Questions from the Comments:

How does that sound?
It can certainly be considered!
 
When will we have our automated BTD5 DC picking system?
Still to be decided.
 
What's for dinner?
Food, I should guess.
 
If nothing is more powerful than God, and a spoon is more powerful than nothing, then would a spoon be more powerful than God?
No I don't think so. But could God heat up porridge so hot that even God couldn't eat it?
 
Can we have a CS where there's no events and only points from NM bosses count?
We can and I've sent the idea through to be mulled over
 
Will Bloons ever get a new tower?
Yes.
 
What's your favourite two-day rotational campaign in Tower Keepers?
Dunno, I ate all my food.
 
The Game.
It's only fair.
 
Will BTD6 be more similar to BTD5 or BMC in art style?
Our more recent art is a closer.
 
Is Aaron still on vacation?
I was then but not now.
 
When is the next Dragon's Hoard passive event in Tower Keepers?
About a week away.
 
Has Aaron died?
If so the after-life is freakishly similar to regular-life.
 
Any news on a SAS4 mobile/Steam update?
None yet, sorry! :(
 
What are the chances of SAS5 after BTD6?
Much higher than SAS5 before BTD6.
 
Are the experience points earned from Wizard's Chosen wrong?
Yes, it's currently giving more XP than it should.
 
Am I the only one who has to login twice every time now due to the DDOS check?
It's a bit finicky but should be setting your login cookie as long as the logged_in page loads. We're still making changes to this system so we'll try get it going nicely for you :)

 

Thanks for stopping by everyone! Leave us a comment below even if you don't have a question, have fun and see you later!
