Questions from the comments:
Have you guys been able to make any progress on NK Archive? If so, could you post such on the store page? I've been seeing the review percentages going down, and I don't want it getting bombed with bad reviews before a fix can come out.
We have received a lot of questions on the Archive status and while we appreciate the concern, we don’t want to post on Steam just yet until we have finished our testing. We are hoping to have news soon. Progress so far has been encouraging!
Are boss bloons ever coming back?
It is something we have looked at but we cannot say if or when!
Unaware if this has been asked before, but what happens when Bloons slip by, canonically?
They move onto the next area or into the cities and villages of the monkeys beyond.
Do you plan on doing limited-time trophy store items for valentine's day?
We don’t have anything planned for Valentine’s Day!
Are you ever planning to create a story-based btd game?
who the heck is Clive and why are the obyns battling them? im scared
Obyn has a voice line that sounds suspiciously like Clive… Have a listen, see if you can hear it.
Can challenges have a ban on certain crosspaths, and a ban on the use of the first, but not the second tier and the like?
Currently something like this would not be supported with how most upgrades are applied
since the wheel of fate is gonna die and you wont be able to purchase nk coins anymore what is gonna happen to the premiums in game
We’re still looking at what we can do with the website. No news to share at the moment
Are there any towers in the build stage for BTD6?
What are the bloons made out of? and why do they slowly turn into an undefined husk when not popped by the monkeys?
Rubber and they just run out of air eventually.
Archmage is the coolest thing ever. Agree with me you must
Why are there only 2 water monkeys? Will you plan to add more water monkeys?
Wa-ter you think?
How do heroes realize or become classed as a hero? Is it because they do well in a specific thing or some other reason?
They have to be exceptional and stand out as well as being willing to put the protection of the Monkeyverse before everything else.
Do you think you could add hero interactions in game? Say during co-op, if one hero was placed after another, they’d have a unique line acknowledging them in some way. I’d assume it get complicated with the different skins or with many hero’s but I think I’d be neat to see them chat if only for one line.
We’ve talked about it internally but we’re not planning on it at the moment.
When bloons leak, who takes responsibility?
Can Gwen cook?
Only if you like the taste of charring.
Do the monkeys only eat bananas or do they have other foods they enjoy?
They do have other foods, bananas are just the preference!
Who is making these bloons, and sending them after our monkey friends?
We are pretty sure its the bloon overlords
What ever happens to whoever flies the helicopter that crashes when you attempt to pick up the van in Bloody Puddles?
That particular helicopter is an unmanned flying object…
Are there any secrets in BTD6 that have yet to be discovered?
If I told you, would it be a secret?
Can we have more Waffle pics? I really wanna see how he's doin'.
Waffle is doing great. He is ready to start another year of dog training to become the goodest boy!
Have a great weekend and happy gaming!
