Hi there! 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.

Documentation

The wiki will help you get started, and contains a description of the entire API. It is collaboratively edited by LÖVE users — getting bigger and better every day.


Also, the wiki theme is pretty cool.

Community

If you get stuck, many friendly people are ready to help you at the forums. Be warned, however, that it sometimes gets too friendly.


People also post their games and projects on the forums, so it's a nice way of exploring what LÖVE can do. Or at least what people choose to use it for.


There is also an IRC channel: #love@irc.oftc.net.

Games

LÖVE has been used for commercial projects, game jams, prototyping, and everything in between. Here are a few examples.

You can find the source code on Bitbucket. You can also file bugs and feature requests there.
