Questions from the comments: 


Do you guys plan to add a "lose to win" option in Custom Challenges?
Not currently but maybe one day. 

Do you plan on adding more towers to BTD6? If so, would they be new or returning ones?
We do! At this stage, we cannot say for certain what they will be though. 

how the hell do i play bloons monkey city on the website? seems dead as flash is dead
Sadly, there is no way to play on the site anymore currently. However, you can play through the Ninja Kiwi Archive! 

Not sure if this has been asked before, but what are some of the team's favorite maps from BTD6?
I really love Winter Park - Sav 

Are the Druids and Obyn able to control other kinds of plants? And do they have a favorite?
Druid loves Dahlias but Obyn is more of a Philodendron kinda guy.

do you plan on making available NK archive to MacOS or officially releasing a .SWF file or Flashpoint support? I would like to play btd5.
We’re still investigating options for MacOS but no news at this time. 

Can I buy NK coins again on steam if the NK Archive is revived?
We’re still monitoring the flash situation and how the Archive does, but we anticipate re-enabling NK coin purchases in the near future. 

What happens to the monkeys when you flood the flooded valley? Do they drown, or do they teleport away, or do they turn into sea monkeys?
Teleported back home! 

Why does the storm upgrade keep getting stolen? It was in the apprentice in td5, then went to the storm monkey in bsm2, and then the druid had it in td6! WHY?
It's just a super cool power! If you could have it, wouldn’t you want it? 

Do the bloons like pineapples on there pizzas? Mabby thats why the monkeys hate them so much.
Hey, hey, let's not blame innocent pineapple for the bloons. 

Pineapple on pizza?
Sorry, I’m a fan! 

Have you seen SJB's No Monkey Pants video? Did you all chuckle a bit at the start?
Yes! I enjoyed Churchills “P-P-Pants?”. 

Have you ever considered making an AR game? If so, then would it be a SAS game or a Bloons TD game?
We’ve definitely thought about AR and even VR, but we’re not planning on going into that space at present.

Will there ever be plushies for sale? Specifically, BTD6 themed
While we would LOVE to have plushies, we don’t currently have a way to do this with our suppliers who do our current merch. :( 

Why (in-universe) do heroes start over at level 1 (or 3) each new game?
Every battlefield provides new challenges to our heroic monkey heroes! 

What's *not* coming to BTD6?
Tarn Monkey

Which hero cooks the best?
Etienne! 

Do you ever check out mods for your games?
We keep up to date on what the community is doing, definitely.

What is Jajajosh's staff-role at Ninja Kiwi?
Crushing everyone’s records in BTD6 

How long does it take to make and develop a hero or towers? i would love to see the inside of this!
It can take months and a lot of people coming together to get a tower or a hero fully developed. 

What are the working conditions like at the banana research facility?
Very ethical and safe! 

how scared would a red bloon be when facing a late game defense?
Bloons don’t know fear. 

Did COBRA retire? Or he's just preparing to make a comeback?
That's classified. 

I just reached rank 100 in btd6, that's a whole third of the way to Wise Monkey™! Are you proud of me???????
Yes! Congratulations! 

How does Fusty the Snowmnan not melt when you place him in water?
He's too cool for that

Have the Bloons tried using darts to pop the Monkeys?
Don’t quote me but… I’m pretty sure monkeys don’t pop when hit with a dart… 

 

Have a great weekend and happy gaming!
