Independent game developer Imangi Studios has announced that its mobile games Temple Run and Temple Run 2 have together reached the milestone of one billion downloads. Since the launch of the Temple Run series in 2011, Imangi Studios has evolved from a husband-and-wife team working in their apartment to a thriving company. Temple Run is now one of the most downloaded series in mobile gaming history, having grown into a household name that remains popular with first-time runners and avid fans.

Some incredible milestones from the Temple Run series also include:

  • Players have collectively spent over 216,018 years playing Temple Run
  • Over 32 billion games have been played.
  • Temple Run players have run a total of 50 trillion meters.

“Having Temple Run reach the one billion downloads mark is a milestone we couldn’t have imagined when we first started out,” said Keith Shepherd, co-founder of Imangi Studios. “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.”

The massive success of Temple Run even spawned a new genre of 3-D endless-running games, which has grown into a top mobile gaming category.
