Löve tutorial series [Youtube] All 6 episodes are out!

Post by Jeeper » Fri Jul 24, 2020 6:38 pm

For a long time (think years) I have been interested in making a tutorial series on Löve. I have actually started to make one 4 times in the past, but ultimately scrapped them and shelved the idea. That's why I am very happy to finally be able to announce that this time is different :awesome:

I have finished series of 6 episodes in total, aimed at beginners who want to start making games. I just uploaded the first episode, and will be posting a new one every 2-3 days. I will link them here as they are released!

Here is the first episode of the series:



My plan is to continue making new tutorial series, so if you have any suggestions on what kind of topics you would like me to cover, feel free to let me know! I intend to create both longer series (For an example "Making X game") and single videos covering a specific topic.

E1 - Introduction and setup
E2 - Crash course in Lua and Löve
E3 - Pong, creating the player
E4 - Pong, creating the ball
E5 - Pong, creating an AI opponent
E6 - Pong, adding assets

Hey, glad to hear your going to watch it, let me know what you think. I am not used to making videos, so I am open for feedback :)

Just released episode two, also outlined the episodes that will come in the OP.


This episode goes through some very basic Lua and Löve stuff in order to prepare you for next 4 episodes where we will make Pong :awesome:

:awesome:
Whenever I see a tutorial, I try to step back from the point of view of a noob. So far, I can say that your videos are on a high-quality polished level. The concise but meaningful definitions, the flow, even the overall presentation.

Personally, I find it "too slow because I want to code already". But then again: I prefer to know what my code does so that when I try to deviate from the tutorial, I still won't get lost. So, the "slowness" is worth it.

Oh please, please! Do more.

Nice, you have good editing skill so it's not boring to hear. Also the small lengh is good. What do you use to edit your videos ?

Thank you for the kind words, yeah it's a tricky balancing act between not being to slow and boring but also managing to explain things properly. My intention is to continue making tutorial series after this one, even though it takes a lot of time, it's really fun :awesome:

Just released Episode 4, in this episode I cover AABB collision detection and add a ball for the game.



That's the 4th video in the series out of 6 in total. I am already planning the next tutorial series, and would love any feedback you have for me on how to improve it going forward :)

I literally just stumbled onto Love yesterday after spending a lot of time trying to learn Unity, no experience at all with Lua. These tutorials are a godsend, perfect pace and perfect level of simplicity. Please keep them coming!! :ultraglee:

Really glad to hear that you like it, because I made this series with people like you in mind! Is there anything you wish that I did differently/better for the next tutorial series?

Speaking of "keeping them coming", I just released episode 5! :D
