SDK 1 versus SDK 2, should I make 2 versions of every game?


I'm developing games in Lua and am in the process of upgrading them to 2.0. I noticed in the playdate help page 'Getting your games ready for Playdate 2.0' ( Getting your games ready for Playdate OS 2.0 - Playdate Help ) that upgrading would result in my games no longer being compatible with older playdate versions (Rev A / OS 1.x). When releasing onto sites like, should I be supplying them with 2 versions of the game, one for 2.0 and one for 1.0, to support people with older devices?

All devices support OS 2.0 so there isn't a real need to do a specific 1.x build. Hope that helps.
