Android Giggles: Ingress!

Here to share with you my latest addiction!
Got Android? Time to check out Ingress!
The augmented reality mmo that makes you see & cap points for your team everywhere you go.

The more you play the more you get sucked in. Hng.
Take it away, Wiki:
The game makers’ framing device for the game is as follows: Earth has been seeded with “Exotic Matter,” or XM, associated with the Shapers, a mysterious phenomenon or alien race which is neither described nor seen.
In the left hand corner we have the Enlightened! Who believe that the Shapers are working toward a powerful enlightenment which will uplift all mankind.
Then in the right hand corner, currently weighing in at 245.377.686 Mind Units, the undisputed world champion  known only as the RESISTANCE!
This faction believes in protecting humanity from Shaper ingression.
And tonight’s prize? ETERNAL GLORRRYYY!
Hoho cheesy.
Basically the goal is to cover as much of the globe in your color as you can.
This is pretty much what it looks like in game!
The incredibly cool thing that got me sucked in is how active the community is.
All across the globe anomalies occur that decide where the story will go next. People travel, meet up, hang out and play some Ingress.
You could say this stuff gets taken pretty seriously.

Very. Seriously.
Now on a smaller scale i’ve actually noticed people in my neighborhood playing, passing by the same portal I just secured and attacking it.
It is pretty cool I tell you.
Not to mention portals are mostly located on Points Of Interest so you learn tons of new things about your environment!
Just yesterday a “virus” was released to make portals decay 30% faster, so if there was ever an active time to step in, it’s now.
Here’s my current player profile!
Now come join me!
Off to give Holland my undivided attention one last time!
“Orange on top”! Or.. well.. third!
Edit: Ingress is now available on iOS!

  1. Cool App! Have you tried the augmented reality app World around me? I worked with the name and made their logo and design! – Take a look –

    • At first I was afraid, I was petrified! No I wanted to keep my phone clean. Then a friend said “what else are smartphones for if not apps.” I was like “right.” and off we went. There’s so much stuff on the Google play store!

  2. my mom is not smart enough to maneuvre her android-thingy :o(

  3. I remember this, had it for a while but found that it had a tendency to drift away to places I wasn’t a full at, plus here in Vancouver it’s heavily unbalanced :(
