Top 10 Forum Questions of the Week:

1. ZKS:  Have you ever thought of opening up development to the community, like Valve does? Specifically, letting developers who know what they're doing build "Fan-Made" challenge levels? Releasing 1-2 with each update will allow you to focus on the story/enhancements while keeping hardcore fans entertained between updates.

I think that would be a great idea but an idea that would take a long time to develop, considering the game is only half way done and I haven't even started on multiplayer. Something like this will have to wait unless, you guys the players would want this before multiplayer.

2. Marth: Will we be able to fight Gary and Ash?

Yes and yes! That is all I will say.

3. Garuthebest24: If u were able to live in any region in Pokémon for the rest of your life what will it be?

Kanto Region!

4. Ume: When/Will you give out a Sneakpeak/Demo/Teaser of Hero Tower Defense? >: As in Video xD or a short Flash Game ;3

As soon as we have something we will post it here right away, that picture that you saw at the end of the last HTD tuesday is literally where the game is now. Right now you fight against an endless supply of whelps until your two characters die then that's it. Not a lot to do yet.

 5. Professor Smeargle: Since you can't include all the egg moves for pokemon in Daily codes, how do you plan to incorporate the other Pokémon with egg moves? (eg: Close Combat - Growlithe)

In the daily codes, I will add more in the near future.

6. ultraube: How many hours do you spend on most of these updates?

It's hard to really keep track of it all since I don't have a set schedule but I would say over 20 hours for each update.

7. Dollyface61: Will all of Kimmylube's avatars be in the game?

I'll try to find a way to fit them all when possible, v4.4 will have one :)

8. Cheatfreak208: Have you thought of the idea of Pokémon dropping items, which you can pick up. They would go away after a certain amount of time. And rare candies that have a small rate of falling from Pokémon and which you can not buy.

Pokemon will hold items in the near future, so I suppose if they are holding something and you defeat them that it would drop.
9. Hypermania: Will Kevin, at some point, work on the art for PTD if the chance comes?

He might, but we would rather he make HTD art for the time being.

10. Richard Harper: Hey Sam, Will all the past Postponed items/areas/bugs/extras ever be added? And will it include some of the bugs/suggestions from your own blog page?

Whenever I need to fill in some space on what to add to the game I will look at the suggestions and bugs pages. Most of the time just the story level and level cap can fill up the whole week. 

Well that was fun! Head to the forums if you want to submit your question and have them posted next week. 

So that's all I have for now, tomorrow will be Hero Tower Defense Tuesday so look forward to that. As always, let me know what you think.
