LÖVE is an *awesome* framework Developed by The Love Team that you can use to make 2D games in Lua. It’s free, open-source, and works on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. The LÖVE engine is licensed under The zlib/libpng License (which is very short and human readable) which allows you to use the source code and even modify it as long as you do not claim that the original source code is yours. Games such as Mr. Rescue, Move or Die, and RETRO BUG – BLASTING ACTION use the Love engine, and they play very well and smooth. Compared to other engines the love engine seems to be a strong competitor and the fact that it is free makes it even more attractive.
