Temple Run Celebration!

Exciting news from the creators of Temple Run, an app that is highly popular throughout USA and other countries. Temple Run, the app that was released one year ago, has reached 100 million downloads! With over 68 million on iOS  and 32 million on Android devices, add it up and you get the big number 100 million. The thrilling app that is FREE to download on your phone, tests your reflexes as you run down ancient temple walls and come across challenging obstacles as you try to escape the grasps of the temple dwellers.

“We never imagined that the game we were making and loved would be so well received around the world,” said Keith Shepherd, co-founder of Imangi Studios. “The last year has been incredible for us, and we are grateful to fans of the game. We hope to be able to provide them with more entertainment from the brand for years to come.”

Over 10 billion sessions of the extremely addictive app have been played since August 2011, equaling a combined time of 54,000 years spent playing the game, WOW that sure is an accomplishment Imangi Studios is proud of.  Based on the downloads, 13% of the U.S. population has downloaded Temple Run.  With its high rates on the chart of the App Store, Imangi Studios announced several licensing partnerships in 2012 for Temple Run, including apparel with JEM Sportswear, digital comics exploring the back story of the game with Ape Entertainment, card and board games with Spin Master, arcade machines with Coastal Amusements and sleepwear with Komar.

“100 Million downloads is a significant milestone for any brand in the digital space, and is a reflection of the mass appeal of Temple Run and the deep connection fans have with this unique game,” said John Leonhardt, president of DBG. In June 2012 Imangi and Disney Pixar launched Temple Run: Brave, joining together the world of Disney Pixar’s animated fantasy adventure, “Brave,” and Temple Run. The game flew to the #1 slot in the App Store, and has been there since its release! To me,  that is crazy and I couldn’t imagine anything competing with it’s honor.

To celebrate the one-year anniversary of the game, and the 100 million downloads milestone, all mobile titles released prior to Temple Run by Imangi Studios will be available for free to download for a limited time.

Temple Run is currently available for FREE in the App Store, Google Play and Amazon. Get it while you can!

So from everyone here at FBG we would like to say CONGRATULATIONS TEMPLE RUN ON YOUR 100 MILLIONTH DOWNLOAD!!!!
