What’s That Game? Audio Edition ~The Dream Continues…~

This one is driving me crazy because I have definitely heard this before. Paper Mario TTYD?

Sorry, this game is much more recent than those. It came out in the year 2024 (oh, that’s this very year!)

is it the newer bloodstained dlc Dominique’s curse?

Nope! This is a full game release, not a demo or DLC.

So it’s not that Ys-like Melos Han Tani’s been making…

No, it’s not.

Here’s another big hint:

This is a handheld exclusive title.

wait, It’s not Kien is it?

No, but that’s a pretty good guess given my hints!

So it’s a playdate game? Are there other handhelds releasing games in 2024?

I don’t think any dedicated handhelds are still cranking games out quite like the Playdate.

Oh, this is Mars after Midnight!


You got it!


Mars After Midnight is the latest game from Lucas Pope (Papers, Please, Return of the Obra Dinn) and is a playdate exclusive about facilitating supports groups at a community center on Mars (I know I said there were animals in this game, and there is one segment with gnats [learning how to properly handle knives]).

The game is a blast, and probably my favorite thing on Playdate.


Okay Insert Credit, what’s this?


*taps the microphone to test if it’s still on*

Mario paint!

Good guess! Here’s a longer clip:


Is it a Data East arcade puzzle game of some variety? Because that’s the impression I’m getting from these clips.



Closer! This is a Japanese arcade game from that era, though not a Data East one.
