Battle Bears is a franchise developed by SkyVu Entertainment (previously known as SkyVu Pictures) in 2008, a company based in Omaha and founded by the current CEO Benjamin Vu. Battle Bears: Zombies, originally titled just Battle Bears, was the first serial product of the company, an iOS game released onto the early AppStore. It was a wide success and led to many more story-based titles like Battle Bears -1 as well as spin-offs like Battle Bears BLAST. In 2011, SkyVu Entertainment released their first multiplayer game, Battle Bears Royale, which was renamed Battle Bears Gold in 2013 following an app upgrade. Since then, the company has grown in size and has planned the development of a TV show.
