LÖVE is a game framework which allows you to make your own 2D games with Lua. Your game can easily be played by anyone with LÖVE installed on their Windows, Mac or Linux computer.
It has support for many image and audio formats, physics, networking, particle effects, and also has some user-made libraries (downloaded separately) to make developing games even easier.

this engine would be extremely cool if it had a built-in IDE that you could run the scripts through instantly, but i do see the challenges that that would make for the developers of love

Usually you can intergrate a build command for Love in lots of text editors, making it easy to package games instantly.

That kind of sucks, that you have to have Love on your computer in order to play the games... i mean you should make it so the games can be run without having to have Love on your computer...

That's been possible since the dawn of time. It's up to the creator of the game if he wants to do that though.

It's outdated, old versions required LOVE installed (or the binary); new versions allow lovers (us developers, not LOVE developers but game developers in love) to compile their project so you dont need love.
