As much as I love Lua, I’m not sure why I don’t love LÖVE. It’s now been updated to version 0.9.0 — maybe I’ll love it when it hits 1.0?
In case you’re not familiar with it, from their web site: “LÖVE is a framework for making 2D games in the Lua programming language. LÖVE is totally free, and can be used in anything from friendly open-source hobby projects, to evil, closed-source commercial ones.”
Oh yeah, maybe that’s it — freakin’ hippies.
