In super comic geek news App Entertainment have recently let the world know that it has done a deal with Imangi Studio (the makers of Temple Run) to bring the world of coins and monkeys to a new format: the comic book. App Entertainment have a history turning games into comics, back in 2010 they inked a series based on Pocket God and more recently they did sterling work on the fabulous Cut The Rope
series.The story line will be based and build on the back story of Temple Run, obviously it will be set in the same world of temples and treasure. Indeed a large focus will be placed on the “mystery” that surrounds the temples, so you can expect some seriously exciting Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider type stories and use of phrases such as “Temple of Doom”, and “Temple of Tomb”.
While a printed format is planned in the future the comic will initially only be available in digital format being distributed via a separate mobile app sadly only on iOS (so iPhone and iPad via the Apple App Store).
It’s pretty amazing in 2012 that companies only release apps like comic apps onto one platform when it is so incredibly easy to port between app stores now. This constant failure really leaves a sour taste in our mouth and very disappointed.
