ChilloutVR Lua Scripting

ChilloutVR uses a slightly-modified version of Lua to allow you to create dynamic, scripted behaviours for in-game avatars, props, and worlds.


Keep in mind that the name of the language is spelled Lua, which is the Portugese word for Moon. Lua is not an acronym, but a proper noun.

About Lua

Lua is one of the oldest, but most-used purpose-made embedded scripting languages on the planet, and is used in many games and applications.

While the syntax appears archaic, and lacks features that newer languages have, its simplicity gift it speed and efficiency unmatched by its competitors.

Alpha Blend Interactive spent considerable time looking at alternatives, and after much research, ultimately decided that Lua was the best fit for our needs.

We hope you enjoy creating with it!
