Questions from the comments:


If every tower in btd6 was represented by a computable irrational number, what number would the super monkey be?
6.48074069840786...

from 0 to 10 how is it boring to answer questions like "engi when, sas5, skins on towers"
Zero! We love when the community cares about something to keep asking us and we are happy to answer those questions! As long as you don’t mind getting the same answers!

Why does some of Benjamin's right eyebrow look shaved? He have a shaving accident?
Don’t tell him we told you but he does it to look cool.

Egg?
Behold! The Egg!

 

Are there plans to make a BMC 2?
While we would be interested in this, not at the moment. Our team just has too many other things in the timeline! But yes, the team thinks about this a lot. Huge love for MCity!

Any word on adding the 2nd city (Bloon Dunes) to BMC mobile?
There aren’t any plans for an update for BMC at this stage.

How old is Gwendolyn?
337 days.

Do you have any plans for anything Bloons-related (besides updating BTD6 and BATTD, Bloons Battle Royale and porting BSM2 to Steam)? Maybe a Hot Air Bloon remake? That game is SO underrated.
I’m still voting for a Bloons Battle Royale but at this stage, just not saying! And just an aside we don’t think of updates as run of the mill content creation. We’re really into it. More like drinking cosmic ambrosia through a planet sized funnel straight from the monkey gods’ table. But yeah, besides that, not saying.

Do the Heroes have favorite foods?
Of course! It’s all banana flavoured.

Which tier-5 tower is your favorite?
Mine is The Tack Zone! So many tacks! - Sav
Tack Zone or The Biggest One. -Tarn

I admit, games do take a lot of time to make especially if no plans are in the pipeline at the moment...Maybe that's why there won't be any SAS-related stuff: because there simply isn't time to focus on them right now and there aren't any plans for them at the moment. Would I be right on that or will I stand corrected?
They sure do. We're still a very small team here so we need to divide our dev time as effectively as possible between our most popular titles. We absolutely love the SAS series and have heard how much you all want SAS 5 as well. At this point, there is no information on how the early stages of planning is coming along. If we hear anything we’ll be sure to let you all know!

the bloon master alchemists hat seems to be missing some things, lets hope he never finds them
I think the Boomerang Monkey got them first
