LOVE is an open-source 2D game development framework that uses the scripting language Lua. Designed for making sprite-based interactive media, LOVE has everything developers need to get started — from input and graphics libraries to sound support and networking functionality. The engine operates on Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android platforms. With its simple but effective API structure, it allows users to focus on game content and logic without getting tangled in complex tools or heavy overheads associated with larger engines. Games made with LOVE can be easily shared across different operating systems due to its widely compatible nature.
