Lua is a small and simple C-like programming language, arguably easier to learn and teach than Python. The LÖVE game engine is a gaming platform that runs on all major operating systems as well as Android phones, providing a fast and easy way to develop high-quality games, entirely with open source technology.

This presentation provides an overview of Lua in the context of the LÖVE engine, and demonstrates the workflow of packaging a game for distribution on popular platforms like Itch and Android.
