This project cannot easily be built from source. If you would like to try using it, download the installer from the downloads section. Windows only. When creating a new project using the IDE, make sure to place it in an empty directory.


Game Kitchen is an editor designed specifically for creating games for the love framework ( It has a full IDE feature set, which includes the following: a debugger, intellisense, go to definition, efficient project traversal, and even an optional type checker.

Static Type Checker

Game Kitchen includes a somewhat experimental Type System. As far as I know, this is one of the most in-depth static type checkers available for lua. The type checker operates interactively, highlighting errors during programming which wouldn't have otherwise surfaced until runtime.
