Questions from the comments: 


Is BTD7 in development?
Everyone knows monkeys only have 6 fingers. The BTD6 team is still completely focused on BTD6. We’ve got so many ideas and new features planned for you all. 

pick your starter hero, Obyn, Gwendolin or Admiral Brickell
Obyn for me! - Sav 
Depends what mode I’m playing. CHIMPS would have to be Gwen as you can only afford her otherwise I’d have to go with the Admiral atm. - Tarn

How early was btd6 being developed?
Design doc goes back to 2014. Programming and art started early 2015.

Is there any chance for the Sea Monkey made by u/ImLeeRii to get into the game?
We have seen the art but monkey ideas will continue to come from NK design instincts.

What are the heroes' favorite drinks?
Banana smoothies are a team favourite. 

Why was SAS 4 removed from the "Editors Choice" section of Ninja Kiwi website, while other older games such as Battle Panic and SAS 3 were allowed to stay?
Sadly, with Adobe’s changes and the fact that you need to roll back your Flash version to be able to play it, we decided we didn’t want to point players towards it. 

will there ever be new towers in btd battles?
Maybe one day but not anything we have planned at the moment. :) 

What happens to Fusty the Snowman when he's out in the heat?
The white fur is actually better at reflecting heat than brown. Even then, Pat never strays far from water. 

what happened to Endless Adventure?
So many good things about Endless but we didn’t find a core experience that we thought was worth sharing, until we can refine that thinking more, probably in a different game.

Will Tarn give you next Friday off Since your soloing this blog this week?
Nope! We are both back this week but it's always fun doing the blog, even solo! :) 

When's Super Bloons Adventure Time Battles City Player Pack 1 coming out?
Oh you mean SBATBCPP1? Never. 

How do heroes feel when being called the worst in the game?
They’re rather mature about it and realize their true strengths and values are more important. Well.. except for Benjamin, he funnels his anger through memes. 

What instruments do each of the heroes play?
Not all of them play! Pat is really good at the bongos though. 

Thanks for the pineapple pic, but I'm honestly feeling bananas now…
Sorry, all out! 

Will the last few skins from Battles ever be added to BTD5?
Probably not. 

How is everyone's week been at NK?
Great! Thanks for asking! Guess who’s making pancakes this week! 

How many pineapples do you have?
A few. 

 

Have a great 4th of July weekend everyone and be safe!
