SPYR To Add Star Trek™ IP To Pocket Starships Game
DENVER, June 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SPYR, INC. (OTCQB: SPYR), a holding company with a wholly owned subsidiary in the mobile game & app development and publishing industry, today announced that it has signed a licensing agreement with CBS Consumer Products that will allow the incorporation of intellectual property (IP) from various Star Trek television series in future updates to and expansions of Pocket Starships.

Pocket Starships and Star Trek are a perfect fit, with both Pocket Starships and Star Trek celebrating a spirit of exploration and cooperation. We think that Star Trek fans will enthusiastically embrace the new Star Trek-based content we will be adding to Pocket Starships. We are confident that with Pocket Starship's real-time, cross-platform MMO gameplay, together, CBS Consumer Products and SPYR can take Pocket Starships and Star Trek mobile games where no one has gone before."
