Dual Universe is a sci-fi MMO where the endgame is mastering a built-in scripting language

Dual Universe (opens in new tab) is a tough one to describe, but we'll try anyway. It's a first-person space sim set in an MMO sandbox where the endgame involves mastering the Lua scripting language to customize everything from your ship UI to programming fun toys. You can program a game of Breakout to play on your ship's UI, for instance.
