Questions from the comments: 


Have you ever thought about adding an email subscription feature to this blog so we can get the latest update in our inbox as soon as they come out?
As the website is going to be changing soon, we won’t be adding it at this stage! However, if you join our NK Discord, you will get notified as soon as we post it! Join here! discord.gg/ninjakiwi 

TK isn't flash based and supposed to be playable in 2021. How about the login at NK.com? If flash is needed to login on the site how will TK be able to identify players' accounts / progress?
While we aren’t quite sure what the website will look like after the end of Flash, TK will still be available to be played using your NK log in. 

With Adobe Flash reaching the end of its life, what will happen to the Wheel of Fate spin, since it runs on Flash?
The Wheel of Fate will be retired, sadly. 

Since you're no longer working with flash, will future games (BTDB 2, BSM 3, BMC 2) be one version, like BTD 6?
Yes! 

Can I log into the NK archive with a Google account? I don't want to lose my BMC.
You can use whatever log in you used for the web version! 

What is your biggest game develop rival?(ie Supercell, Epic Games, Tencent, etc)
We honestly don’t have any rivals. We do get on pretty well with the Grinding Gear Games guys though.

Do the developers of BTD6 have a roadmap for future updates, and is it possible it could be shared at some point?
We have an internal one but this isn’t something we would share as it is not uncommon for us to shift things around depending on workload and we would have to be constantly updating it. 

Is Pat Fusty and Cave Monkey related?
We have yet to find anyone brave enough to ask.

Everyone always asks how the game is doing, never how the game devs are doing. How are you doing in these trying times?
We are doing good, thanks for asking! 

Will you make the Ninja Kiwi Archive available for MacOS? I use Mac and can't afford a new Windows computer.
Sadly, it just doesn’t work on Mac. :(

So, how do we create custom odysseys? Haven't noticed an update.
There isn’t an official way just yet. We’re looking at the possibility of setting up a channel in the NK discord. 

How did Pat even get BIG?
He eat many banana.

Can you guys make btd6 compatible on linux? my windows computer broke down so now i cant play. Also is the TSG gender-natural male or female?
We are working with the team at Linux to make it work but we are waiting on them for an update. The TSG is gender neutral. 

Have the bloons tried putting fake monkeys on their heads so that the monkeys try to save the fake monkeys and accidentally die instead?
They aren’t quite that smart but they have tried to disguise themselves. It's just pretty obvious…

How many monkeys are there? Do all of them fight against the Bloons? Or do some of them have normal jobs (in the Bazaar, etc.)?
Lots and lots! A whole civilization's worth. Some of them do have normal jobs. 

whats the meerkat spy doing now? the secret agent in btd5 that revealed camo loons to towers inits radius.
[REDACTED]

how did the first sniper that got upgraded to 0,1,0 feel when he learned he had a hat?
Pretty stoked. 

When will you release Slonns?
April 1st. 

will sas4 web's servers still operate via archive even after flash commits non-existence?
They will!

What happens to the monkeys after you complete a map during an extreme odyssey?
They take a quick break before getting back into the action. 

Are blogs just bloody logs?
Odylo? 

What is your favorite BTD6 MOAB-class Bloon skin? For me it's a hard choice but I'll go with the Mauler Moab. (Also first comment :D)
The DDT Shark skin! - Sav 

Do the other monkeys not talk because they don’t have mouths?
Nah, just shy.

Are you guys planning on updating battd?
Not at the moment! Our teams are busy on other projects. 

 

Have a great weekend and happy gaming!
