What is the "community project"?

The "community project" is a project that has been announced in October 2017 by The Morpheus Tutorials. We build a 2-dimensional browser game from scratch. The team consists of people of different age groups. We meet in Discord to work together. You can find more information in the specification sheet.

Do I have to be able to code?

Is it possible for a beginner to help with the coding?

As a beginner, this project might be too difficult for you, so we might advise beginners to continue improving their skills.

Everything else you will learn in the course of the project.
