Hi there! LÖVE is here :)

Hi there! LÖVE is an awesome framework you can use to make 2D games in Lua. It's free, open-source, and works on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Android and iOS.

LÖVE is licensed under the liberal zlib/libpng license. This means that:

  • It costs nothing.
  • You can use it freely for commercial purposes with no limitations.

NOTE: I just packaged this framework in snap packaging format the original author as mentioned in website is "" for further queries contact him or visit - for more information about the project.

WHY I PACKAGED IT IN SNAP: In Ubuntu's Official repository there's a older version of LOVE and am myself learning LOVE these days so to bring the latest version 11.1 i decided to snap it and share with you guys.

HOW TO USE: open terminal and type the commands like this to run a .love game package:

     love2d "absolute path to the .love archive"  

Example: if my .love file or folder is in Downloads directory in my home folder:

    love2d ~/Downloads/
