Love2d vs Unity3d

Posted in Content by Dawson Goodell

Awhile back I wrote a little blog post talking about how I was playing around with Love2d and with Unity3d.  I didn’t expect that little blog post (read it here) to start collecting dozens of hits all from people looking for a comparison between Love2d and Unity3d.  For me it’s a pretty simple question.  They’re nothing alike.  But still there were people asking me which one they should use.  As a result I wrote a long post on the topic for OSMstudios.
