A game in one day

using LUA and Love

Slides and Source

I was asked to do a presentation to a High school class, and this is what I did. A complete (if simple) game written in LUA using the LOVE framework.

I tested this on Mac and Windows. Here are the tools and steps I used for each:


Mac



TextWrangler
Terminal
LOVE

To run the source I chose to use terminal, set my path to include LOVE, and use the following command(from inside the folder with the source and resources) :
Create the love file:
zip -r ${PWD}.love *
Run the love file:
love .love

Windows



Notepad++
LOVE
