Maybe this question should be addressed on the wiki, looks like it's asked often enough: https://www.google.com/search?q=protect ... love2d.org

I would wish to such page to encourage not to protect the source though.

Wait... So it is possible to extract and have access to the source code of Move or Die, Blue Revolver, etc? Sounds a nice way of learn and see how people do things.
I recently started a topic related to that: https://love2d.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=87910

Just look at this 3,500 line switch-case statement:

https://github.com/TerryCavanagh/VVVVVV ... e.cpp#L605
Jesus, a switch statement going up to magic number 4099, not to mention the lack of any comment in most of the cases and the complexity nested in some of them.

If it works, it ain't stupid :P
And even if it is, the game's released, while others are trying to write clean code and will never release their games. :|
Me and my stuff :3True Neutral Aspirant. Why, yes, i do indeed enjoy sarcastically correcting others when they make the most blatant of spelling mistakes. No bullying or trolling the innocent tho.

Yeah, the game code doesn't needs to be good, it just needs to function. At some point it also needs to be fast, but at no point it needs to be elegant.
