Do you have any tips for me about where I can find good tutorials and such for learning lua.
It probably depends on your overall experience with programming and what you want to achieve. If your goal is just to get started making games I would actually recommend you to take a look at game maker by yoyo games. It's a great 2D game engine where a lot of commercial games are made.
On the other hand, if you are interested in programming, love 2D and lua is a good place to start. Maybe this is a good starting point: http://www.osmstudios.com/tutorials/your-first-lov... ? Please let me know what you are looking for and I can probably give you better advice. :)
If you want to make some lua games you can check out pico-8 which is a fantasy console where you can make games and browse them or you can download tic-80 which is basically the same thing and it's on itch.io (pico-8 cost money and tic-80 is free to download).
