Several projects are using it for MMORPG servers and it also well known to be used in creating Wings3D. I couldn’t find any libraries for sound & physics but SDL/OpenGL and WxWidgets bindings are atleast enough to try out this language for game development but is more relevant for concurrency. http://www.devmaster.net/articles/mmo-scalable-server/ https://www.humani.st/why-make-erlang-a-functional-language/ [...] [...] Its cool for game development despite being a niche & obscure language.

Of course, in some limited situations this may not be necessary but in the general case it is.
