So what, exactly, is ingress supposed to be? That looks like a trailer for a new show or movie or something. If it's a product, I missed it. Any details, because I sure don't want to visit some evil takeover site to hunt them down.


Seriously, is it supposed to be an app, and if so, what's it supposed to do?


Lol! Okay First! I want to thank the OP for sharing this because this is amazing.

To people who don't get it. There are games on the internet called MMORPG aka Massively Multiiplayer Online Role Playing Game.

This is that, but integrated with real life.

You ever hear about those kids dying from games sitting in front of their computers playing games for days on in with no food water and all of that? It's that kind of game, but on your phone.

Now, while I'm super excited about this development. This particular one, probably won't be super fun, BUT! I'm excited for future models and games like it that could actually develop into something more..

Another thing I find interesting is, that game is based around infrastructure in real life. So take the Empire State building. There could be some kind of code to "hack" there, or maybe a boss. However, there could be a conspiracy within the game. It feels that way, especially since the infrastructure is involved there could be a code related to real life events of the past of even events to come.. who knows?

Ingress.. the definition: A place or means of access; an entrance.

Tell me that doesn't sound like a conspiracy waiting to be found.


Thank you, and thank you! Figured it had to be something like that. Real life overlap, though.......I don't know if I like that idea. Yes, it could be fun. However, what about those people that can't quit playing games already? I could just see people losing jobs over something like this.

I've been playing for a week now.
It's pretty neat and gets you out and about unlike so many other mmo games.

I do like the way there are zero in game purchases, you get on by actually doing stuff and it's pretty cool to find a new portal, create a mind control field etc.

Absolutely kills your battery though.

I played just under a month... then I just got tired of the back and forth motion of the whole thing. Nothing to gain nothing to lose. It's like taking the story out of WOW and keeping the endless grinding.

The game is just another way for Google to gather and validate GPS data via crowd sourcing for their mapping software.

I've been playing this for about a year now. It's very addicting and fun. You have to actually physically go to "monuments' or sites around town, and try to destroy them or take them over. I'm on the Enlightened group by the way
. You can go alone to certain sites, some are difficult to get to, or in a team.

There is talk that Google might add a red team. Also, you have to have a deep understanding of how to attain and upgrade weapons, strength, status and ability to transfer the same things to other members of your group.

It forces you to get out of the house and explore.
