Lua is relatively easy. Love2D is just a very nice engine that uses Lua, it has really intuitive functions for the basics such as drawing, audio and what not, and it's easy to run the things you make. Yes you have to program, but it's a fun way to go about it I think. :)
I don't mind programming as such, it's just that I'm not good at it. :-P I'm good with HTML/CSS and really enjoy coding stuff from scratch when it comes to websites, but functional programming I've never wrapped my head around. I saw that Lua is also used by PICO-8 (which looks adorable). But yes. It feels good to have motivation to try more programming!
