    Project mention: How can it take to learn love2d? | /r/love2d | 2023-01-17

    There's this nice tutorial made by the bytepath developer. It gives you a good ground for you to build your own stuff, it teaches you how to handle scenes, asset management, and object creation, as well as some game mechanics, but you can skip this part. You can also download other people love2d games, extract the files and see how they did things, I do this a lot when I want to know how to implement certain mechanic.

    Project mention: Releasing a game on Steam | /r/gamedev | 2023-12-06

    One thing that really helped me is looking at the source code and assets of one game that I really enjoyed -- SNKRX, the creator of the game, a327ex, put everything on Github so you can take a look how a finished game looks: The repo even includes the various images needed for Steam, this was very nice so I could make sure some of the assets I made aren't unfit for their purpose: . There are also some Photoshop files provided on the Steamworks FAQ which are very useful too, but they mainly show just in which area of the image you shouldn't put important text etc.

    Planimeter Game Engine 2D - LÖVE-based game engine for Lua

    Project mention: Fighting games use delay-based and rollback netcode | | 2023-01-22

    I don't think it's unpopular. We need more and better game software, what exists today is unsatisfactory for a plethora of reasons. I'm personally interested in this because I ship Planimeter Game Engine 2D, which comes with client-side prediction standard, and it's the largest pure-Lua game engine on GitHub.[1]


  • picolove

    PICO-8 Reimplementation in Love2D. Chat:

    Project mention: Pico 8 in other software | /r/pico8 | 2023-12-06

    Picolove, written in lua for love2d: a very good starting point, especially if the engine you're using has support for lua. Has been used for "expanded" versions of games, because it's very easy to modify the resolution of the display and things like that. Works for simpler carts like Celeste, but is not memory accurate!
