Haha, nice catch. I wrote that shell script about 5 minutes prior to submitting. Should be fixed now.

Your love detection is a little flawed.

$ love --version
LOVE 0.10.0 ()
$ ./black_hat.sh
Error: LOVE is only version 0.1.* and version 0.9.* is needed

Adding a asterisk after the number match fixes it:

[[ $( love --version 2>/dev/null ) =~ "LOVE 0."([0-9]*) ]] && {

That was my bad, it was an old requirement that I've fixed now (so utf8 isn't required).

The game also seems to require utf8. You might want to add instructions for installing it. Something like "sudo apt-get install luarocks" and "sudo luarocks install utf8".
