Imangi Studios and Bruce Lee, LLC (they own the image rights for the martial arts legend), have announced that the late film star will make an appearance in the popular endless runner Temple Run 2. Players will be able to control the creator of Jeet Kune Do as they escape from the Demon Monkey, all the while receiving encouragement via inspiring quotes when they need it most.

Shannon Lee, daughter of Bruce Lee and CEO of Bruce Lee, LLC, had this to say on her father's introduction to the game:

I’m very excited to have my father become part of the Temple Run family. It’s apropos the character will launch in 2015, which just happens to be his 75th birthday year! Not only is this a great and fun way to celebrate my father’s birthday, but I’m grateful that my father’s legacy will continue to live on for fans of all ages via our partnership with Imangi.

Temple Run 2 is available to download from the App Store now for free.

Imangi Studios has gone and teamed-up with NFLPlayers Inc, and the result is a bit more sports in one of the App Store's more popular runners.

Throughout the season, many of the NFL's top players will be added to Temple Run 2 as playable characters. These sports stars will only be available for a limited time (via in-app purchase, of course), but will remain unlocked indefinitely who anyone that purchases them. First to make their way into the Temple Run universe are Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson (pictured).

Temple Run 2 is available on the App Store for free, and you can download the new NFL players for $0.99 each.

Temple Run Reaches One Billion Downloads

Posted by Ellis Spice on June 4th, 2014

Imangi Studios, the studio behind the hit endless-runner series Temple Run, has today announced that Temple Run and Temple Run 2 have together been download over a billion times.

Since the first game in the series was released in 2011, over 32 billion games have been played, with the games having been collectively played for over 216,018 years. In that time, over 50 trillion meters have been run, which is enough to go around the world over a million times. These numbers don't include the Brave and Oz editions of the game either, meaning the totals for the entire Temple Run franchise are actually even higher.

Keith Shepherd, co-founder of Imangi Studios and one half of the husband-and-wife team which formed the studio, said this of their milestone:

Having Temple Run reach the one billion downloads mark is a milestone we couldn’t have imagined when we first started out. We’re incredibly grateful to all the Temple Run players and our wonderful team. We look forward to continuing to grow the Temple Run franchise, as well as creating additional innovative games.

Posted by Rob LeFebvre on July 11th, 2012

Ape Entertainment, purveyor of fine digital and print comic books, is at it again. This time, they're bringing runaway success of endless runner game Temple Run to the comic book format. It will be released both as a print book, available in comic book shops, and a digital download as its own separate app.

“Temple Run is by far one of my favorite adventure games on the App Store,” said David Hedgecock, CEO of Ape Entertainment. “The thrilling gameplay plays into our plans very nicely for an extraordinary storyline that we know fans will enjoy.”

Ape Entertainment may be better known as the publisher of the highly successful Pocket God comics as well as a Cut the Rope comic. They announced a licensing agreement with Imangi Studios, the developers of hit game Temple Run, which spawned an endless supply of clones with similar swipe and tilt mechanics.

“The Temple Run game left a lot to the imagination, with more questions than answers," said Keith Shepherd, CEO of Imangi Studios and a heck of a nice guy. "We look forward to exploring the world of Temple Run and the adventures of Guy Dangerous in more detail with Ape Entertainment and the comic series."

36 Million Temple Run Players Can't Be Wrong

Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: RUN :: Read Review »

In a tweet this morning, Natalia Luckyanova, co-founder of Imangi Studios, the developers behind runaway hit Temple Run, let it be known that their game has hit 36 million downloads. Let's pause for effect here. 36 million iOS devices (they're working on getting to the Android platform furiously as we go to press) have this hot game downloaded to it. That's fantastic.

Now we all know why it seems like every iOS screen we come across has Temple Run on it. And why it's number 2 on our list of the Top 148 Free iPad apps and number 4 on our list of the Top 148 Free iPhone games.

Temple Run puts players in the role of an Indiana Jones style protagonist, running from diabolical monkeys through a 3D environment. This endless runner takes an isometric third person perspective to the genre, allowing players to jump, slide and turn down narrow maze-like paths with swipes up, down, left and right. There are also tilt controls to collect coins, which can then be redeemed for upgrades and special powers, like invisibility or magic bridges across gaps.

We've been writing about the genuinely talented (and nice!) folks at Imangi Studios since they began, so we're pretty darn excited about their recent and well deserved success.
