A hearty chunk of January is already over, and the various authorities have now realised that 2013 is well under way. So, what better time is there to get you caught up with Ninja Kiwi, and to give out some crumbs of information concerning what could be in store for the next [nondescript period of time]?
Closing out the end of last year, we released BTD Battles; the head to head BTD experience that I’m sure many of your fantastic brains have thought about before. Battles, for those who don’t know, pits you against an opponent, gives you the power to send bloons along their track and tasks you with defending against the naturally spawning waves and enemy sent bloons, in the hope that you can make your opponent lose, before they make you lose.
Since Battles’ release, we’ve introduced a couple of tracks into the mix and released the private battle system. We’ve got many plans in store for Battles so make sure you show us your enthusiasm for the game by playing it here, and discussing it on the forums.
New Ninja Kiwi Office
The end of 2012 also found a long trail of Ninja Kiwi staff walking down the road, desks and computers in hand, to their new premises. In some ways the new offices are a stone’s throw from the old ones, but in many more ways, it’s a whole new, magical world of wondrous possibilities. It’s bigger, it’s better and it’s several degrees cooler the majority of the time.Hard at work, or hardly working. Difficult to tell, really. Here’s lower angle, for your viewpoint pleasure.
New Ninja Kiwi Website
A new website is rapidly approaching. The momentous overhaul will incorporate all aspects of ninjakiwi.com (games, blog, forums) into one finely oiled horse. You’ll have a useful profile page, be able to join up with friends (make new ones if you want) and have more interaction with the site and community.
It’s not quite ready for you to see yet, but it won’t be long now. Expect activity feeds, messaging and all kinds of nifty things.
New Ninja Kiwi Games
A short walk around the office, glancing over the shoulders of artists and programmers, would reveal a solid selection of games at various stages in development. From my vantage point I can often see sparkling oceans flying by, or colourful buildings being constructed by deft drawers. While some have long been awaited, others are brand new ideas and we’re excited about showing them to you, though you’ll need to be patient.
A New Year
2013 is already shaping up to be full of new and impressive things, and we’re excited that you’re coming along for the ride. A new office for us and a new website for you will allow us to finely hone our instruments of awesome and deliver more of it directly at you than should be possible.
