October 17, 2020: ORK Framework 2.30.1 released Tutorials | Try Out | Showcase | Asset Store | Support | Twitter | Facebook | YouTube ORK Framework released After more than a year in development, ORK Framework is finally officially released. My thanks to the hundreds of beta testers out there (and on a side note, please follow this how-to when updating your beta project)! ORK Framework (aka ORK 2) is the 2nd version of >ORK Okashi RPG Kit<. What is ORK Framework? Simply put, this editor extension is a highly flexible, all-in-one solution to create RPGs, action adventures and other related games. Without any coding. Features Some of the countless features: 4 different battle systems (Turn Based, Active Time, Real Time and Phase battles), all 4 systems can be used in the same game, you can even change the system type while in battle. Fully customizable status system (status values, status effects, attack/defence attributes). Powerful, node-based event system, used for cut scenes, battle animations, quests, dialogues, custom game logic or creating whole new systems in your game (e.g. calendar system). Quest system with automatic progress monitoring, fully integrated into menus, HUDs and event system. Bestiary system to learn status information about encountered enemies Ability system, separable in ability types. Item system, also separable in item types. Equipment system with equipment parts (e.g. left hand, right hand, head, etc.), separable in item types; the equipment viewer can display a combatant's equipment in the scene. Crafting system, also separable in crafting types. Formula system (node-based) to calculate stuff (hit chance, attack damage, etc.) - use all kinds of values (status, variables, distances, angles, etc.). Combatants, classes, groups (parties) and factions. Battle AI system (node-based). Save game system. Menu system, shop system, HUDs, ... Multi-currency system. Supports multiple languages. Items can be dropped back into the game world (and optionally remembered for later pick-up when leaving the scene or saving the game). Easy scene setup with the ORK Scene Wizard. Code access to gameplay related things (editor and core functionality remain closed source). Plugin system >Lot's of other stuff< Supported Platforms The following platforms are officially supported: Windows Mac Web Player Android iOS There are also projects in development on WiiU, BlackBerry, Windows Phone and other platforms, but due to lack of testing it myself I can't officially support them. Contact me if you need a special version or have a problem on a platform! Try it out! You can try ORK Framework for free with the limited version! The limited version includes all features, but is limited in terms of data quantity that can be created (e.g. you can only create 10 items). Download the free version >here<. There's also a demo project available >here<, and a WebPlayer demo can be found >here<. Tutorials There's already a bunch of tutorials available >here<. Tutorials are separated into >How-Tos< (covering specific features), >Game Tutorials< and >Gameplay Tutorials<. The game tutorials cover creating a complete (small) game with ORK Framework, from start to finish. The gameplay tutorials focus on different gameplay mechanics you might want to use in your game. I'd recommend starting with the game tutorials to learn using ORK Framework. Documentation Every single setting is documented right in the ORK Framework editor. Simply hover the mouse over a setting and the info/help text will be displayed in the lower left corner of the editor (you can change this behaviour in Editor > Editor Settings).
