Swim to escape by manipulating the liquids around you!

The portable .love file requires having the LOVE 2D game engine installed, version 0.9.x or 0.10.x.

The level editor can be accessed with f2.

Note that pipes must be connected to two tanks to function.

You can package up levels you've created to share with others! The location they are saved to varies by platform:

  • Windows: C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\LOVE\liquid-runner\levels or %appdata%\LOVE\liquid-runner\levels
  • Linux: $XDG_DATA_HOME/love/liquid-runner/levels or ~/.local/share/love/liquid-runner/levels
  • Mac: /Users/user/Library/Application Support/LOVE/liquid-runner/levels

Source code for the game is available under the GPLv3 license.

Check out my other game EXO_encounter 667 which is much better!
