Why is this listed as a Playdate game?

What fetish thing were you picturing, exclusively asking out of curiosity xD I understand now where your "frankly I don't want to know" came from. I interpreted it as like, oh yeah I'm sure it's something but I don't care. Gotta love misinterpreting text statements on the internet lol
Alright! So! I got the same error... BUT! I was able to fix the problem. The .pdx has too long of a name I think for the playdate itself. I unpacked the archive, shortened the .pdx name to "gimmiefriction.pdx", repacked it, and it works like a charm.
Absolutely love the custom wrapping paper :)
Well, I loaded the .zip into the Offical sideloader on their website. It uploaded to the database fine & shows up as a game to install, but when I do install it it gives an error upon completion. I've tried multiple times, same error. I've had this happen with other .pdx's as well, not sure what the issue is as there is no error code or message, just "Unable to install"
Physical playdate seems to be having an issue installing the game via sideloading on play.date's official website. Manually loading the .pdx in USB mode works fine though.
On the technical and fun side of things? Great! Runs nice and is a blast ^-^
Excited to see where you take this! Even though the playdate version is a bit more stripped down it's quite tricky and satisfying trying to collect the USB's. Any plans to get the accelerometer setup as a method of control like the android version?
Oooooo the Rolodex proposition is a wonderful idea. It would translate sooooo to the crank, especially with a little flip-flip-flip sound effect as you scroll through.
I'm sure there are others like me. I haven't had a cell phone for two years, so something like this could have a huge potential to fill the void of an address book while still staying somewhat techy XD
Looking excellent! The direction you seem to be taking this is fantastic. The vibe, aesthetic, flow, chef's kiss. Have you considered adding any sort of magic abilities or scrolls to wield in the off-hand?
Excited for you to get a real life console! There's a good amount of lag on the physical handheld that makes the game nearly unplayable. When I run the .pdx in the simulator it runs beautifully though, so that's food for thought.
