Forth is a simple, stack-based language like WASM (Web Assembly) and the JVM (Java Virtual Machine). "Forth is used in the Open Firmware boot loader, in space applications such as the Philae spacecraft, and other embedded systems which involve interaction with hardware. The bestselling 1986 computer game Starflight, from Electronic Arts, was written with a custom Forth. The free software Gforth implementation is actively maintained, as are several commercially supported systems."
