I've used Python before with PyGame to make games, but PyGame doesn't seem to be so popular anymore, and there arent that many good resources for it. I hear lots of buzz about Lua as a fast scripting language to be used inside of projects made in other languages.
I work much faster and enjoy the higher-level programming that is Python, so that naturally leads me to Lua, which seems to be getting a lot of attention recently. I know it's been around for a while but I think WoW add-on creation made it more popular..
Can Lua make games on its own as a stand-alone language with any 2D or 3D libraries, or is that not really the Lua domain?
I won't bother asking about 3D in Python here, I'll make a new question for that. Thanks!
