Questions from the comments: 

Are there many monkeys living in the world you made?
A whole bunch!

Have you ever considered removing the Level Limit of 150 in BTD6? One of my favorite things about BTD5 was how hard it got to keep leveling up 80+, but BTD6 doesn't have that. Maybe Level 149-150, but then you're done.
Maybe one day!

Why not add another volume option for the hero's voice only ? It's kinda hard to hear it with the constant sound of popping bloons
The heroes are very flattered you want to hear them so much! I’ll pass the idea on. 

Was the BTD6 map Peninsula inspired by the Reddit community, kind of like the current map competition?
As inspirational as you all can be, that one was actually planned in the office. 

Hi, I've got a question that's near and dear to my heart, do you have any plans for TK?
Sadly, not at the moment. 

Did you guys purposely make adora's portrait to look like a banana? the colors, cape, pose... it can't just be a coincidence, right?
We made her look like the Sun God. So does the Sun God look like a banana?

What bloon type that Necromancer summons?

Any thoughts about double cash hitting co-op anytime soon?
We don’t have plans for it as some people may not want to play with double cash. Also, from a technical standpoint, it’s quite difficult to implement!

Is that Sam in the Santa Claus hat?
Nope, it’s Samta Claus.

What is your favorite tower Devs? (so far.)
I like Arch-mage! But I do change my answer all the time. I just love them all. 

What's the canon explanation for adora being able to sacrifice the true sun god?
Even the Sun God knows that sacrifices have to be made for the greater good. 

Any chances that it will be a port of sas 3 to steam?
No, sadly. 


Have a great weekend everyone!


-Tarn and Sav
