Imangi Studios has tapped Egmont Publishing as the global master publisher for its mobile game series “Temple Run.”
Lisle International Licensing negotiated the deal on behalf of Imangi Studios.
Egmont U.K., Egmont USA and Hardie Grant Egmont in Australia will simultaneously launch an adventure-filled publishing program for the brand this fall.
“Playing ‘Temple Run’ is an exhilarating experience, and our formats and content are as cool, fast-paced and exciting as the game itself,” says Sarah Bates, publishing director, licensed character books, Egmont U.K. “Our publishing offers a fantastic opportunity for fans to delve deeper into the world and characters of ‘Temple Run.’”
Publishing will kick off in all three territories this August, with the first two titles in a brand-new fiction series, Run for Your Life! The U.K. and U.S. will also publish an activity title in August, and the U.K. will publish two more titles in the fiction series in November, which the U.S. and Australia will release in early 2015.
“We’re delighted to have Egmont on board as master publisher. Their book content absolutely reflects the excitement of the game and will allow fans to further immerse themselves in to this epic endless runner story,” says Gayle Tarrant, partner, Lisle International Licensing.
