Developer Fred Wood already had 'LOVE 2: kuso' available on Linux, however the original wasn't. That changed last week, as LOVE got a huge upgrade and Linux support came with it.

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

Originally released in 2014, last week Wood gave it a massive update. This free update added in 60FPS support, Linux support, "Coyote Frames" to give you an additional five frames after walking off a platform to hit jump, your checkpoint can now die apparently so "don't leave it sitting under some acid or on a disappearing platform" and a bunch more.

Seems a lot of people have enjoyed it, as it has a "Very Positive" rating on Steam from over 700 user reviews counted. On itch, it has five/five stars too although that's only from 11 ratings total. So overall, looks like another quality platformer to add to your growing library of Linux games.

Feature Highlight:

  • 16 Levels
  • 7-Level Remix Mode
  • Online Leaderboards
  • Speedrun Mode for intense competition
  • 19 Achievements
  • Multi-faceted scoring system for competitive play
  • Unique Respawn Mechanic
  • Xinput-based Gamepad Support
  • Level Editor

You can pick up LOVE on Humble Store, and Steam.
