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.

About Totem's Sound with 0 comments by MercuryLegba on Oct 6th, 2014

We are proud to finally announce that Totem's Sound is available for download at the wonderful IndieDB. Wonder and wander in this compact, yet compelling action RPG that is based on the adventures of the Norwegian explorer Johan Adrian Jacobsen.


This is the story of the Norwegian explorer Johan Adrian Jacobsen. From 1881 to 1883 he travelled along the northwestern coasts of the Americas. Commissioned by a support comitee, he purchased and catalogued an immense number of artefacts and objects from local tribes for the German Humboldt Foundation. Totem's Sound is based on his personal accounts. Well, almost. Enjoy a day of Johan's journey, featuring great outdoor activities such as canoe races, collecting clams, not getting eaten by a giant grizzley and of course fish oil binge drinking. Get in contact with the local tribes, that are struggling to preserve their ways of life and their cultures in a rapidly changing world.


  • Collect 5 different Artifacts
  • A very serious but fun RPG
  • Pixels by Adeline Ducker!
  • Lots of bears, wolves and seals
  • Sound and Music by Karl Zechenter
  • Amazing World to Explore
  • Canoeing, Drinking and Dancing


Totem's Sound was conceived and produced by gold extra with the support of Causa Creations in the framework of the Humboldt Lab Dahlem, a project by the Kulturstiftung des Bundes in collaboration with the Foundation Preussischer Kulturbesitz Berlin. As part of Rehersal Stage 4 - Travelogue Totem's Sound is being shown in the Museum Dahlen from 23.09.2014 to 08.02.2015.

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

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It's outdated, old versions required LOVE installed (or the binary); new versions allow lovers (us developers, not LOVE developers but game developers in love) to compile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