Playdate is a handheld video game console created by Panic. Game developers can use the Playdate Software Development Kit (SDK) to create games for Playdate. These game development projects typically consist of .LUA source code and game assets saved in various image and audio formats, such as .PNG, .WAV, and .MP3 files.

After a developer has finished developing their Playdate game, they can use the Playdate Compiler (pdc) to compile their game into an executable package. These packages are saved as PDX files. In Windows and Linux, PDX files appear as normal directories, which you can open and examine as you would any other directory. In macOS, PDX files appear as macOS packages.

How to open a PDX file

You can open a PDX file with Playdate Simulator, a Playdate console simulator included with the Playdate SDK. This allows you to play the game your PDX file contains. To open a PDX file with Playdate Simulator, open the app, select File → Open, and then navigate to and open your PDX file.
