      • Tip:

        Many projects have good small tasks that can teach newcomers how the project works. Now's your chance to share one of them!

        Include URLs if relevant (we'll automatically linkify them).

      Replacement art

      The art is non-free, but there's a lot of art to replace. The project needs artists to replace the pixel art in the game. See https://github.com/cxong/cdogs-sdl/issues/173
