I'm investigating about virtual machines and their use in Games.
I'm looking for something cross-platform (at least win/mac/linux, mobile and consoles are a nice to have but not mandatory) and it would be nice if it could be binded to the usual things that you need for a game, like a graphics and sound lib. If it had any sort of automatic garbage collection, it would be nice, too. And since I want to use it for games, it should be fast and not very memory-consuming.
So far I've found:
I'm leaving the Java Virtual Machine and .net VM out of this list since I feel they are a bit too big for my purposes - but I'm far from an expert on these things. If you think I should include them, please put your reasons below.
Am I missing any important one?
PS: I think this should be a community wiki, but I don't seem to be able to mark it as one.
EDIT: My final objective is creating a scripting language for game development. I've no problem with interpreters (have implemented a couple in the past) but this time I'd like to translate the Abstract Syntax Tree of my language to a VM, for efficiency mostly.
