Questions from the comments:
Does Psi from BTD6 know Sai from BATTD and if so have there ever been any mix ups involving their names?
All the time! They became pretty good friends because of it.
What happened to the blueprints of the bloonchipper? I assume they got lost or something.
Burned in a horrible fire, never to be seen again. Gwen denies all responsibility.
Which emotes will be in Battles 2?
We’ve got tons of awesome emotes planned to let people express themselves on the battlefield!
Is the lead bloon just 2 black bloons in a hollow lead shell or is the lead bloon a rubber bloon covered with lead?
What is this rubber you speak of? Lead bloons are just that, bloons made of lead!
If monkeys go home when you sell them, do they have to run back if you buy them again?
Nope, there's other ones waiting to be deployed!
What happens to non-monkey towers that get sold?
Packed down and sent back to storage!
What are those wierd mechanical parts on cornfield?
Mechanical parts? There's two old wagon wheels and some gumboots!
Will you answer no to this question?
How do the bloons feel about being syphoned by Ben?
We don’t believe they feel anything
What do monkeys do when they're not popping bloons?
Depends on the monkey, some love reading and some love video games!
So you guys talked about adding a tower/map/victory condition editor to BTD6 late 2021/early 2022 (hopefully) in the most recent AMA. My question is: How extensive do you plan these editors will be on release? As in, how much stuff can we edit?
We’re still in the early stages for that so can’t really tell you too much more just now. We do want to strike a balance between not an overwhelmingly crazy amount of knobs and levers but not overly simplistic either.
So does Psi know any cool monk(ey) martial arts?
More of a Tai Chi kind of monkey.
will you make a bengaming skin where the more you upgrade him he gets like a RGB keyboard and stuff?
Cool idea, we’ll pass it on!
I was just playing bloons pop and I would like to know, WHEN COULD OBYN FLY
Well the spirits guided him.
when will we be able to merge heroes in Bloons Pop?
When they allow it. They are so picky.
Do we be getting Bloons Pop on steam doe?
Not at the moment! As it stands, Bloons Pop is best suited for a mobile device screen and would require a lot of work to make it look as good on Steam and not a bad port. :)
How would the heroes react if they knew they were related to humans?
They seem blissfully aware of what humans are, so we’d like to keep it that way
According to Bloonspedia in Bloons Pop, MOAB stands for "Mother of All Bloons". Is this the correct full name of the MOAB?
It is certainly one of the correct full names… :)
How exactly was it that BATTD even came to fruition? Who contacted who?
It was a joint venture basically from the very start. The Cartoon Network team was an awesome team to work with and we had a lot of fun on such a unique project.
Can you please change it so that bloon cosmetics that should be able to stack can stack? Like for example, it would be funny to see trucker hats with beard bloons with the googly eyes lol Obviously not top hats with trucker hats though
Unfortunately, it just causes too many issues with the models and makes it look clipped and badly done. :(
Can Bloons be domesticated?
Maybe a regrow red? <3
Can Patch ever become a Hero?
She’s already a hero in her own way!
Bloons TD 6 feels like a pretty complete game now, complete with tons of heroes, co op, odysseys, challenges, and editors. I feel like the only thing left to add is new towers! Do you have plans for that?
Oh we have so much more planned, you have no idea. New towers may be among them but there's much more to come!
Which does Gwendolin like more, the Inferno Ring or Blooncineration?
Why is the roomba cat pet for etienne but not smudge cat ezili
Because Ezili has her cat on her!
What does smudge think of the roomba cat
Now that you don't update BTD5 Flash anymore, any chance you could give us that track editor?
Unfortunately, track editor is a lot of work, no matter which game so we won’t be adding it any time soon.
Can we get a pic of the illustrious "Art Director Beard"?
Sorry, it's a closely guarded asset.
Any plans for update 30.0? It's a bit far away but it's a big milestone, so you have to do something special for it, right?
It is a big milestone…
how are bruno and lochy doing nowadays?
Great! I’ll tell them you said hi! :D
Have a great weekend and happy gaming!
