A cross-platform easy to use 2D RPG creation engine
The Official Hamster Republic Role Playing Game Construction Engine (OHRRPGCE, usually abbreviated to OHR) is a cross-platform (GNU/Linux, Windows, Mac, BSD, Android) easy to use game creation engine for 2D role-playing games (RPGs) similar to the classic Final Fantasy. No programming is required to create a game, though there is a custom scripting language called HamsterSpeak which has been used to create numerous non-RPG games including side-scrollers/platformers, rogue-likes, arcade games, puzzle games and more.
The OHRRPGCE has been in active development and had an active community for over 20 years, with over 1600 games available for download, plus a few commercial ones. Unlike other game engines, backwards compatibility is maintained with all previous versions ever released. It has been free software since 2005, whereupon it was ported from QuickBASIC (and MS DOS) to FreeBASIC and given new life.
The community is centred around the Slime Salad forums and gamelist.
