Well, I have found some articles focused on how create your own scripting language for your game, but I want to use an existing language (exactly Ruby (www.ruby-lang.org)). Questions: - where I can found information about this ? - what aspects of the game you think I can made with the scripting language? - some suggestion ? thx

Search, and look at the available scripting languages'' documentation (LUA, Python, Ruby, etc)

Anything, except for things that are speed critical. Just don''t be culling or drawing any pythons with it =)

Find an embeddable language you''re very comfortable with, and play around with its interpreter first. You don''t want to spend time embedding a language you won''t end up using that much

I know it''s not exactly what you have in mind, but there was a very interesting article on Gamasutra lately about integrating Python into a game engine as a scripting language. Might be of some use to you.

Hi!

I am looking for a scripting language too.

First i thought to work with pyhton, but ruby also look very interesting. The programming interface seems simple, and the object orientation is also a point for ruby.

Has anyone experiences with ruby ?
