Contests

From OHRRPGCE-Wiki

The OHR community often engages in game making and other contests. Many of those are recorded here. There are always several contests held every year. Sometimes contests held elsewhere are also advertised and entered by a few community members (most commonly Ludum Dare), but those aren't listed here.

Recurring Contests and Events[edit]
