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.

Hey! You Got Your NFL Players in My Temple Run 2!

Posted by on October 13th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

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.

Imangi Studios and National Geographic Kids have partnered together to turn the Temple Run series into an informative and exciting book called Temple Run: Race Through Time to Unlock Secrets of Ancient Worlds. They have also created a new character for Temple Run 2, Maria Selva, based off the protagonist in the book.

“The goal of this partnership is to get students excited about reading and learning,” said Walter Devins, director of licensing at Imangi Studios. “Teaming up with National Geographic is an amazing way to let our fans discover some of the awe-inspiring locations throughout the world that have influenced Temple Run.”

You can purchase the book for $12.99 on the National Geographic site, and download Temple Run 2 for free on the App Store.

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.

New terrain and obstacles makes their way into the latest Temple Run 2 update. There’s a new landscape called The Narrows that brings forth treacherous terrain to run through. There are spinning saw blades that show up, too, giving players something new to avoid. The update also warns of crumbling paths that can force a last minute turn or jump. Watch out!

Seriously, the folks at Imangi have to be in a state of shock. They’ve just reported that Temple Run 2, the sequel to their hit game, Temple Run, has hit 50 million downloads in just 13 days. That’s a ton more than Angry Birds, which previously held the record as fastest growing mobile game, with 50 million downloads in 35 days.

Congrats to the team at Imangi Studios; we’re super happy for you all.

“Temple Run has evolved into something so much bigger than us,” says Keith Shepherd, co-founder of Imangi. “The game has performed beyond our wildest dreams, and we are thrilled that gamers and fans have embraced Temple Run 2 in such a short period of time.”

Looks like the amazing folks at Imangi Studios have another certified hit on their hands, as their just-released Temple Run 2 hits the 20 million download mark after only one weekend on the iOS App Store. The game hit the number one spot on the free app list a mere eight hours after it released, and is the number three top grossing app as of this writing. This sequel to mega-hit Temple Run, itself downloaded over 170 million times, is sure to continue its run across the top lists for some time to come. Temple Run 2 has pulled in over 210 million sessions, which Imangi Studios says brings the total time in-game to over 1,775 years of gameplay. Wow.

“The response from fans has been overwhelming,” says Keith Shepherd, co-founder of Imangi. “We are thrilled players want more of the Temple Run universe, and we hope to grow and expand the game over the coming months.”

Those crazy kids over at Imangi Studios, developers behind the uber-popular iOS game, Temple Run (as well as several other fine iOS games), have teamed up with Cafe Press, purveyor of fine “build your own” swag. Together, they’re bringing an array of items from shot glasses to luggage tags, including this customizable “Death Scene” T-shirt.

“The launch of an official Temple Run store really came out of demand from the fans. People kept asking us where they could buy Temple Run shirts,” says co-creator Keith Shepherd. “We wanted to let our fans show off some of the beautiful art and humor that make Temple Run so great and are happy to fulfill the demand through a fantastic partnership with CafePress.”

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.”

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.

Ahh, runners. Perfect for the iPhone. Well, any one-button games are really pretty perfect for it, I suppose. Of course, while plenty of developers can make games like that, not quite as many choose to maintain them.

Fortunately, Imagni Studios is the kind of developer that really caters to their fans with updates and added content. Case in point, Temple Run‘s recent update and price drop. Some new Game Center achievements have been added, along with two new playable characters (Scarlett Fox and Montana Smith) and two new power-ups (Boost and Head Start). The price has also been reduced to absolutely nothing (as in free). A final less touted, but in my opinion much more significant, change has been made: it’s now possible to earn free coins through special offers, as well as the tried and true methods of earning through playing and in-app purchase.

With the new additions, price drop and assurance from Imagni Studios that a new batch of content is already on the way, why not give Temple Run a try?
