Hi ramzarules,

Currently, the beta is only through TestFlight. Please sign up through the following form:
https://goo.gl/UnDGwM



2)why are you starting the beta mid august where many people will be on vacation?

We will give the beta period plenty of time in August so that players will have a chance to play it


3) will it have timers/lives/limits to how long you can play in a session?

There are lives, however we have ensure that it will be enough for players to play in a good stretch amount of time. If it is not, that is one of the main purposes of beta session... we would like players feedbacks

Thank you and we hope that we answer your questions.
