I'm glad to say that as of today beta testing has begun! For those who have purchased (or have yet to purchase?) beta testing, you're able to join beta at any point in time as long as the beta is still running, so don't worry if you haven't gotten set up on the forum yet.
As for devices, the Android-only port is up right now and the iPad version will be within the next 2 weeks or so.
For beta testers, I recommend that you go through the Beta Testing Round 1, Version Updates and Screen Layout topics to get an idea of things I know about, how things should look and what content I'm going to be putting in for this round. You should also visit your platform's install instructions to see how to get Gataela on your device.
You'll likely notice that things are very, very stripped down. This is mainly so that if bugs occur I can pinpoint and fix them easily. Round 1 will contain all of the basic functions so I need to make sure they all work properly. As such, please do not be afraid to break the game and make it crash. Rather, please do so. Just make sure you post Bugs, Suggestions and Comments in their correct sub-categories.
Thank you and enjoy~
Ps. I changed the layout of the site to show the categories on the home page instead of the latest posts. If you happen to see any issues, please make a topic in the Meta category with detailed information.
