I bought the Playdate mostly for the purpose of writing fun programs to run on it. It has a really nice crank, which immediately made me think of a music box. I checked out some other existing music box programs people had already made for the Playdate, but they were all pretty limited in things like song length and range of notes. So I decided to make my own.
My goals for the jam were:
- Playback of songs using the crank.
- Ability to create/edit songs, adding and removing notes
