On the just-released OS X 10.9 Mavericks, Not Tetris 2 and Not Pacman at least completely fail to launch, displaying instead a window titled "LOVE 0.7.2 (Game Slave)" and an animated image that looks like this:

The games worked fine on OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion prior to upgrading.

That happens probably because you're using the version 0.7.0 instead of 0.7.2.
Just go to LOVE forums and download the current version.
And welcome to the forums! We hope you stay in!

No, I'm using the pre-compiled OS X binaries available on your web site, which include love 0.7.2. The screenshot above is from the love website and clearly from Windows, not from my OS X system, but it shows the same image I see.

Yeah, the problem is that 0.7.2 don't work on maverick.
slime posted a version of 0.8.0 that work with maverick, but it's 0.8.0 so it don't work.
Maybe someone should start a 0.9.0 port of not tetris 2.

As for not pacman, you're in luck because I made a 0.8.0 version of the game!
Slime's OSX 10.9 version of love 0.8.0 : https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/4214717/love-osx-mavericks-fixed.zip
My 0.8.0 version of not pacman : https://www.dropbox.com/s/slrmy9651n0kihe/notpacman080.love
Run the second with the first and it should work

After several days of work with the developers of love, I've managed to get the latest love 0.9.0 compiling and running on OS X 10.9. I'll be making it available in MacPorts soon.

I am now working on porting Not Tetris 2 to work with love 0.9.0.
