It's been another quiet week for Ninja Kiwi, so this is gonna be a short post. The Auckland office was half-powered on Monday and generator-powered on Tuesday but regularly-powered for the rest of the week, thank the Monkey God. This did have a slowing effect on the goings-on, but we got some good behind the scenes development done to bring you more cool stuff over the next weeks and months.
For updates this week we've only got Bloons Monkey City on the website, and the Amazon store versions of the BTD5 Mobile and Battles Mobile updates mentioned in previous blog posts. The Bloons Monkey City update was small, just a patch to fix up some of the Contested Territory issues (scores jumping around not being able to collect cash) and help with server stability.
Questions from the Comments:
When Bloons Monkey City is out of open beta, will our cities be wiped?
Nope. The beta label for BMC (and SAS4) shouldn't generally affect players. It's more of an indication of how we feel the game is standing up. A blurry term to be sure, but not one you need to worry about.
If you control a Contested Territory in BMC and cash is still in it when you lose control, what happens to the cash?
It disappears forever.
Can you confirm if there will be an NK merchandise store, and if it will be soon?
There will be one day. Soon is probably not the word I'd use, but it's not tremendously far away.
Is Windows phone one of the new platforms you mention with "games for different platforms"?
Nope. It would be great to have a Windows phone version of our games, but at the moment we would rather not take attention away from the iOS/Android versions for a relatively smaller user base.
Is there any talk or even consideration of new missions for SAS: Zombie Assault 4?
There is both talk and considerations.
Do you have any information to share about changes that could be made to the forums and site in general?
The forums are the main focus for web changes at the moment and they'll involve spreading the viewing area out, giving better editing tools and making things easier to read/follow on the whole. There are changes planned for the site in general, the most interesting one for me is having the home page work for individuals a bit more; give you guys easier access to the games you play and things you do the most.
Thanks for reading everyone! Remember to leave a comment if you have something to say.
