Egmont’s range of titles will cover fiction, ebooks, activity books and a magazine. Lisle has also licensed Annuals and Non-fiction Magazines to complete the global publishing offering.

The partnership with Egmont will see the development of new story content for the game with a ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ fiction series launching in 2014. Egmont is launching a new range of activity books that will feature the app brands for children. Temple Run will be a flagship title in the launch of the company’s ‘Downloaded’ activity book series and will feature puzzle and game content inspired by the game. Product across the range is expected to be in store as early as Summer 2014.

Gayle Tarrant from Lisle International Licensing said: “The partnership with Egmont is perfect for the licence as it will allow for deeper involvement by fans into this epic endless runner story and provides a new way for them to experience the excitement that the game creates.

“This next chapter for the Temple Run Licensing Programme will mark the start of an exciting year for the property, with Temple Run Annuals going in to market this month followed by National Geographic non-fiction explorative books planned for fall 2014. In addition a further game release; an additional global platform announcement; and increased marketing activity are all planned for 2014 to support the brand and licensees.”
