Questions from the comments:


If heroes are at a level at which they can not pop camo Bloons, how can they tell that they're leaking (when they yell out to "Stop them!")?
The camo bloons will still give off static electricity as they pass the heroes making their fur/hair stand on end resulting in a sense that something has passed nearby.

My laptop has an ancient 32-bit processor, meaning I can't bring BTD6 with me. When will 32 bit btd6 be on steam?
It’s not currently on the list of things we’re working on.

When are you going to add multiplayer? please add this as soon as possible! its boring to play alone :(
We want multiplayer just as bad as you! Unfortunately, there isn’t much else to say about it at this time.

I got quite curious: is Benjamin a 4th wall breaking character? With how he "hacks in" cash and lives, i can imagine that he's fully aware that something/someone is controlling them.
He's not being controlled, he is the controller. It's not you playing Bloons TD 6, Benjamin is playing you. 

question: what should I ask?
How many times do you have to slap a raw chicken until it’s fully cooked?

Is the next tower released going to be engineer, or dartling gun? And what group would you put engineer in? Primary? Support??
The engineer is already in the game. It’s in a group of its own. The Monkey Knowledge icon / Obstacle remover group. In all seriousness, you’ll just have to hold on for a teaser for the answer to that.

Will you make a game where you play as a bloons general and try to send bloons against the monkeys to win? (or will i get a sarcastic reply about how bad i am to think about fighting for the bloons?)
Monkeys are friends, not food.

Banana pancakes.
Yes, yes and yes

will there ever be a movie about BTD?
Who knows! They made a movie about Pacman, why not BTD?

Wait wait wait you're skipping straight to 11.0 after 10.0??? That's awfully brave!
As brave as going from 11.0 to 10.0?

Did you pick the name Let it Go before or after a certain Disney trailer appeared?
Most likely after. That last race was left unnamed for quite a while.

CHIMPS race when?
We’ve been testing one recently that is proving like it will make the cut.

Rohan says it is okay, so I agree.
Disagree to agree said the dogs raining cats.

I Like Races
HOW DO YOU KEEP WINNING!?


Thanks for tuning in this week! Feel free to leave a meme or a question below and I’ll do my best to answer it next week.
