Lua Showcase

Lua is used in many products and projects around the world. Here are some highlights. A different selection is shown every day.

VLC Angry Birds Volvo Blackmagic Fusion
The widely used VLC media player is scriptable in Lua. The widely popular game Angry Birds is mostly written in Lua. See a talk by Jaakko Lisalo at the Game Design Expo 2011. Volvo cars like the V40 Cross Country embed Lua in their combined instrument panel. Blackmagic Fusion, a post-production image compositing software used extensively in the movie industry, uses Lua as one of its embedded scripting languages.
Celestia Corona Grim Fandango Wikipedia
Celestia is a real-time 3D visualization of space that can be scripted with Lua. Corona is a free Lua-based cross-platform framework ideal for rapidly creating apps and games for mobile devices and desktop systems. "Grim Fandango was the first game that shows Lua could not only be used to make a good game, but that it could be used to make some of the best games ever." (cited here; see also this) Wikipedia uses Lua as its template scripting language. Read the announcement.
