We knew that the free-to-play mobile game Temple Run was a success, but we didn't know just how big it had gotten until now. Imangi Studios has announced that in its single year released so far, it's been downloaded more than 100 million times. Roughly 68% of that was on the iOS App Store, and 32% on Android devices.
The studio also claims that more than 10 billion sessions of the game have been played in the last year, for a combined time of 54,000 years spent running through the deadly temple. The studio also partnered with Disney Pixar to produce a spin-off game themed after Brave, which sells for 99 cents unlike its F2P predecessor. To celebrate the milestone, the studio is releasing all of the games it made before Temple Run for free, for a limited time. The game has also gotten an iOS update that will add Retina support, new achievements, and the ability to toggle power-ups.
"We never imagined that the game we were making and loved would be so well received around the world,” said co-founder Keith Shepherd, in the announcement. "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."
