Questions from the comments:


I miss Aaron. Any plans to bring him back in a future update?
We all greatly miss Aaron and I’m sure he’s having the time of his life. All we can really do is wish him the safest of travels and let him know he’s always got a home here at Ninja Kiwi. 

How many computers/tablets DOES Benjamin have at his disposal? Is there at least enough to supply every NK User?
All of them. 

Can you please fix SAS4 unable to join any multi-player games since this last weekend. Wanted to write this in the forum instead but even that doesn't work. It says it's unable to redirect to the correct login URL.
The forums had some improvements being made to them so there may have been some slight interruptions here and there and we’re currently looking into the SAS 4 multiplayer issue.  

Are you guys considering adding updates to Bloons Monkey City web?
There are no current plans to.

Has it been 666 days yet? Is Satan blessing us? Is Rohan Satan? Are you Satan?
Setting your device date and time won’t work for this one, unfortunately. You’ll have to come up with a more devious plan than that. 
Come to think of it, I vaguely remember something about souls, trade and somehow ending up with a Banana Pancake. 

Rohan is secretly Stan.

These were all amazing questions and answers lmao. For my question, where does the super monkey get so many darts from?
Super Monkey buys in bulk from the same store the Dart Monkey shops at. Turns out you get quite a discount for being a descendant of the True Sun God.

Is there a monkey inside the Bomb Shooter operating it? I figure if we find this out, we could also know how the tack shooter works.
If you really want to figure this mystery out, you should first take a look inside the Spike Factory. 

1. Is Fortress Destroyer still an active project? 2. One of the reasons that Mochigames shut down was due to the thought that the company had "no meaningful position beyond flash." (I mean, people have been calling for the death of flash since long before and long after Mochigames, but that was quite a milestone.) Clearly this is not the case for NK, but I'm curious as to what the future of browser-based gaming holds for NK?
1: Fortress Destroyer is not currently an active project.
2: Browser based gaming is more in the hands of the browser companies than NK, so we’re playing the same waiting game that you are. In the meantime we’ll do our best to keep our games playable on PC but that might mean downloadables rather than browser.

Any plans to allow the tier 5 Aircraft Carrier to hold more monkeys?
No, should just be 2, one on each of the platforms up top.

 

Have a great weekend Ninjas and, as always, happy gaming!
