Here are some key features of "LOVE":
� Licensed under the liberal zlib license.

Lua based games
� Every game is created in the scripting language Lua, meaning that it doesn't take a degree in computer engineering for someone to create an interesting and entertaining gaming experience.
� Fast OpenGL powerered graphics.
� All the common image formats are supported, such as JPG, PNG, GIF, BMP and TGA.
� Separate audio channels for music and sound effects, as well as full support for MP3, Ogg Vorbis and MIDI files.
High quality text rendering
� Support for fully anti-aliased TrueType and OpenType fonts.
In Windows or other graphical enviroments, just drag the directory (or archive) you want to run onto the executable. (~^-^)~
In a console, type "love" followed by the relative or absolute path to a directory (or archive).
* love mygame.love
* love /home/hax/ultragame
Remember that what you are trying to run at least should contain the file "main.lua".
