SAN FRANCISCO, October 9, 2012 – Dimensional Branding Group (DBG), a San Francisco bay area brand extension agency specializing in digital brands, and Imangi Studios, the makers of the hugely popular Temple Run app, are announcing COASTAL AMUSEMENTS as the official licensee for the Temple Run arcade game. The game is set to launch in early November and will feature high-resolution video graphics and the addictive gameplay of Temple Run.

Larry Seidman, CEO of DBG says, “This is a great opportunity to help create a first of its kind digital arcade game. This will provide Temple Run’s avid players and fans new ways to interact with the brand and the game they enjoy in the midways and arcade game center’s around the country.”

“The great selection of official art works well in an arcade setting to showcase the fantastic app gameplay that has proven to be fun and extraordinarily addictive,” says Sal Mirando, Executive Vice President of Coastal Amusements, “We think the 100 million and growing Temple Run players are really going to respond to this new brand extension that shows off the coolest features and scenes of the app in a state of the art arcade video game.”

“The pending launch of an official Temple Run amusement game came out of demand from the fans,” says co-creator Keith Shepherd. “People kept asking us where they could play Temple Run within new environments. We wanted to let our fans show off some of their skills in a different way rather than just their phones and tablets.”
