LOVE is an open-source 2D game engine which uses the versatile Lua scripting language to create dynamic gaming experiences.

Here are some key features of "LOVE":

пїЅ Licensed under the liberal zlib license.

пїЅ LпїЅVE is being developed for Windows, Linux and Mac.

Lua based games
пїЅ Every game is created in the scripting language Lua, meaning that it doesn't take a degree in computer engineering for someone to create an interesting and entertaining gaming experience.

Hardware acceleration
пїЅ Fast OpenGL powerered graphics.

пїЅ All the common image formats are supported, such as JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP and TGA.

пїЅ Separate audio channels for music and sound effects, as well as full support for MP3, Ogg Vorbis and MIDI files.

High quality text rendering
пїЅ Support for fully anti-aliased TrueType and OpenType fonts.


In Windows or other graphical enviroments, just drag the directory (or archive) you want to run onto the executable. (~^-^)~

In a console, type "love" followed by the relative or absolute path to a directory (or archive).


* love mygame.love
* love /home/hax/ultragame

Remember that what you are trying to run at least should contain the file "main.lua".
