Personal SAM-Y

Did you pick up the new version of Shift and think to yourself "Gosh, I sure wish I had a SAM-Y of my very own that would chirp, beep and make funny faces at me all day long ... "?

Of course you did! Wait, what?! You didn't? Begone, you joyless curmudgeon!


  • Your very own SAM-Y!
  • Patented Shake-to-Annoy™ Technology!
  • Extra-patented AI Mimicry™ Algorithm!
  • Several fun sound effects!
  • Tens of facial expressions!
  • An always-on option in the likely event that no SAM-Y is too dark and cold of an existence for you!
  • Innovative date and time display!
  • Ground-breaking 24 hour time option if you live in the vast majority of the world that prefers that!


Press the A Button to cycle through random expressions. SAM-Y will do this on their own, too.
Press the B Button to record three seconds of audio and then hear it played back in SAM-Y's voice.


There are three options available in the pause view.
  • 24hr clock will toggle between a 24 and 12 hour clock.
  • Sound allows you to toggle sound effects on and off.
  • Always on will prevent your Playdate from falling asleep so you can use SAM-Y as a desktop clock and ever faithful companion. When this option is enabled a battery level indicator will appear in the top left of the screen.


He looks to the right!
He can look to his left! And even your right!
You made him sad! You monster!
You made him sad! You monster!
Yay! He's happy again!
Yay! He's happy again! I apologize for calling you a monster.
