Catalog is the official storefront from Panic, accessible both on-device and on Playdate's website, allowing people to purchase and download a curated selection of games. It was announced on the Early 2022 Playdate Update, and officially released on March 7th, 2023 alongside Playdate Update #3.

Unlike other Playdate game storefronts such as, Catalog features a selection of games hand-picked by the Panic team, including games made by Panic members, as well as games from third-party Playdate developers. Some games are brand-new and exclusive to the Catalog storefront, while others may have released elsewhere previously, or still be sold on other platforms such as itch.

Catalog's games are released in batches called "Drops", updated sporadically. The schedule for Drops aren't confirmed on a wide scale, but they're speculated to be monthly.[1] New batches of games are indicated by a blinking, aqua-colored light located on the device's Lock button, which lights up after checking in to Panic's servers.
