LÖVE is an awesome framework you can use to make 2D games in Lua. It's free, open-source, and works on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
Use the project files for Visual Studio 2010 located in the platform dir.
platform/unix/automagic from the repository root, then run ./configure and make.
$ platform/unix/automagic $ ./configure $ make
Use the XCode project in platform/macosx.
For both Windows and OSX there are dependencies available here.
We use the 'default' branch for development, and therefore it should not be considered stable. Also used is the 'minor' branch, which is used for features in the next minor version and it is not our development target (which would be the next revision). (Version numbers formatted major.minor.revision.)
We tag all our releases (since we started using mercurial), and have binary downloads available for them.
There are also unstable/nightly builds:
- Most can be found here.
- For ubuntu linux they are in ppa:bartbes/love-unstable
- For arch linux there's love-hg in the AUR.
- Lua / LuaJIT / LLVM-lua
- DevIL with MNG and TIFF
