Questions from the comments:


Will BTD6’s coop mode be called “co-pop”?
I can only hope.

Why will bloonchipper, cobra and special agents other than farmer not get added?
There is no guarantee that they won’t be added in later! We haven’t eliminated any towers from being re-added to the game but we cannot say if they will as we would hate to disappoint players if they weren’t able to be added in.

What if a friendly bloon floated up to the Super Monkey? Would he be able to stop himself to blast the bloon, or do the goggles force him to shoot?
Super Monkey can stop himself and chooses when to blast but a friendly bloon? Ha! Good joke.

We don’t speak of the incident when the Engineer found himself caught between a bloon and the Plasma Monkey...
Let’s just say that Quincy wasn’t the first person to get a makeover from Dr. Monkey… But some safety procedures were put in place after that.

How difficult is it to get the top comment you might wonder?
Apparently, pretty hard Joey.

What's your opinion on leaks? Do you support them happening, or try to prevent anything like this happening in the future?
We prefer for any ‘leaks’ to come from us directly as things that may be data-mined in this way could be a long way off or be shown inaccurately. It just means that there’s no one disappointed if what they see from one of these turns out not to be true.

when will sas4 have meltdown and ice station on steam or mobile, and can it also have alloy to the game so we can buy guns and armor (sry if some one already said what i said but i wish it could just have it) (btw this account im using is pretty just a random one i made, medium high level doh.
You can read the official SAS 4 announcement here

What's the deal with the name Kaiparasoft? Was it a prior name of the company? Perhaps the name in a different language?
It’s the prior name to Ninja Kiwi.


 

Thanks for tuning in this week! As usual leave a comment or question below, and we look forward to seeing what Quincy’s New Years resolution is going to be :)
