Questions from the comments:


You guys are adding the time traveling cowboy monkey astronauts to btd6, right?
We would but they just have such busy schedules!

Is it possible to optimize BTD 6 further on both mobile and steam, so that it runs smoother and uses less battery/power?
We are always looking at ways to improve performance across all platforms and do so with each update :)

Where do all the things in the daily rewards chest in BTD6 come from? Is the chest bigger on the inside?
The same place the Super Monkey gets their surplus of Darts.

Will BTD 5 steam and mobile ever be linkable?
Sadly not. BTD5 was made before we had an account system so transferring data between platforms isn’t something it can do at the moment and not something we can implement now. :(

how to cook pizza at home
Put a bunch of stuff on dough and hope for the best. Really experiment with it, try some combinations you wouldn’t normally find at a pizza store.

Have any of you guys attempted the two tower chimps challenge?
Rohan has!

I do wonder: will there be another backstory writing competition for each of the other hero units in BTD6 or do you guys have the other backstories already prepared?
Maybe one day! We love having the community involved in these competitions but it will depend on if the community wants to do more of them!

on a scale of 0 to yes, how skilled is benjamin at hacking? while we're at it, can you ask him if he'd be my friend?
Yes - Have you ever tried to infect a MOAB with a Trojan? And we did ask him about being your friend, and he said he’d already sent you a friend request, which he thought you were ignoring, and he was getting really wound up thinking that you didn’t want to be his friend, so now he’s really glad and can get back to hacking the heck outta Bloons.

Does the number 42 mean anything to you?
Only everything. But that is coming from someone whose brain is fueled by lemons.

Mustard or mayo?
Mayo!

Mustard or mayo?
Mustard!

Have monkeys invented hot dogs yet?
Of course, what else would they eat on July 4th? Remember, they were around well before we were.

Do Bloons hate monkeys because Bloons love bananas and monkeys don't share?
There is no hate - only purpose, confidence, and bravery against impossible odds. But when all the stories are told, there’s usually some banana inequity that starts things in motion.

Did you guys consider combining your names for this blog, Tarnsav or Savtarn would be great.
I personally like Savarn! - Sav

What is the most questions asked by a single person on one blog post?
Probably 7, or some other reasonably low number so that you don’t feel compelled to beat it.

Do I ask the best questions of all time?
Hard to say. I think you’ve asked the most at least. :P

What will happend to the flash games like BTD 5/4, Monkey City, SAS 1/2/3/4 etc after Flash Player will end after 2019? Some port of the games for HTLM 5 or something similar? I am not the one who doesnt want to lose the BTD 5 progress or other games progress. Sorry for my bad english, my native language is romanian
We answered something a little while ago about this but if you missed it:
We're looking at how we can continue to have a great browser game portal at ninjakiwi.com and what we can do both going forward with new games but also what we do with our big archive of great flash games. No news at the moment, however.

Why is there a Camo Regrow Red on ABR round 5? Is it just for the memes or is there a hidden meaning to this? Maybe Robo-ISAB is NK's secret agent and you wanted to honor him for his great help. Or maybe it's there just for the joke. Or maybe you needed to test if the Legend of the Night's black hole can destroy the Camo Regrow Red in one hit and Dr. Monkey's Bloon Simulator (aka Sandbox) couldn't replicate the real CRRs' overpoweredness. Or maybe I'm thinking about it too much. Maybe. We may never know.
What, I just woke up. Dang it, I drooled on my keyboard again.

Why don't you make some sort of contest where we think about the designs (upgrades or looks) of the engineer, bloonchipper and dartling monkey, so that once you start developing the towers (if you haven't already) you can start with a solid base and probably have them ready faster, in addition to giving what the fans want?
How about a contest to come up with the best contest?

 

Have a great weekend everyone and happy gaming!
