How to get started in game development with Lua without LOVE or any game engine

Recently, I’ve been wanting to get into Lua, and I just started to. I was wondering if it is possible to make a game, without the LOVE engine, like are there any built-in libraries I can use or external libraries? How would I install these libraries?

I am using the ZeroBrane Studio IDE, not plugins for Java IDEs.

I know this is pretty vague, but I have done some research, and most of it is either Roblox tutorials or LOVE tutorials.

Thank you
