  • The Official Hamster Republic Role Playing Game Creation Engine, abbreviated as OHRRPGCE or OHR, is an open-source, "All-in-one" game creation system. It was designed to allow the quick creation of 2D role-playing video games. It was originally written by James Paige in QuickBASIC and released in late 1997 or early 1998, and a community of hobbyist game developers have released probably well over a thousand amateur games since that time. In May 2005, the source code was released as free software under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL), and it was soon ported from QuickBASIC to FreeBASIC. The community is spread across two websites: SlimeSalad and (now mostly inactive) CastleParadox, with both being open to all game engines, although over the years more than a dozen online magazines, game and review archives, and discussion forums have been devoted to the engine. The OHRRPGCE is very simple to use, and full RPGs can be made without any scripting. HamsterSpeak, the scripting language used for the OHR, is very simple and can be picked up with no prior programming knowledge. As it is very specialized with many hundreds of available commands, many things can be done with it, although it does not attempt to be a general-purpose language. HUDs, battle systems, special effects, customized menus, and entirely scripted games are some of the possibilities. (en)
