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. RUNNING GAMES ------------- In Windows or other graphical enviroments, just open the .love file you want to run with the love binary, such as love.exe. (~^-^)~ In a console, type "love" followed by the relative or absolute path to a directory (or archive). Examples: * love mygame.love * love /home/hax/ultragame Remember that what you are trying to run at least should contain the file "main.lua". Compilation ----------- Windows: Use the project files for Visual C++ 2008 or 2010 (2010 preferred) located in the platform dir. *nix: Run platform/unix/automagic, then run ./configure and make. OSX: Use the XCode project in platform/macosx. Dependencies ------------ -SDL -OpenGL -OpenAL -Lua -LuaJIT -DevIL with MNG and TIFF -FreeType -PhysicsFS -ModPlug -mpg123 -Vorbisfile ! WARNING ! ----------- This software is not complete. This is just a preview. Don't expect to find any interface consistencies between releases at all. With each release, everything you once knew and loved may be brutally murdered. By which I mean removed and/or changed.
