The objective of this tutorial is teaching you how to use LÖVE to create a tile-based level with a moving character, collisions and scrolling.
This tutorial is divided on 4 main parts, and each of those in several sections, or “steps”.
Most people will want to start on part 1 (Tiles). If you are not familiar with Lua or LÖVE itself, start on part 0 (Basic stuff)
0. Basic stuff
This part covers the basis of LÖVE and Lua. If you are new to the engine or the language, you should start here. If you already know Lua and have a solid understanding of LÖVE, you can skip to chapter 1.
This first part of the tutorial concentrates on loading and drawing the tiles themselves.
This part deals with objects, the player, and basic collision.
3. Scrolling (temporary name)
What this part will cover is still uncertain. It will quite probably involve scrolling.

Thanks to him for providing the artistic muscle I lack.
