The language design choices are nice and familiar to people who are used to other existing languages. Lua is a bit radical.
Two other options are AngelScript and Squirrel, which are both a bit older and more mature than Gravity and Wren. In my opinion they are
Finally, it’s much more feasible these days to embed something like Mono, and Guile has gotten a lot better.
