I'm sorry for not delivering the important BB news update last year. After years filled with ups and downs across many BB games, I'm talking with many of you as I carefully refine my plans. Thank you for your patience and continued support. I'm playing BBG and BBO more often, so I hope to see all of you on the battlefields in 2017.
Hi Battle Bears Nation, As 2013 comes to a close, I'd like to thank every member of this forum for making it an awesome year of news, updates, art, jokes, questions, fiction and tons of awesome ideas. You guys and gals inspire the SkyVu team in so many ways. When we refer to the forumers, we refer to them as the die hards, the most loyal fans we have. We are eternally grateful and look forward to growing this community in 2014.
I'd also like to thank the SkyVu community team that has worked tirelessly on keeping things updated and on track. They manage this entire website, not just the forums, in addition to tons of customer support tasks on a weekly basis.
2013 was a golden year for Battle Bears. BB surpassed 30 MILLION downloads, won numerous Best App Ever Awards, was featured by Google Play, made it on CNN, and was named one of the Top 50 Games Series on mobile by SlideToPlay. We even launched a BB game on two new platforms, Windows Store and Amazon's Appstore. All of this couldn't not have happened without the support of loyal fans like you! Battle Bears Gold (BBG) was our big launch for the year and you guys made it spectacular. By reaching the top of the charts, we were able to introduce Battle Bears to a ton of new players.
For 2014, our game dev team remains focused on delivering high quality BB GOLD updates chock full of new stuff and more optimizations. We're also hard at work on Battle Bears Ultimate (BBU) which will be our first multiplayer BB FPS (first person shooter) game. Yup! You heard it from me first! I've played early builds and BBU is going to be absolutely awesome. Playing as a Battle Bear in first person mode really gets you immersed in the game and my performance increased substantially due to improved controls. BBU's graphics are taking things to a whole new level for the series and we can't wait to share it with you. Below is a sneak peek at one of the awesome maps in BBU. 2014 is going to be a great year for Battle Bears!!!
Keep up the good fight and don't get hugged! Ben Vu
