playdate.getPlayerNickName()

It would be nice if the user could enter a player name / nickname for themselves in the system settings.

This can then be used in-game as suggestion in a character-creation screen, or leaderboard entry.

This prevents users from re-typing their nick into every game, which would be a chore with the on screen keyboard.

Perhaps there should be a 10-char character limit. That would make it more practical for use in dialog boxes with limited space.

+1, this is a great idea.

Good idea. I'm thinking that better than having auniversal limit imposed on all games, just let any given game truncate as its needs demand.

Seems like there is now an option to enter a player name in your account. Hopeful that this means this will be available in the SDK soon?

Cool! I am now Adams_Immersive

Reading that name would be handy—or a whole leaderboard system like the Season games.
