LÖVE is a game framework which allows you to make your own 2D games with Lua. Your game can easily be played by anyone with LÖVE installed on their Windows, Mac or Linux computer.
It has support for many image and audio formats, physics, networking, particle effects, and also has some user-made libraries (downloaded separately) to make developing games even easier.

Hey! I'm the solo developer of Delta Squared, an arcade-like Shmup! I'm happy that I'm finally able to release it after polishing it up! The game has 2 game modes, ARCADE and INSANE. The first has infinite continues, while the latter does not! The game also features Local Coop and 2 different Color Palettes to unlock! Just beware that some boss fights are pretty hard.

Available now on Itchio: Thiago-avidos.itch.io

Here's the release trailer:

Battle FEARSOME Bosses:

Face a variety of different enemies:

More Details:

The game features 4 Levels in total. It's a quite short game, but I tried my best to make a really fun experience. There are also different Color Palettes to unlock. I've made those 2 modes, ARCADE and INSANE, because of the different player's skill levels, so I've incorporated the arcade style, in which you have infinite continues and the game's difficulty starts a little bit harder than usual.

I decided to go for a more relaxed gameplay by giving the player 3 hit points before losing one life, but in the end the game turned out to be harder than I've initially planned, even including some bullet hell-like shooting patterns.

The game story is pretty straightforward, the Square Army is invading Delta Town. They want to transform all citizens into squares, and only you can save them.

It feels good finishing this game, it's my first commercial project so here it is!

If you play it I would love some feedback and such! Thank you for reading this post btw!

this engine would be extremely cool if it had a built-in IDE that you could run the scripts through instantly, but i do see the challenges that that would make for the developers of love

Usually you can intergrate a build command for Love in lots of text editors, making it easy to package games instantly.

That kind of sucks, that you have to have Love on your computer in order to play the games... i mean you should make it so the games can be run without having to have Love on your computer...

That's been possible since the dawn of time. It's up to the creator of the game if he wants to do that though.

"Your game can easily be played by anyone with LÖVE installed on their Windows, Mac or Linux computer." Says this engines description.

It's outdated, old versions required LOVE installed (or the binary); new versions allow lovers (us developers, not LOVE developers but game developers in love) to compile their project so you dont need love.
