to any LD love users, here’s a little python script to help with packaging up your games for distribution. it can run on any platform, and it creates a .love file and zips with executables for windows and mac. all you need is the script; it downloads the love binaries and libraries for you. i might add linux support later but packaging for that is a bit tricky and i’ll need to come up with a linux system to test on. it requires python 2.6 or greater. let me know if you find any bugs.
run with -h for help. here’s a usage example:
python lovedist.py -d felinus/game -n felinus -b com.maxcrane.felinus -N felinus0
i added a mac version of my game FELINUS using this. i also wrote a little strategy guide for anyone who was having trouble figuring it out. find these at the link below. i’m going to write a postmortem for the game soon.
the theme is not really inspiring me that much so i’m planning on spending the weekend working on my game from the last competition, the dream forest. i’ve made some progress since the end of LD21, but not nearly as much as i was hoping to have made by now. this time’s theme is actually quite relevant to the story i want to tell with it. here are some screenshots of my progress since the LD21 version:
