Ketos: Lisp dialect scripting and extension language for Rust programs
4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 22 Sep 2021
I messed around with and contributed to this project a bit. The biggest challenge I saw in day to day usage was that line numbers aren't included in error messages: https://github.com/murarth/ketos/issues/114 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 22 Sep 2021

How does this compare to Ketos?

Perhaps https://mun-lang.org? Might be a bit raw for your needs tho.
Mun v0.4.0 released
4 projects | reddit.com/r/rust_gamedev | 13 Dec 2022
But that’s not all! In total, this release contains 111 pull requests made by 5 of our community contributors and our two Core Team members & Dependabot. Thanks for having our back! For a full list have a look at the changelog, but the main improvements are:4 projects | reddit.com/r/rust_gamedev | 13 Dec 2022
For those of you who haven’t heard of Mun before, Mun is an embeddable programming language empowering creation through iteration. The idea to create Mun originated out of frustration with the Lua dynamic scripting language and a desire to have similar hot reloading functionality available in Rust. As such, it’s not a direct competitor with Rust, but instead is intended to be used with Rust (or C/C++) as a host/embedded language pairing. Actually, Mun is completely written in Rust, building on similar crates as rust-analyzer and rustc. Its key features include:
Mun v0.4.0: a statically-typed scripting language like Rust, written in Rust
2 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 13 Dec 2022
Whenever I read about Mun, I'm always really, really intrigued… Until I remember that it currently has no string type and support for one is not currently planned. That's a bit of a shame, IMHO, because otherwise, this looks great!

There's mun  which is statically typed and AOT compiled.
Lessons from Writing a Compiler

From the reverse-dependencies of the salsa crate, the (archived) Lark compiler used it and the Mun compiler uses it.
(async) Rust doesn't have to be hard

I notice that there are projects like mun trying to achieve a similar goal, but I'm kind of curious why they are not getting much attention from the community.
Rust Is Hard, Or: The Misery of Mainstream Programming

Have you heard of https://mun-lang.org/ ?
It's an embeddable scripting language with the goal of being a Rust-like language that supports hot reloading of functions AND data. To achieve the latter, it uses GC'ed memory such that memory can easily be mapped when the memory's type changes.
It's still in early development but maybe one day will serve your needs :)
After working on our Godot + Rust game fulltime for one year it is now up on Steam

In terms of pure Rust engines/frameworks it seems the overall "problem" is lack of scripting, at least from my perspective. Mun seemed extremely interesting, but since even the project itself says "don't use it" I guess it's not a real option, and considering the amount of time we spent on the GDScript/Rust integration I'm a little worried that rolling something more custom would be even less efficient.
