Cannot run the game. Missing: love.dll, lua51.dll and SDL2.dll

Yep, same problem here on the Windows version.

You need to include the dll's that come with the downloadable zipped version of love to get the exe working.
Anyway, fun game and a cool idea.
The death animation was... unexpected.

Sad times, I'm on a mac and I don't have love :(

Is there some way to package love things for web?

Sorry about that, if anyone else comes along you can install love2d and run the love version.

Heh I liked it. Maybe you can make the detection area of the chiefs visible so the stealth part of the game become more challenging. And death animation is golden :-D
