Playdate is a forthcoming handheld console with a crank controller. Sure, it has a D-pad and at least two other buttons, but the most important thing about it is that it has a crank. Oh, and you can play Doom on it, too.

Game developer Nic Magnier posted footage of his port on Twitter earlier this week. The game doesn’t look like it’s well-suited to the device, which has a monochrome screen and, again, a crank. But it’s never really mattered whether Doom is actually fun on any device, what matters is that the device can run it. You can play Doom on a printer, an oscilloscope, an ATM, and inside Doom itself, so playing it on a console with a crank isn’t that weird.
