Questions from the comments:
Do you plan to add Cupid Quincy for some sort of Valentine's day event?
Not this year!
do you think we can still post our fanmade avatars to btd6
The competition has now closed but you can always post your own art!
Have you considered making another channel for fanmade games on your Discord?
This isn’t something we will do as this goes back to taking eyes off of our games.
It seems like the Marks of Honor and Marks of Awesome have not been properly distributed, at least for me, for a solid several weeks. Is the system for awarding those depreciated?
We did have some issues with this a couple of weeks ago but it should be resolved now. Let us know if that’s not the case!
Considering the size of the footprint in the new map, and the fact that you can fit at least one aircraft carrier in the relatively small body of water... how big is this creature, exactly? It must be the size of a skyscraper, if not multiple! It could use MOABs as party balloons!
A mystery wrapped in a conspiracy wrapped in a giant banana skin!
What does Al (the owner of "Al's Custom Chippers") think about the fact that his chippers will not be in BTD6?
He doesn’t mind so much, he’s retired as well!
Could you add a "Pat Footsy" skin for Pat Futsy that is just a giant monkey foot?
This seems like it caters to a very specific kind of person…
do you have statistics for which trophy store items are bought more frequently than others?
We do! The top 5 of all time are:
1. Googly Eyes
2. Santa Hats
3. Named Monkeys
4. Adora Sunbeam placement
5. Pufferfish MOAB skin
Since Street Party got ported to the jukebox recently, could other themes, such as Ocarina Time and Bloons House Party, be ported too?
We are definitely looking at some older music tracks but when or if they do get added is still up in the air.
Who wrote the pre-round comments for the original BTD games? Did the same person write them for BTD6?
Yes and yes!
What happens to the monkeys that get sacrificed by adora or the sun temple? please dont tell me there wishing on daises
They’re not wishing on daisies...
In the BTD5 trailer it is proven that bloons float. How do they hit Road Spikes then?
The spikes are piled pretty high, and we just seem to always get lucky that the last couple always land upright!
Will you ever plan to add towers from other games, like COBRA, or even towers from fan-games, like the charge tower and energy monkey from Bloons TDX?
We don’t plan on using fanmade ideas at this stage as our team has our own ideas and plans we would like to implement first! COBRA, however, is not one of them at this point in time. Although funnily enough in the initial implementation of the Alchemist’s attacks they would brew potions at a slow rate storing up to a certain amount that could be thrown similar to a charge mechanic. While not totally opposed to using such a mechanic it was reworked before launch as we just didn’t find the implementation to be so fun in that form.
What would happen at a monkey birthday party if the birthday monkey walked in with a bloon on a string?
Is Pat Fustys favorite plant a squash?
Ba Dum Tss!
You added a stat for ''Most experienced monkey'', now, why can't we just have experience as a stat for every tower in your profile…
That’s quite a lot of stats
Speaking of parents, did Obyn ever have any? Or was he just born from the ground or something?
Raised from wolves actually. You should see him eat at the dinner table, its a mess.
How did you come up with the catchphrase "more awesomer"
We just wanted to be more… awesome...er?
Are Bloons robots, or an alien?
The definition of alien is coming from another world or differing in nature or character typically to the point of incompatibility so technically, alien!
could a tower creator be in the works?
Our art team says no. It would be a HUGE amount of work for the art team alone, let alone the programming it would need.
Do monkeys go to school?
Depends on their career!
Are the bloons an organic organism and if not, what evil monkey is making them?
We aren’t entirely sure where they come from but we are pretty sure it's not a monkey making them…
Does being a hero in the world of BTD grant you any special benefits?
Cooler outfits and and some catchy catch phrases!
If you could make up your own lore for Bloons TD what would it be?
Every time ice monkey freezes a bloon, he puts glasses on and says “Time to… chill out.”
Do the other heroes think fondly of Quincy?
Yes! All the heroes are friends, just varying degrees.
is the ninja kiwi archive on steam coming back any time soon?
We are hoping to have news very soon in regards to this!
Do the other monkeys get cold when next to an arctic wind?
Continued exposure is not suggested.
What about your staff members on Scotland? How are they?
They’re cold due to the recent snowstorms! In all seriousness, we’re fine, thank you for asking!
Have a great weekend and have a very happy valentines this weekend as well!
