This weeks competition is going to challenge your creative sides!

We want you to design us a Tower Keepers Campaign! Of course, there are some limitations on what we can do (which includes the name!) but we want to see what you guys can come up with.

Give us:

  • A theme
  • A story about a hero
  • Loot/ reward
  • Or some details on what monsters you think would be awesome to face off against all in one campaign

1st Place: Their campaign will be used in the game as well as a random prize for their chosen game
2nd Place: A random prize for their chosen game
3rd Place: A random prize for their chosen game

Leave your entries in the comments below and your chosen game and username! :) 

Entries close 20th September and only one entry per person. 

We can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!

Subject to standard Ninja Kiwi Terms of Service, please refresh your memories here: Please understand we will likely need to edit your campaign idea to have it work within the confines of the game but we will do our best to stay true to your stories or designs.

Questions from the comments:

Do you have any plans to add the monkey engineer, bloonchipper, darling gunner and mortar into BTD6?
We just can’t talk about our update plans, as there are too many chances that we can’t pull something off technically or it takes way longer than expected. We hear you loud and clear, though, that you miss these towers!

If BTD7 was to be made, would it have bloons in it?
Who knows? Maybe we’d have a new villain in Bloons Tower Defence 7 or maybe the Bloons universe takes a turn for the worse and we have to help the Bloons defend against the monkeys!? Maybe thinking about BTD7 just makes our heads hurt.

Do you have any plans for the next ninja kiwi open? If so, is there a name for it?
Nothing at the moment!

On a more game related note: Is there any hope of getting the “Network Error” issue fixed in TK PvP? This has become a nuisance. Also a little interested on whether the PvP changes were intentional to open up the players level up. The PvP went from +/-2 levels to basically open.
Our team is aware of the Network Error issue but sadly, a fix is a long way off. As for the PvP changes, we have recently discussed making more changes to even the competition out again but nothing has been set in stone yet! This is also caused by the wait time when searching for a match as the longer you are waiting for a match, the wider the level gap increases. To avoid this, restart your search and start the process again.


Have a great weekend guys!
