Questions from the comments: 


Where do the bomb shooters keep all those extra bombs? The barrel only looks big enough for one.
The same place Dart Monkeys keep all of their darts! 

Why are the upgrades instant? I mean, it would take time even just to put on some wristbands, let alone completely remodeling a plane or building a gigantic temple.
They are really good at quick clothing changes. 

Can we expect BTD Battles update any time soon as it is still the 2nd most popular game after BTD 6 ?
We are looking into community feedback and working on some future things at the moment but we don’t have an ETA.

I see you Tarn, trying to cover up your 000 Tack Shooter roots
Busted

are there any plans to fix BATTD's balancing
It is something we are constantly looking at!

SAS 4 steam version update when?
Looks like the timer has been reset to 666 days. 

How do monkeys make monkey glue?
Banana Peels. 

Are the non-monkey towers actually alive? They still do stuff after all.
In the same way a self-driving car is. 

Have you considered porting the flash games to Flashpoint? They're archiving every flash game and trying to keep as much functionality as possible!
We are looking into our options and we have heard of Flashpoint! 

Will there be a BTD battles that is on the BTD6 engine? and will it be its own game, an update to BTDB or an update to BTD6?
We don’t currently have anything planned!

So the skins are canon.Me like. So, since Pat is currently the only giant monkey(from what I currently know, didn’t read the past blogs), could there be other giant monkeys that lived some time ago? And if so, what are their relationships with the normal-sized ones?
Pat isn’t a special kind of monkey, he's just a big guy! Kind of like how not every human is the same height!

If the hero skins are officially canon, then how do you explain Biker Bones? Did Jones' skin and fur just kinda… melt off or something?
Only temporarily. Have you seen Ghost Rider?

Have a great weekend everyone!
