Imangi Studios was founded by husband and wife team Keith Shepherd and Natalia Luckyanova in 2008 with the goal of creating small fun games for everyone to enjoy. What started as a dream job for the couple has evolved into a successful business, with Keith and Natalia now working with a team of other talented game creators. In 2011, the studio developed the mega-hit Temple Run, which has been downloaded about a zillion times. Based in Raleigh, North Carolina, the self-funded, fully independent studio has also developed a number of other games including Temple Run: Brave, Temple Run: Oz, and Harbor Master.
The Video Game Development Club (VGDC) is a student run organization with a mission to explore the world of video games for both entertainment and serious applications through the study and development of such games. The club acts as a learning center for those interested in video game development and the video game industry, as well as a networking outlet for aspiring game developers.
