Finally, writing SEGA Saturn games in Lua becomes reality!
Lua is a powerful, fast, light-weight, embeddable scripting language. The Saturn Lua Player is a powerful runtime environment for homebrew Saturn games written in Lua. It provides access to hundreds of functions of popular Saturn programming libraries.
It's simple, it's fast, it's powerful and it makes fun! Making Saturn games is now as easy as opening up a text editor and writing:
slPrint("Hello World", 5, 5) while true do slSynch() end
The Saturn Lua Player has proved it's usefulness by running Police Officer Smith and various complex 3d demos. It successfully handles multiple 2D scrolls, rotational scrolls, complex 3D scenery, realtime gouraud shading, textures, save files, CD reading, PCM playback and a lot more!
Download the all-in-one Saturn Lua Player package as Zip (15 MB) or 7-Zip (8 MB) archive.
It includes 12 demos with prebuild ISOs, docs, tools and complete source code of the SLP runtime and all demos.
