Killa

Killa is a programming language based in Lua and Javascript. It uses the Lua virtual machine and the Lua external C API with almost no changes but it has a different syntax similar to Javascript without the prototype mechanism and the ugly parts.

Killa is a work in progress but it is already functional and has been tested inside popular game engines like the Love engine: https://bitbucket.org/ex/love and the cocos2d-x engine: https://github.com/ex/cocos2d-x
