Hello everyone. Thanks for stopping by another blog post! Happy Thanksgiving for people who have the holiday this week, Happy Weekend for those that don't.
I haven't got anything to show you this week but a couple of games will be making an appearance on your radars very soon.
A Small Bit About Monkey City
Bloons Monkey City (web) was updated to sort out the Non-Stop mode that has been getting in the way for a number of players. We've moved the mode to a separate check box that will give you back the fine control over normal speed and fast forward that you were used to before. We also introduced a "Restart" button on the quit menu for those times you're going for No Lives Lost and something sneaks past your towers or your concentration.
Questions from the Comments
What are the chances of seeing more games, web or mobile, be ported to Steam?
At this point it's impossible to stay. It's a fun platform to be on though so if it's viable (and high enough on the list of things we want to do) we would love to get more games there. If BTD5 Steam does well and a desktop version of other games gets requested enough it'll definitely push us to consider doing similar ports.
Why did you choose to have a Ninja Kiwi bird as the NK logo instead of a Ninja Kiwi fruit (besides the obvious answer that a kiwi fruit can't do anything?)
I was going to try think of something vaguely funny but nothing came to mind. So, besides the obvious answer, Kiwi birds are native to New Zealand (where Ninja Kiwi started and is mostly based), it is a national icon and the word "kiwi" has been adopted as a colloquial way to refer to New Zealanders. Kiwi fruit are great but they don't really do anything for us.
Will content from Bloons TD 5 Deluxe (Special Missions, tracks, music etc.) be made for the Steam version?
It's possible that we will add that content to the base code that the Steam version runs on. That would likely mean that the content could go to the portable version of the game too. At this point our plates are full of updates that we want to get through so if we do decide to pull the Deluxe stuff over it won't be for a while.
How is the cold easily handled!?
Put on more clothes, wrap yourself in a blanket. You can only get so naked.
Xbox One or PS4?
I want both! I'd have to go with Xbox for now simply because of the games.
Aaron, what is your job at Ninja Kiwi?
Day 969. They still think I work for Ninja Kiwi. Must not give myself away.
Have a good day, folks.
