Love Update #8, The Big One



Love has been on Steam for 365 days, and what better way to celebrate than to release a sizable update?

  • Love now has 16 levels in the main game.
  • Now included: Remix mode. 7 remixed or unused levels added under
  • New Leaderboards for High Score and Speedrun Mode
  • New Scoring metrics. The faster you are, the better your score truly will be.
  • Analog control support for XInput Controllers. Nudge the joystick to move more slowly.
  • Previous levels given a little more polish and attention.
  • Some animations fixed and smoothed
  • Updated credits section
  • Updated menus

I hope this update finds you well on Valentine's Day, and more updates and tweaks will be forthcoming. The main game is now finished, but I'll be adding more to the Remix Levels and Level Select in the future.

What else have I been doing with my time? Well, I have a podcast that updates every week, and a YouTube series that updates every day. Give Lone Stars a watch!

About This Game

Love is a reductive platforming game with a retro aesthetic and a focus on a challenging difficulty. It has an custom respawn system, 16 levels, 12 track soundtrack, competitive scoring, and a simple-to-use level creation feature.

The challenging levels are balanced with the inclusion of a simple yet unique respawn system wherein the player can leave a checkpoint at any location at any point, as long as they are on solid ground. Players have a number of gameplay modes to choose from, whether they want it easy, normal, or they want to try their hand at a mode designed specifically for Speed Running.

Beyond the visual aesthetic, the challenging level design, and the abundance of features, there is the fantastic soundtrack composed by James Bennett, which brings the simple 3-color atmospheres to life.

I may not love Love, but I dig it quite a bit.

Nice music and solid platforming which demands a high degree of precision in order to progress even with the alloted 100 lives. The distinctive retro aesthetics make this an easy recommendation for genre fans, especially given the low price which is absolutely worth it in this fella's opinion.

What a great retro-style platformer. Quite a surprise...

Extremely fluid controls, solid and challenging level design. Sound and music are perfectly suited and not annoying.

For something basic, this is really about as good as it gets. Recommended to any fan of 2D platformers.

A fun and simple platformer game. It's a LOVE for me.
Nothing worth mentioning anymore cause you don't need a reason to love someone.
It's just "LOVE".

This deceptively simple and basic platformer is an absolute delight. After playing and beating the game in about 20 mins, I went on to playing it again, and again and again and again. The soundtrack is superb and the gives the game a feeling of depth and meaning. It's a platformer in the truest sense and it it's immensly enjoyable. I have gifted about ten copies of this game to people whom have all loved it. Buy Buy Buy, for the low asking price, it's silly not to own this this gem.

Who the ♥♥♥♥ caps a game like this at 30fps? Killer OST and I dig the Aesthetic, but come on. I still kinda recommend it.
