Oh, no wonder why people hold Lua in respect, I actually never knew what it was I just knew that people liked it. Well this is useful, I'll look into it, but if somebody has further recommendations let me know. All I know is I'll be working exclusively with SDL, OpenGL, and the like for portability, so I'm not entirely sure what will work best. Thank you very much!
Yeah, I think I'll go with the library idea for now, that seems simpler and I think I'll learn Lua or something eventually.
