Hello, I am currently in development stage of making a platformer for the PlayDate I have noticed a lack on those on itch io so I thought it would be a good idea so I was wondering. Can I add a check point or Save and Load File System to my game. Can I add it where the player saves there game, loads there game or starts a new game. Thank you in advance.
It's absolutely possible. Usually, that's something you handle by yourself depending on the game logic, take a look at playdate.datastore to persist your data: Inside Playdate
You can store the game state (level, progress, health and so on) in a Lua table and just save and read it.
