting thing. Like the Arduboy but less shit. Nope. Turns out it's an overpriced gimmickbox. This thing could actually be a neat little gimmick worth having if it were $20, maybe $40 at the most. Not one hundred fifty fucking American dollars.

Not even saging because this shit is so stupid everybody needs to see how goddamn dumb it is. To think it could have been great.

I don't understand why there isn't an indie device for making your own fun portable games.

Something barebones with maybe a 256 color display, 4 shades of grey at worst, eight buttons (A B X Y L R Start Select) and a d-pad, and an SDK that allows you to make games as simply as game maker with its basic basic drag and drop, or get deeper into it and script them with the something like Game Maker's built-in scripting language, right down to writing them in whatever assembly (it would probably run on ARM architecture).

Then people could share them online, make emulators, do whatever. If it gets popular enough have a variety of models (classic brick, newer sideways format, or a clamshell design).

I would be on that in a heartbeat.

But this thing just looks like pure indie soy and an excuse to trademark the "playdate" brand name for whatever ungodly reason.

>Why not have it power the battery, while also being an input for gameplay?

I've had a flashlight with a crank that powers it, and while it's not especially tough to spin, but it's definitely too stiff to be comfortably used for long periods of time as a precision gameplay input. It also conserves a lot of the momentum you put into it, so it will spin for a bit even after you let go, and this would make reversing even more cumbersome and annoying. Seems like you'd have to pick one or the other, unless you'd want it to be used for really basic gameplay interaction, like just cranking it in one direction, but even then it's still really stiff.

The Dingoo could do everything you seem to want, and that was 10 years ago. Custom games could be made for it. PS1 or DS level graphics. They were around $100. Most handheld emulator devices today are based on Android, which provides a common platform to develop on. The GPD XD is an example of this type of device. The Switch is open to indie devs. Portable gaming is fairly open today.

Honestly if they can make some games for this thing that are as fun as simple Game Boy games where you go for a high score (like Tetris) then it should be a simple fun toy, which is what they seem to be going for. I admit the devs seem a bit cucked (they published Firewatch and they have Bennett Foddy onboard) but the games look fun I'll probably get it.

This device seems fucking incomplete and expensive (should have aimed for below $100) for a basic quirky handheld.

>1 d-pad

>2 action buttons A/B

>analogue crank of forward/backward rotation

>possible pause button in upper right corner?

I just look at this device and it just screams out that it needs more buttons for input. Even the ABXY style button diamond to mirror the d-pad would have sufficed.

Even the Game Boy had D-pad, A/B and Start/Select and GB games like it's Zelda entries really pushed it for lack of more buttons with it's inventory system. While the GB control scheme is based off the NES at least the NES came bundled with TWO controllers allowing for slightly more input options in some games

>>16500266

>A game and watch looks more appealing

>>16500321

>At first I thought the hand-crank actually powered the device, like it was some kind of wind-up motor that provided power to it. And the reason the console is monochrome was because it used a ultra-low powered 8-bit chip and a screen with no backlight. That would actually be a legitimately cool idea

Now combining these two ideas, could a handheld with the same screen as as G&W LCD display actually get enough power from a small handcrank?

A "Crank & Game & Watch" if you will.

>>16500951

Could have a handheld with two slots for a removable crank, one for game input that can handle both clockwise/anti clockwise variations of rotational speed and then another one for power that spins in one direction to turn a flywheel momentum power generator.

Of course it can. That's why I honestly believed thats what this product was. 8-bit microcontrollers with CISC architectures that run on nanoamps (yes, nanoamps) have been on the market since 2010 and are used in ultra-low power devices marketed to 20 year battery lives

https://www.st.com/en/microcontrollers-microprocessors/stm8l151c3.html

USB hand crank chargers have also been on the market for awhile now, marketed to disaster relief situations, and they're very compact. I guess if I was smart enough I could wire up a prototype console with such a concept but no doubt its already possible with todays technology

Schizophrenia is characterized by rejecting reality. Crafting a narrative that others don't observe what you do and judge you for it so that you can feel comfortable playing games in public seems more like schizophrenia than acknowledging that they do but having the strength of character to do the things you enjoy regardless.

I only respond because there is a sickness and a weakness in this kind of self-delusion that I believe people, especially here, should strive to overcome. Lies that build false bravado inevitably crumble, pursuing them is a waste of time over building real self-value that lets you act contrary to the masses confidently.

Sure, and studies on physiological differences on schizophrenics, notably correlation with morphological differences in the paracingulate sulcus, a prefrontal cortex neural structure also linked to reality monitoring.44% of schizophrenics lack this structure, compared to 27% of controls. Incidentally, you can test your own reality monitoring, i.e. ability to distinguish real from imagine memories, with a missing word pair memory test, where common word pairs are presented, sometimes with one word missing, and you are quizzed on which words really appeared.

Because it's an automatic unconscious process currently referred to and studied as snap judgement, previously known under idioms such as judging a book by its cover.

There's a few decades of studies and literature on the instantaneous formation of impressions and judgements. It's quite well researched as it's one of the major fixations of the Left, or more importantly, how to condition against or control it, particularly with [insert pet group] "biases".

>Indie gaming platforms need to die. They are about as worthless and regressive as a typewriter.

I think they are filling a role that is clearly missing with developers that should actually matter. Tons of people would love to play retro style video games made after the retro years but for the most part in order to get to enjoy that style you have to go through these indie developers. It sucks a lot because if these companies only delivered to people on retro style games much more then indies wouldn't even be necessary since these companies with money would BTFO indies every single time.

It makes me think back on how great I thought Bionic Commando Rearmed was. A remake of a retro game done very tastefully. It definitely felt like a game that could have been made during the retro years only with better graphics of course. Imagine if Square for example gave us a mainline FF game only retro sprite style or even 7-9 style. I guarantee it would have its audience and they wouldn't even need to put such large budgets into these games either. A PS1 style mainline FF game with care put into it would sell 1 million copies guaranteed.

Big companies need to sell to investors and normalfags which is why they need to constantly be pushing graphics and cinematics. Retro-style games don't have nearly as big an audience as shit like God of War or Last of Us so they're left to the indies who pine for old games.

The thing is it's better this way because indies are more in touch with their audiences and do more interaction, and so you're more likely to get something you want out of it. If big companies did retro style games they'd try to ruin them with gacha bullshit and microtransactions. Indies have more of a stake in the game and have much more incentive to make a quality game that's complete, because they need to put food on their table whereas big companies can just write it off. Even that Bionic Commando game you mentioned was done by a privately held/indie studio being licensed by Capcom.

Indies are the only ones who care anymore. They're the ones who will survive the coming crash and probably the only future games have. Which is good because they're the only ones who care how games actually play anymore. They're keeping the fun alive.

Hear me out here: What if it was both? The means to charge the device's battery is also an input method and games occasionally have you use it to accomplish something, so every once in a while you recharge the device while playing the game.

It would behoove developers not to overuse it to the point of annoying the player though.

Why a fucking hand-crank of all things, which is going to end up wasting more energy than it generates and keeps your hands occupied rather than free to manipulate the device you want to use? Wouldn't a foot-pedal solution be much better? It would keep your hands free, and being a stable and stationary unit able to leverage gravity, it'd be far more energy efficient. Plus, a lot of people fidget anyhow - so you'll be tapping into that already expended but wasted energy in a more natural motion.

This is why sweat shops, in a time before electricity was really economical, used sewing machines with foot pedals for mass production rather than hand-crank models. They wouldn't have been very efficient.

It really say something about this device when people see the crank on this portable device and think "rechargeable power!" not "game input?". The official website had to clarify that point, I'm seen comments on other websites disappointed about the crank = no recharge idea.

Maybe a cheap gaming handheld with power crank (and optional flashlight/radio attachment) could actually be a viable product to sell to poorer countries or given to kids to play with in disaster situations as some form of escapism entertainment.

>The only game that would not suck at is a fishing game.

Could be possible to make something akin to WarioWare:Twisted but it would probably just run out of ideas for microgames and be lacking to what Nintendo could do (Eg: no Nintendo classics microgames).
