A downloadable guide
disclaimer: I'm **not** associated with the LÖVE team nor this guide is offical in any way.
A bunch of people asked me recently about LÖVE so I figured there is a need for a little guide. This one helps you with writting a simple but feature-complete platforemer. After you finish all 10 lessons (I have no idea how much time it's supposed to take, my guess a weekend maybe?, maybe one afternoon?) you should be able to write your own basic game with some some puzzles and enemies.
This guide is written for people who know basic programming concepts (variables functions, loops, etc).
Start with reading the README file.
If you find anything that you feel like could be improved than feel free to point it out :) Keep in might though that code was not ment to show how a platformer game should look like but to be as easy as possible for a beginner to understand.
If you find anything unclear or badly explained than I'd be happy to fix that as well.
If you finish a game based on this guide I'd be happy to see it - feel free to post it in the comments.
Have fun :)
