Questions from the comments:
How does ZOMG feel about the DDTs? Does it respect their speed and versatility letting them fill a separate niche on the bloon team, or does it think they're little upstarts?
As far as we know, they don’t seem to mind them.
So how does the Navarch grapple the moabs? Grappling hook? The force? Sticky hands?
Super Grapple Hooks!
Why is the BFB in Bloons Pop so much bigger and tougher than in BTD6? I'm afraid to see what the ZOMG or DDT would be like in that game…
They are pretty scary.
Hey Ninja Kiwi, what’s your plans for the holidays? Isn’t the December 17th blog going to be the last one for the year?
Yes! Our team is taking a well earned break.
When are tower skins coming to btd6?
It isn’t something we have on the plans at the moment as they require HUGE amounts of work from our art team.
Why is Ice Monkey in Primary and Super Monkey in Magic, wouldn't it make a bit more sense if they were swapped?
Super Monkey is totally magical!
Can we get a picture of any of the NK pets? I forgot their names.
We have so many though! We have recently featured Bagel, Waffle and Crumpet.
Has the glue gunner ever gotten stuck in their own glue?
Oh, all the time!
Will we get (one day) 3d animations in the hero tab of BTD6 like in BTDB2? That would be super cool!
The Battles 2 team did an AMAZING job of these so these are something we’d love to look at adding to BTD6 but not guaranteed at this stage.
If there are maps like Haunted and Flooded Valley that have Bloon entrances also as Bloon exits, then what's the point of an invasion?
Bloons get lost too.
Where is the MOAB class bloons' dressing room to change skins? I'd like to see the mall.
It’s a bit of a squeeze…
Why is the marine from special poperations so small, around Psi's size? Who gave a child high powered dart weaponry?
Don’t make fun of their height, they are sensitive.
Do you have any ideas of giving the heroes character bios like whats their age, origin, hobbies, and personality?
It isn’t something we had planned but it could be very cool!
When you get Inferno Ring on a tack shooter, why doesn't the monkey burn up?
Heat resistant padding
If churchill is a captain then where's his squad?
All the military monkeys are in his squad!
I'M SO HYPED FOR GWEN PLUSH
do you, the NK team, like Tim Haywood's music?
Yes! It's amazing!
What determines what Monkey is chosen next for Paragon?
It comes down to the team having a clear idea of what the Paragon will look like and also what would be fun!
how does it feel to be a small indie game studio that's created one of the greatest tower defense franchises of all time?
Aw, shucks. Thanks!
How come the grandmaster ninja has one shuriken in-hand, but it throws eight?
Super hidden shurikens!
Is there any use of bloontonium in mortar ammo and monkey glue?
It's a closely guarded secret…
what do you prefer? kiwis or monkeys?
You can’t make us pick!
If Quincy is so strong, why doesn't he just slap bloons with his bow?
That’s Pats thing, he can’t take that away
Have a great holidays and happy gaming! We will see you all in the new year.
